February 21, 2017 — 10:00AM EST - 05:00PM EST
This storyboard poster will represent several key elements to inform the improvement of personal brand as related to career development. There is a constant state of change within the dynamic healthcare information technology (HIT) profession. Establishing a professional brand that can affect career growth and unleash potential opportunities is a necessity within an HIT career journey. The content is applicable to those mid-career, transitioning professionals as well as new, traditional college HIT graduates.
The poster material includes four areas of focus. The current state of the national IT job market with a review of best first potential career steps, will be represented. Also included is determining perceived professional image as well as improving self-awareness. Enhancing digital professional reputations including social networking attributes, with a specific focus on LinkedIn, will also be covered. Lastly, deconstructing the recruiting cycle, including writing a resume, and preparing for and following up from an interview will be represented. Content will be presented primarily via graphs, tables and charts with supporting text for emphasis.
