Do you want to stand out personally and professionally from the crowd? Join USJETAA and Amelia Hagen for a webinar on what personal branding is, why it’s become essential, and how participants can unpack their passions and purpose in order to create a personal brand. With the twin goals of authenticity and consistency, you will be introduced to building and communicating both online and offline, who you are, what you do, and your value, simultaneously enhancing your confidence around talking about yourself to others. Finally, we will explore how to maximize mentorship opportunities and being open to new experiences that expand the comfort zone.
