Developing Your Personal Brand with Social Media




When someone mentions the words “social media,” your immediate thoughts might conjure ideas of sharing pictures and status updates from crazy weekends with friends and family. However, social media can be, and should be, much more. It is a great way to develop your own personal brand –to share who you are with business connections and potential employers. Your personal brand is your look, your feel, and your message associated with your name.

There are many reasons to have a strong personal brand. Your personal brand helps people know that they should connect with you; provides insight into the industry in which you are involved; and demonstrates the value you can add to their company, and much more. To get started, try to create the three C’s for a charismatic online presence!

Character

First and foremost, let your online audience know who you are. Depending on the social media outlet, tailor your brand message to best suit the site. LinkedIn and Facebook let you write as much about yourself as you would like, while Instagram and Twitter only allow 140 characters.  Creativity is key. You will want your 140 character pitch, or  your online “elevator pitch”, to have a few main points such as: who you are, your area of professional interest, if you are seeking employment opportunities, say so and make certain your contact information is visible on the page. As an example, make use of hashtags on Twitter so people are able to find your profile when searching for specific content. If you say you are a student at #UNM in your “about me” section, when people search for #UNM they will find your profile!

Content

Your profile or your page, is your personal brand. You want the content posted to reflect your brand. What theme do you want to reflect to the world – potential connections and employers? Tweeting or posting things that are valuable to you or in which you have a professional interest is a great way to build your network and establish your credibility in the field. It goes without saying that you should always ensure the content you are publishing on the Internet is appropriate. My personal rule of thumb for postings, ‘Would my grandma be okay with the world seeing this about her granddaughter’? I like to keep all of my social media profiles fairly clean so that I never have to worry about negative images or status updates associated with my personal brand!

Consistency

You need to be confident that your brand reflects the real you. If for instance my Facebook page says that I am professional underwater basket weaver but my LinkedIn profile says I am Lobo Lucy, my audience will be confused! Consistency counts. It is crucial to have one image, an unified identity, associated with my name so that I do not confuse potential contacts. Having one profile image makes it easier for people to follow you and connect with you on multiple social media platforms.

You have complete control over your personal online brand, message, and image on social media. Helpful social media sites for developing your online brand are: LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Foursquare, Tumblr, and Vine! Follow me on Twitter & Instagram @SydneySivils or connect with me on Facebook or LinkedIn if you have any questions!


Sydney is a senior at the UNM Anderson School of Management and will be graduating in May 2014. She is concentrating in Marketing and Operations Management. She is president of two student organizations: UNM Collegiate DECA & Student United Way. She has completed internships with Los Alamos National Laboratory and Target Corporation. She loves post-it notes, to-do lists, and reading good books. You can usually find her at Starbucks in Zimmerman Library on a coffee run, buried in her iPhone tweeting up #ASMLove, or shopping at Target!

Making the Most of Career Week 2013



Welcome to Career Week 2013! We are so excited to bring you a great calendar full of professional development events designed to help you enhance your professional brand and communicate your brand to employers at the Career Fair.

We know it can feel overwhelming to look at the schedule of events, so we compiled the following Career Week best practices to help you design a Career Week strategy that works for YOU!

1.    Attend 2 workshops and Student Employer Reception. We encourage all Anderson students to commit to attending a minimum of 2 preparation workshops, as well as the Student Employer Reception and the Career Fair. It might sound like a lot, but it’s the best way to make sure that you are getting the preparation you need for Career Fair success! With offerings ranging from resume prep to 30-second commercial development, you’ll find something that meets your needs in our brochure. As extra incentive, when you RSVP for 2 workshops, you are eligible to register for the Student Employer Networking reception held the night before the Career Fair. Use this opportunity to connect with employers prior to Career Fair and walk in with even more confidence! Finally, don’t forget that registering for 2 events will enter you into the drawing for the HP Slate—who doesn’t want a new tablet for the school year?

2.    Research attendees on the blog and LinkedIn. Know before you go—make sure you do your homework before Career Fair! Researching both the companies and open positions will help you formulate educated questions and provide you with the confidence to network. You can view information about all of our attending employers on our website at brandyou.mgt.unm.edu.

3.    Make sure your Lobo Career Connection Profile is up to date. Many employers review resumes on Lobo Career Connection, but they won’t be able to find yours if your information is out of date. Check to be sure your graduation date and concentration are current and you’ll be set!

