Branding Yourself

Branding yourself is extremely important especially when you are trying to get a job or create opportunities through marketing yourself. With this being said there is a warning, Be careful what kinds of information you publish in a blog or on facebook or mayspace, etc. Always remember that social media can be used for good and for bad.
I have often been given good advice on this subject like you should have a private facebook page that is just for yourself and that you share with only close friends and family and then you should have a corporate facebook page where you can direct potential employers and promote yourself and your brand. Like I said before you never know who you will meet, where you will meet them and what potential opportunities might arise so dont ruin it by airing all of your dirty laundry so to speak all over facebook or myspace.
Always remember that people are watching what you do via social media and you never know what could be harmful to your brand so play is safe!
