    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Mentor Connection: Personal Branding

Mentor Connection is a program in Duluth that connects college students with local professionals working in their fields of interest. Students participating in this program meet once a month to learn about things like LinkedIn, resume building, networking, and more. Tonight we talked about personal branding. Your personal brand is how you market yourself and your career goals in the job world. This includes having a stellar elevator speech and making sure that you are represented in a way that reflects your aspirations. One way in which I have worked on my personal branding is cleaning up my social media. When I googled my name tons of Pinterest boards came up on the first page. While I love Pinterest, that has nothing to do with my career goals so I changed my Pinterest settings to not include my boards in the google search engine. Now, instead of that new pasta recipe I have been meaning to try, employers are seeing articles I’ve published through the North Star Reports and my blog. Additionally, I use the “On This Day” app on Facebook to delete posts I made in middle school (yikes!) and require all posts I’m tagged in to be approved by me before appearing on my wall. This is especially useful if you have exceptionally political family members or friends who like to embellish their sentences with inappropriate language. Remember, employers can see everything you post so make sure you are representing yourself well online!