4.    Upgrade your Career Fair outfit. Did you know professional dress is one of the first things employers will notice about you? Make sure you’re sending the best message possible by wearing a polished look. Need inspiration? Check out our Pinterest page for ideas and some great discounts at retailers! 

5.    Pay attention to the details. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the greatest impact. Before you walk in to the Career Fair, check yourself out from head to toe. Leave your backpack with us at the front—all you need to take in is your resume and some business cards. If everything about you, from your polished shoes to your professional hairstyle looks great, you’re ready to go!

Don’t forget your follow up after the Career Fair! A thank you note, even if you are not actively pursuing an opportunity, is always a great professional gesture and will make you stand out from the crowd.

Stay tuned to the blog for my post-Career Fair tips coming soon—Happy Career Week!

Job Seekers: The Opportunity is Yours

I hear a lot of negativity from people when it comes to searching for a job. People say things like,

“There are no jobs available.”

“People just aren’t hiring.”

“There are 100’s of applicants for one job posting so what chance do I have?”

“I can never talk to anyone about my resume because I have to submit everything online so how can I really differentiate myself?”

The truth is the world for most post-graduation job seekers is a fearful and increasingly difficult one to penetrate; but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are jobs available; people are hiring; you can differentiate yourself; and you can be the one out of a hundred that gets the job offer.

If you want to be more positive and confident about your ability to penetrate the job market and be that one out of a hundred that gets the job offer the first thing you have to do is get up and DO!
Whether you are a new graduate looking for a job or in-between jobs, don’t just sit around waiting for the phone to ring; go and do something.

For example, try volunteering with a non-profit organization. Not only will this give you the opportunity to network with individuals that you meet through the organization, but it will also allow you to include the experience on your resume. 

When my wife and I moved to Albuquerque, she was looking for a job. While she was searching, she started volunteering with a local organic farm. Her desire wasn’t to be a gardener as a career, she just really loves gardening and being outdoors. Through that experience she met someone who used to work at the organization she was trying to get a position with. By networking with that person she was able to get connected with the hiring manager for the department she wanted to work with which led her to getting interviewed and eventually landing the job.

Had my wife just sat on the couch waiting for someone to call her, she might never been given the opportunity to interview.

Another thing you can do is get a job to help increase your skill set for the type of job you are really looking for. For example, I hire marketing representatives to sell commercial insurance to business owners. Previous sales experience is valuable to have for this job. However, it doesn’t have to be sales experience with another insurance company. You could get a job selling cars, cell phones, advertising or really anything that would allow you to gain sales experience. It may not be your long-term career choice, but if it increases your skills and puts experience on your resume; why not??

I know you hear a lot of negative things about the job market but every day is an opportunity to build your resume. Don’t sit around and wait for the jobs to come to you; make history, build your portfolio, increase your skill set and get out and network. This way you can be the one chosen out of hundred and differentiate yourself from the rest of the ninety-nine. Good luck!

Leveraging Anderson Resources

I’m not the sharpest person in the world or the brightest for that matter. But what I can attest to is that I try hard-- very hard! Even to the point where some people may say that it’s an incessant struggle. But what can I say? I’m committed to excellence. I’m a perfectionist.

A lot of people ask, ‘what is the formula for success’? Well, really there isn’t any. Whether it’s in the workplace or at school, I believe having a commitment to excellence will set you head and shoulders above the competition.  But conveying that message through a string of words is much more difficult than providing a vivid example through a story, so here is mine:

Coming from high school I was shocked when I didn’t get into the Ivy League school of my choice. Sophomore year I was shocked when I didn’t get the summer internship I so desperately wanted. Junior year I learned, yet again, that wanting and working for something are two different things. Disappointment ridden, most people would figure that it’s time to give up, but that is not in my belief system. I absolutely did not give up!

One thing that surprises me about my fellow students is their constant reference to missed opportunities because they ‘come from UNM’. I have close friends who attend Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Berkeley and MIT and according to them, it isn’t all that different. My classmates hold a belief associated with UNM, which I think is completely false and utterly baseless. I truly believe that because I come from UNM more doors have opened for me.  Allow me to provide some demographic background.

My friends at the aforementioned schools are pretty brilliant. They hold 3.5+ GPAs, are involved in extracurricular activities and have great interpersonal skills. With my string of failures, I could have easily said forget it. All my friends will have better jobs than me, better futures, and better lives, better everything! But this seems to me like a trap into which too many fall. I can testify this really isn’t the case. Utilizing the resources of our great university, specifically those offered by Anderson, will quite literally set you head and shoulders above the competition.

