Build your brand

After you have done an assessment and gather objective ideas about who you really are and what you want to do with your life (like get a job), the next step is to develop a consistent look on your resume, cover letter, blogs, facebook comments, Linked-In remarks and anywhere else you share the idea that you are looking for a new job.

For now, do an internet search on “personal brand” and you will find out in detail what is being suggested for building your own brand.

(I’ll remove this later) After a year away, I am writing again. On November 26, 2016  I logged my last entry editing “Non Quixote.” As I was highlighting names on a Cervantes’ family tree I was struck by the embarrassing fact that I was dead-end-drilled into minutia.

So, stop I did.

A screen from data base that collected all the minutia is shown above. It morphed into a bound, 65 page index of the activities of Luther, Michelangelo, Charles V, John of the Cross and Miguel Cervantes, to name some of the players between 1500 and 1600.

If anyone is interested I have charts and indexes in a folder at home.


The rubber stamp is used to mark an entry in the job-seers journal. It gets stamped into the next blank page when memory of another job comes to mind. Usually that whole page will be the place to place notes about one titled job.
