    It's a great idea to use beBee as a positioning platform for job seekers and for the employers who are seeking a synergy with employees passion and core interests.This idea can encourage everyone to stick around the idea of branding themselves.Branding doesn't mean presenting your core skills or core interests but instead positioning the output of both and sticking it in the hiring manager's mind.Unlike presenting your past ,positioning means telling your story from the employers point of view .Here, I understand that HR are going to treat employees as brands and therefore will be headed by Chief Employee Experience Officers! That's a great concept with good payoffs on both sides.Thank you @Juan Imaz.

    I held my stomach when I first saw Brand You 20 years ago but I can certainly live with it today. There is room in the 21st Century for 20th Century marketing because people readily identify with it and it is a perpetuation of a belief system which one can argue voraciously for. I am a heretic when it comes to personal branding but I am also a student of what brings us to embrace image and where we can find safe harbour and refuge from a society that is very image bound and where identification is important.

    Tom Peters - Brand You [1997]

    The Church of Personal Branding has grown substantially in the last 20 years so as a positioning device it works and will continue to work over the next few years. I recognize the rise of branded properties and acknowledge the 'great brands" and also superstars who deploy branding strategies to manage their public image, but Brand You is "personal brand" for the masses.

    I neither wish to view myself as product, nor do I see value in my subscription to what can amount to a personal idolatry, At the individual level "brand you" can turn into a virulent form of group-think because it is an idea virus, and in that form it is well worth studying as a social and group phenomenon.

    At a personal level personal brand has never been a personal requirement but it is worth playing with because social ideas are playthings that are seeds for personal innovation. Personal brand is required as a form of control since we are still evolving as a human society, and as long as we remain living in a broadcast culture - this evolution will be the slow path towards renaissance.

    Kudos @Juan Imaz. It's ME who aspires to become WE, effortlessly and seamlessly. In doing so, ME remains authentic and effortlessly united with WE. It is a social transformation that will change the reality and lives of all of us for the better. This is the process, but not like Kafka's process. What is important is the time. This is more like the creation of a new value by WE and not just a personal brand by itself. Future leadership is about social complexity with a growing trend of social encounters and exchanges. You are the one and we'll be back.

    Fantastic article Susan Rooks...I think the most important thing to remember for anyone bold enough to step out on that social media limb and publish an article about their own personal and professional insights is to remain "willing" to have a conversation...That means a willingness to be disagreed with and still have a respectful exchange with an even temperament...Even with the ones we refer to as "trolls." Personally, I think handling a situation with an internet troll in a respectful manor should be a prerequisite for any job;-)

    #33 " Every Click is a Person" That line is gold, and leave me with a lot to think about. It's true and it's nearly poetic. Some would say that the internet distances us, but if used the right way, it can instead bridge the gap between us all and connect us all as though we were all in one big convention center making friends! Thank you for the comment, I look forward to hearing more from you!

    @Kristen Maslanka I feel you nailed everything in your phrase, "it is not who you know, but who know's YOU." This world today is all about relationships, especially online. Every click is a person. We have to view them as that. If we view every lead we ever get in whatever type of lead funnel we use as statics, we'll never truly succeed. It is possible but it will take probably 1000 times for traffic. Great tips you left.

    #23 It certainly would, and I know i'd learn quite a bit myself!
    Clarity is something i can always improve on!

    Oh really?! Nothing beats an old fashioned book. I still end up with an entire floor of reference books open in a circle around me. I joke and call it my summoning circle of knowledge. (( if you like older books on foreshortening- Andrew Loomis' books particularly his book on illustration is a great reference))

    Goodness, that is exciting! I can't wait to see what you post with it. Yeah i was using an intuos for years before i upgraded to my cintiq, but I couldn't do without it now!

    It's the most convenient guitar for a student to keep without taking up too much room in the plane and in their apartment! I never thought of it that way, but that's a stunning way to view the instrument- I can look at my hohmer in a whole new way. The blues...golly. So beautiful. Ever check out Susan Tedeschi? That girl has a voice like no other. I like pretending I can cover her songs.

    If you ever want to jam some time i'm always open!

    Thank you. I mean that most sincerely, it's been a bumpy ride, but i'm going to make this work, and i'm overjoyed at how welcoming people have been on this website, I'm thrilled to make new friends and I take your words very seriously and with much appreciation. I also think the same of yourself.

    #17 Yes, I will let you know if we can do some collaborating. That would be cool. I'm sure I would learn something. Designing is to me, a simplified art form. Yes, for spectacular design, there is much time and process invested, but the real trick is clarity. One can't sacrifice the message, or content, for the design. Or it's a fail. Remember, we work in the boundaries of a 3 second attention span. haha It needs to be Boom! There!

