Corp-Corp.com cordially invites you to join a Technology related webinar on title “How to create a strong verbal brand in this job market?”
Benefits of the webinar:
Most technology professionals come up short when it comes to verbalizing their message. From their resume, to their LinkedIn Profile, to how they project their message when applying for jobs leaves much to be desired. This webinar is about creating what has now come to be known as an Inductive Resume to project a verbal message that stands above the crowd and gets attention. Learn how to write a resume that gets noticed, how to create a LinkedIn Profile that attracts recruiters to it, and how to go after a job that you thought was out of your reach!
Webinar will be presented by Dilip Saraf, LinkedIn’s #1 Career Coach. He left the corporate world as head of engineering of high-tech company nearly 25 years back and has gone through four very different careers since then. As a career coach he has worked with over 5,000 clients globally in a variety of industries and authored five books (his sixth one is in it’s final stages) and countless blogs on career management, job search, leadership, and re-invention. Dilip resides in the Silicon Valley and works with clients globally.

A few years ago, a team at Duke University claimed to have discovered a way to match a tumor’s patient-specific DNA to the precise medicine required to cure the disease. It was considered a watershed moment in cancer research. That is, until it was scrutinized by third party sources. What they found was two sets of data. One set was the patient’s actual data. The other set was a slightly doctored version of that data. The formulas and tests only functioned under the false data set.
When we are faced with a massive challenge in our careers, perhaps the kind of seemingly insurmountable challenge cancer seems to pose, it is tempting to find the quickest, most glorious route to success. If you are asked to hire a consultant or a contractor, you hope your hire swoops in and magically resolves all of your problems. If you are that consultant or contractors, you hope your cape is freshly laundered and ready for heroics.
It wont work that way though.
Do the Work
When you are on a project – self selected or otherwise – do your due dilligence. Ask all of the questions, research all of the angles, figure out a method of approach. If you can swing in and fix everything all at once, either the people that hired you should not be in charge or you have done something wrong.

The consulting and contracting world is inherently isolated. You’re out on your own, finding new clients, surmounting new problems. In a traditional work environment, we are surrounded by other professionals who provide advice, examples and a support network. While they also provide competition, those around you can be a great resource when you’ve hit a wall in a project. Especially the sagacious advice of one who has been in your field much longer than yourself. These mentors can help you navigate office politics as well as provide insight in tough business situations. view more at http://www.corp-corp.com/blog/mentors-the-light-that-guides/
When you’re out in the start-up world, looking to create your own business or to get your name out as the go-to consultant in your industry, you probably devour mounds and mounds of tips on how to start. If you do your research you’ll discover 2 important things:
- Everyone is repeating each other: The message is generally the same – variations in flavor aside (we’ll get to that) most people are just rehashing old ideas in new language. It’s important that people are doing this. Everyone responds to different calls, different drums. So what if someone will only respond to your message on time-management if it’s put in the context of a sci-fi metaphor, at least they respond.
- There are two opinions: In the world of consulting, entrepreneurial-ism, or contract work we essentially respond to two different messages. One, Hustle, says we should go-go-go and grab every contract we can. If we take something we aren’t experienced in put that pot of coffee on and stay up until the wee hours of the morning learning it. The other mentality, flow, says we should responsibly take the options which play to our strengths. This way we’re always building a reputation for what we’re good at.
