A Personal Branding Summit – November 8, 2007

If you are in the hunt for a new job, or looking to advance your current career, personal branding is one of the best ways to secure a favorable impression from hiring managers or current bosses. Visit http://www.personalbrandingsummit.com/program-schedule.html and register to ‘attend’ the summit. Even if you can’t participate, register and the audio link will be sent to you.