    I have a small collection of art books from the seventies. So darn cool. I still reference them for brushin' up on fore shortening and what not.

    I am getting a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and s-pen Tomorrow! So excited! It's no Cintiq, but plenty worthy for what I need. I've been using a Bamboo pad and it's challenging enough. Time to upgrade woo hoo!

    Now I know what a guitalele is. How did I not know what that was? Sounds like an awesome instrument. Harmonica is the instrument of the soul. Think about it. Our very life's breath powers that little machine, and it has a spiritual sound like no other instrument. I love the Blues, maybe one of my favorite genres.

    Quick Fact: Anyone, and I mean anyone can learn how to sing in some capacity. The vocal cord is operated by muscle. Muscles can be built and trained. With practice and proper instruction, anyone can learn to carry a tune. :)

    That's very cool that you sing and are musically inclined. It's lends a great balance to our visual arts interests too. Gotz to have my audio!

    I will check out Pascal Campion's art. Sounds great!

    You sound like you're going places. Anyone with as much passion and commitment and enthusiasm as you have, is going places. All of the interests that you have are healthy, happiness generators that make you a winner and anyone worthy will be lucky to put you on their payroll. Just felt like sharing that with you. :)

    #19 There's a lot of stuff out there.

    For starters -- right here on beBee -- take a look for the various Hives. I belong to Career Management and Career Development. And then you can take a look at the people there. For books, the classic "Knock 'Em Dead" series by Martin Yate* can't be beat.

    I do volunteer career coaching with Greg Johnson** - a good resource.

    Bob McIntosh*** is another career coach I admire.

    Here is my list of helpful Bees:

    I am sure others will chime in with suggestions for books and other reference stuff!

    #15 I can see that. Yeah I've worked telesales, so I know how difficult the job can be, but I couldn't help but admire those that were so good at it!
    That's fantastic! My last name means buttermilk in polish, so while I don't get a lot of people assuming i'm buttermilk, I do get an awful lot of people calling me buttermilk once they found that out. Hence why my penname is buttermilkdoodles.

    #10 Well it's never too late to improve those talents, and if you ever want to collaborate on an illustration, or you are looking to improve your talents, I'd be happy to help critique or point you to some amazing reference books. ( I used to be a librarian, so reference is in my blood!)
    Are you kidding me?! Designing is just as hard as illustration! It takes a keen eye to develop those aesthetics to see the entire picture. I learned that in making my own comics- the aesthetic of the whole page and the organization of that page, that's hard stuff! Kudos to you.
    Tablets are great! I use my cintiq and I adore it but it would be nice to be able to bring it with me wherever I go. One day i'll have to invest in a portable tablet. Which one did you end up getting?

    I play the guitelele....sort of. My father is particularly musically inclined and I really can't play much on the guitar save a few riffs here and there and the occasional easy "smoke on water" tablature, but I can play a mean harmonica and I can sing!
    Vaudeville?! That must make for some rich stories!!!!!!! I'd love to hear more!

    How adorable! That's wonderful to hear. Family is very important, and make for some wonderful inspiration. (Check out Pascal Campion's art if you want some warm fuzzy family illustration)

    Oh goodness, I'm passionate about storytelling and art in general- so yeah that lends me to a lot of passions. I adore history, so I'm constantly pouring through books- particularly regarding the victorian era and the Rococo. I embroider, and I love cooking. I write- both poetry and fiction, and as my page suggests, I'm also a film enthusiast, so once I get my 35 mm camera's up and running again I'd love to pick that up once more and do some traditional editing/splicing! I also enjoy hiking and playing with my bordercollie.

    Hi @Kristen Maslanka, what a refreshing read! You wrote, "Asking them open-ended conversation starters, getting to know them as individuals, and inviting them to know more about you opens more possibilities than the one door you open when you simply ask them for advice," I couldn't agree more, when you reach out to others they are usually happy to help or offer advice. It's also a great way to begin new friendships on many levels.

    #6 There is a great group of helpful people out here, including everyone who commented on this intro. I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to any of us if you need any tips. Navigation is a bit different, but simple enough once you get used to it. Its a great site, if only I had a few more hours in the day, I'd be spending more time here. I think what makes the site stand out (the great interaction by other bees aside, and far too numerous to mention), is the involvement of @Juan Imaz and @Javier 🐝 beBee (The Founders) and their and thier staff's daily engagement of us users of the platform. They are working tirelessly to listen, learn and keep improving the user experience.

    Arse over Tea Kettle – When getting out of your comfort zone isn’t appropriate.You heard it many times. If you are going to do anything meaningful, you have to get off your butt and get out of your comfort zone. This is great advice… … until it isn’t. For the record, I firmly believe too many leaders...