As far as I am concerned Anderson Career Services is bar none the best career services office in the country. When I visited other universities prior to enrolling at UNM, I was disheartened at the fact of how inaccessible were the resources at these other institutions. For example, I walk into Anderson Advisement and Career Services probably 2-3 times a week just to say hi to all of the advisors. If I were at another institution, I would have to make an appointment three weeks in advance just to receive any face time.

Also, our Dean, Doug Brown, is probably one of the most amazing human beings ever to have set foot on this planet. He truly cares about his students and his door is open at all times. This semester alone, I dropped by to see him at least a dozen times. It is astounding that students have such open access to such a wonderful person, and resource, like the Dean of the business school. If I were at a different university, I would be lucky to see the Dean twelve times during my entire academic career.  Not only that, but our professors, who are absolutely capable of teaching at any Ivy League university, are committed to educating the students at UNM and dedicated to our future success.

Please remember, don’t do yourself a disservice by perpetuating the UNM ‘stigma’. In my opinion, we have access to the best resources in the country. Start utilizing them! UNM is quality. We need to believe that. UNM isn’t just an institution, it is a sum total of individual pieces all dedicated to excellence - pieces such as you and me. I look at my fellow classmates and they are some pretty brilliant individuals.

I can picture a day when the Big 4, MBB and Wall Street make UNM a recruiting destination. Have an altruistic understanding of yourself, utilize the amazing resources at UNM and make that commitment to excellence. Doors will open for you. They opened for me all the way to Goldman Sachs!

In doing so, students will coordinate sales and trade promotions, allocate their budget across various media channels, manage a budget, and measure return on investment. The online advertising simulation will provide an overview of the advertising campaign process. The course will culminate with the development of an integrated marketing communications plan, which will allow students to apply their knowledge. (Pre-req: MGMT 522)

Graduate Students: Are you searching for a free elective or a marketing elective? Will your career in any way involve influencing, persuading and negotiating with people? In other words, are you pursuing a career in business? Then you should consider enrolling for Sales Management --- MGMT 584 (Pre-req: MGMT 522)

MGMT 594-ST - Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer (taught by M. Beckett - IP attorney at Sandia National Laboratories) - Nearly every company, if not all, is dependent on intellectual property in one form or another. This course is intended to familiarize and educate the business student in areas of intellectual property law and technology transfer relevant to large and small businesses, non-profits and research institutions. Topics to be covered include a general overview of laws governing patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets along with strategies for assessing, procuring and protecting a company’s IP.

Professor Jurkat is offering MGMT 551 to MIS students for up to 3 credits this coming fall. The main topic is the exploration of the Integration Services module of SQL Server in order to prepare material for a potential data mining course. SQL Server has three “high” level modules called Integration Services, Analysis Services, and Reporting Services. The Analysis Services procedures provide basic and advanced data mining capability once the data for them is in an acceptable form. One of the standard forms is as objects in data warehouses and data marts. The theory and practices of data mining analysis are the main subjects of MGMT 635 Decision Support and Business Intelligence. If interested contact Professor Jurkat (pjurkat@unm.edu, 505-603-9412). This course is eligible for MBA-MIS concentration credit – see the MIS advisor (Professor Flor) for details.

Taking Back Critical Thinking and Intellectual Depth


It’s no secret that the last 100 years of University culture is now confronting an over-exposure to information.  Social media, cloud storage, and other technological developments have made it possible to access information instantaneously, sometimes diminishing our reliance on memory and critical thinking to mediate our actions.  As students of business, we must know about capital, morality, ethics, politics, biology, engineering, literature, psychology, sociology, art, and creativity in very complex ways.  We must keep in mind that the information that preceded us does not prevent us from making sure our minds are deep – that our thinking can draw connections in complex and fresh ways.  The merger of complicated thinking becomes our last best hope to keep control of our economic future.

I am a big believer in honor, in some very old-school ways.  I believe that honor is a fiercely derived function of credibility, very much like the way of a samurai or a master craftsman.  In this regard, I encourage you to find the spaces within yourself that help make your access to massive amounts of information into a code of honor, to turn that information into a part of your well-being, your intellectual depth, and your ability to shape the global agenda.  If you feel that way about your work, or if you want to participate in some of the work we do at Anderson that seeks to shape the global agenda, please visit our website, ibsg.unm.edu
