Do you know what Google says about you? Society is changing, and with it, the professional sector. It is already a reality that the technological world is part of our lives; personal branding is becoming more and more relevant in the workplace, and we must work on it if we want to stand out. Virtually all companies are present on the network, so we must be prepared and updated.
What if your name does not appear when performing this search? Watch out! Many companies will understand that “you do not exist” or, even worse, that you are outdated. If the person looking for you is a potential client, not knowing you will automatically generate great distrust.
Proper management of your brand will be decisive for achieving your professional goals; for this, you will need some essential tools and instructions.
Create a profile on Linkedin
It is the social network of professional contacts with the most significant relevance in our country. It is already common for companies to use this social network to evaluate their possible candidates or attract them; what are you waiting for? If you don’t have an account, you will have more options to be discarded.
2.Customize your social networks
You mustn’t reconcile your personal life with your professional life in your networks!
If you publish about your personal life, do it privately, because, as we mentioned before, more and more companies use these networks to screen their staff.
You must visually take care of your networks; you can start by personalizing the beginnings of your profiles, put funds according to the sector you want to dedicate yourself to …, even if it seems like an unimportant detail, the companies or people who contact you will appreciate that small difference.
As you know, companies have a logo as a brand image; it contains the essence and face of that company. What is our logo? Well, neither more nor less than our look, and therefore you must always have a profile photo in your networks. Your image will be your business card, so it must be professional and up-to-date, with a neat appearance and conveniently with a neutral background.
3. Frequently upload content related to your sector
It is useless to have a profile on the different social networks but to create content, upload content on topics related to your professional field that denotes that you are up to date on the news in your sector, you can also share content from other people who share your interests, this It will allow you to get a more significant number of followers and that companies can corroborate that the skills you say you have in your profile are real.

When looking for a job, social networks play a vital role; let’s say you want to work in company x, social networks can help you make your way. How to do it? Follow employees of that company, HR personnel, study them, observe their skills, the content that interests them, think about it! Social networks allow you to know the tastes or preferences of one of your potential interviewers, especially media such as Linkedin.

5.Keep your profiles updated
Keeping your social networks up-to-date is not only necessary when looking for work, but you should take it into account throughout your professional life. Many clients or companies reject applications due to a lack of updating.
