What is your value?

image_about07Are you planning on making a change in your career or starting a job search in 2014?

More than 70% of people who leave a job do so because they feel “under-valued”. While they may feel under-valued, it is their ability to promote and demonstrate their perceived value to a potential new employer that will determine if their next move is a step up in their career or simply a step from the frying pan into the fire!

From recent college graduates to C-level executives, having the ability to clearly articulate what benefit(s) or value an organization would gain from hiring their services is the greatest challenge facing anyone seeking their next opportunity.

We no longer live in a time where we can be modest, to hint or imply that we are a viable candidate for any role. Our resume, cover letter, professional and social media profiles should clearly and succinctly state how our talents (education, training, experience, and accomplishments) can contribute to the financial success of an organization. When we do this effectively we differentiate ourselves from others who just don’t. Don’t leave it up to an interviewer or hiring manager to determine your value.

Whether you are currently employed, under-employed, or in transition, it is your skill to market and present the OUTCOMES of your talents by focusing on the positive financial impact of those outcomes, that will keep you moving forward in your career or job search!

Remember that “Your LinkedIn Profile = Your Value Proposition” whether you are working or not. What does your profile say about your value?
