What’s your positioning statement?

Interesting segment on News10 Good Morning today about writing a winning resume and learning how to network. I had never heard of a positioning statement and that you should practice saying this statement until you are comfortable using it. I’m not a huge fan of the idea of self-branding, but tough times call for tough measures, right?

I was also glad they included a resume example. The only tip I can provide here is to create a professional web email address because, really, you still have an @aol.com address, Mr. HotRod69?

With unemployment back up to 12% in California, this information is good to have.

  1. Interesting post – I’ve never done a “Summary of Qualifications” section – it always seemed redundant if you have a professional skills section as well as highlights.
