Hank Blank of Blank & Associates knows that today it is imperative to rise above the crowd. Today you need to be easy to be found and you need to look smart when people find you online.
If you are in transition, you are in a huge pool of great talent vying for a limited number of jobs. It is not about your elevator speech, it is about your Google presence. The chances of you getting on an elevator with the hiring manager are small. The chances of the hiring manager checking you out on Google are much greater. Whether you are a company or an individual you need to own the first page on Google.
You also need to be extremely proficient in social media and social networks to help your SEO and spread your thought leadership. You also need a strong personal network to create a strong reputation for you through word of mouth dialogue, generate referrals and empower you with resources.
