These days, the most effective job seekers find opportunities not only by using the traditional resume, which is still a necessity, but by also building a strong social brand. What is social brand? We constantly hear how important it is for companies to have a social brand in order to create a strong online presence, as well as a loyal customer base and community. However, it is equally, if not more important for job seekers to create a social brand, and by this I mean establishing an online identity that effectively communicates who you are as a professional and as an individual.

I have recently taken on a new role at Treeline, Inc. I am still an executive recruiter, building long-lasting partnerships with companies and strong partnerships with sales professionals and my mission has not changed. I still help companies find and hire top sales talent and assist sales professionals in their job search. The new aspect of my role is that I am now building out a team of my own, and let me just say it is way tougher than I thought it was going to be.
As a member of Generation Y, I can admit that we are a technology-driven generation and possibly more free-spirited than most when it comes to a job search. I mean can you blame us? With all of this technology, there are so many opportunities to be part of something great, or be part of “the next big thing.” We have been told that we are the future and special and that in turn has led to the argument that we are job hoppers and have a sense of entitlement when it comes to skipping entry-level roles.

I often see people writing blogs about motivation and success and they usually help me refocus my efforts. One subject which I rarely see in business-related blogs is happiness, which is a major factor amongst those other topics. I believe it is very difficult to be motivated, driven and successful if you are not happy. I’m not talking only about happiness at work but life in general. There is no doubt that a work-life balance is essential to success and I believe that what you do before and after business hours can directly affect how you perform at work and how you actually perceive it.