    #61 the secret of my billionaire club membership is out; you have fooled me --oh powerful pilot of the temple made of stone!

    Now, all see my true identity --I must now stand alone, revealed as the naked rainmaker, kingmaker, and master architect/beekeeper of all hives that I am...a fraud...the "man behind the curtain"...I feel so ashamed; yet strangely relieved.

    You are a true master and revealer of truth!

    What horrible retribution have the Gods in store for me now?

    Oh Zeus...oh Apollo ...Venus; is that you mom? Oh boy, now I'm really gonna be grounded.

    I can't blame you; oh mighty Shaman --for it is I, and I alone who brought me to this shameful state!

    Perhaps the Cosmic Avian Masters will yet show mercy, covering my nakedness and spiriting away any redeeming features with appropriately timed packs (flocks?) of sweetly tweeting birdsong.

    Oh...but such dreams are as the delusions of the poppy eater...the Meade drinker...

    #58 That's what I thought. However you forget you already gave part of it way in your earlier comment when you said this.

    "I'm having trouble seeing how I can help Kevin's post make the Marketing Metric "top 5 ad revenue generators"

    So I am guessing after reading that a lot of people are wondering what is going on?

    Who is involved?

    How does this work?

    By your answer of classified you have now brought the integrity of everyone involved into question.

    #56 Then here's some education. That would be anyone not a part or informed about the controlled experiment ahead of time. That would be your outside observers since they are not in on the back stage set up of the experiment. They are also the guinea pigs at the same time.

    How long was the planning for the controlled experiment we have going here?

    Who planned it?

    Who is executing it?


    What's the results that the experiment might produce?

    As much as I love being around water, I will never have your problem @Kevin Pashuk.
    Years of swimming lessons as a youngster were a complete waste. You just can't teach a rock to swim.
    I will, however, reluctantly wade out into the water until my feet no longer touch the bottom, thus, preventing an embarrassing panic attack.
    After I've dried off, I head to the nearest comfort zone, which is referred to as a Tiki bar. That's where its wise to know your limits.

    #46 @Kevin Pashuk please don't take mine or anyone's word on it; that is a big problem these days (not because we're wrong --we're not; but because it's really a nice example of a case to surrender faith, belief, etc...AND CONDUCT AN EXPERIMENT).

    There is a pandemic of "scientific literature" that is nothing of the kind ...it reads like a religious tract: "Scientists have found that A causes B; Take our word for it"...and people do; and the soon to be "leader of the free world" loves this stuff and is already exerting influence in easing FDA standards for new drug approvals, firing those "pain in the ass real scientists who fail to play along"...do a version of @Phil Friedman experiment (if you can without messing up anything in the house and causing strife)...do it for umm..the free world, queen and country, Ron Wood's son (the PM)!

    #45 @Phil Friedman and @Gerald Hecht... from this day forward, I shall think of myself as 'muscular'. As for buoyancy... while I am not a scientist or kinesiologist, I'll take your word for it. All I know, is that if I ever drown, look for the body at the deepest point of the lake.
    Phil Friedman
    29/12/2016 #45 Phil Friedman
    Kevin, @Gerald Hecht, is correct. It is a matter of weight-to-body-volume ratio. It is not purely a matter of weight. Think Archimedes. Fill a tub completely full to the brim with water. Then immerse yourself completely, head and all. Capture the water overflow. Measure its volume in cubic feet. This is your overall body volume. Compare this to your weight. Determine your weight/volume ratio. Do the same for a "floater" (not a "dead soldier" in sewerological terms). Compare the ratio between you and the "floater". The floater will have a lower weight/volume ratio. The ratio is affected by the ratio of bone to overall body volume. Also by the ratio of muscle to fat. How this relates to the comments of the "professional" challenger of other people's ideas, I cannot say, and cannot discern. But no matter, I think. Come to think of it, perhaps the connection is an implicit suggestion to sell you some hot air, which would certainly help with your buoyancy. Cheers!

    I never make the same mistake twice. I'm far too busy inventing new mistakes to make.

    When we're kids, we ask, "Why?" about everything. We get it pushed out of us as we mature. Some of us are lucky enough to morph the question into, "Why not?"

    Some very, very few of us hang on to both questions.

    I consider myself lucky. I have 47 years of experience at being 10 years old. Just ask my wife.

    Thanks for the mention, @Wayne Yoshida! And a most excellent reminder of ways we CAN stay relevant as we age. I particuarly like the "I make mistakes all the time," because I keep thinking that I shouldn't! But of course, we all do. The best part is learning from them.
