Like it or not, we live in a digital-first age, where your first interaction with someone will likely be online. Which means, it is now possible to make a first impression even while you sleep. How does this impact your career? Studies have shown over 9o% of recruiters today, search for candidates online before they decide to give them a call. Is your brand ready for this? I have spent the last five years understanding how this digital-first world applies to and impacts our careers. This book is the culmination of what I have learned. Credibility has always been the key to unlocking career opportunities. In the not so distant past, credibility was earned by your time in a position, perceived company loyalty, and of course your level of expertise in your field. The challenge with this is that credibility was only recognized locally, within the four walls of your company. However, thanks to the Internet, you can now earn your career credibility, or CareerKred as I call it, globally, by intentionally building your personal brand, establishing your digital brand, providing thought leadership, and engaging with those interested in your field of study. In fact, with the right digital brand you can be recognized for your expertise globally. You are no longer confined by your company's four walls. During the course of this book, you will learn how to build your digital brand and use it to establish your CareerKred online. By following the 4 simple steps of the process I call D.I.C.E., you will learn how to define your brand, integrate your brand online, position your brand in your area of expertise and engage with your audience. This simple 4-step process will help you build a modern day digital brand that will set you apart from your competition and help you get recognized for your expertise, even if you don't know where to start. With the changes to the career landscape accelerating, it's time to take your brand global. It's time to establish your digital brand now, before you need it. This book will show you how.
