BUILDING PERSONAL BRANDS

THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR PERSONAL BRAND IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE IS INCREASING

Your Personal Brand consists of

  • Application documents (CV, work certificates, competency profile, project descriptions)
  • Your profiles on public platforms such as LinkedIn and XING
  • Your entries on search engines (e.g. Google, Bing)
  • Your press coverage

When re-staffing existing or filling new positions, recruiters and hiring personnel invest only an average of 43 seconds in the initial screening process of a candidate in the talent acquisition process. (Source: StepStone Österreich, 2018)

We know what current and potential employers are looking for and how to target your personal brand accordingly.

A PERSONAL BRAND IS COMPOSED OF THE FOLLOWING ELEMENTS:

Your application documents such as

• CV
• Competency profile
• Project descriptions

Your public appearances such as

• XING Profile
• LinkedIn Profile
• Press
• any other public information about you

The goal is to showcase a professional, sharpened and goal-oriented presentation of yourself along with your previously achieved successes and abilities.

PERSONAL BRAND

A person's personal brand is based on more than 50 different elements.

The complexity of an individuals professional life is broken down into various elements such as training, further education, professional career and experience, expertise, skills, person and administrative framework.

We keep finding that in many professional procedures e.g. the recruitment process, this complexity is only partially reflected both by the candidates as well as the hiring managers.

MG|VITAE sets out to assist the candidate side in preparing the previously stated elements in such a professional, meticulous and purposeful manner, that managers want to get acquainted with the candidate and hire them after simply reading the application documents. In addition, your public appearances on XING, LinkedIn and press coverage must be designed and synchronized with your documents, resulting in external acceptance and recognition reaching new dimensions.

Due to the close cooperation with companies in various industries, we know what potential employers are looking for and how the market reacts to your public information.

In our experience, only 10 percent of people assign the necessary amount of attention and importance to their personal brand, aspects crucial for convincing companies of their value.

REFERENCES

"When I originally started working on my own personal brand, I felt that my CV as well as my XING and LinkedIn Profiles were well shaped. But I wanted to get a second opinion and decided to use the services of MAGNIGROUP. My documents were professionally analyzed in a very structured way and a comparison was made with "Best practice“-cases. Next I was guided through a step by step revision of my documents and the sharpening of my profile. Through regular and meticulous interim checks and personal feedback, I can now also call my documents: “Best practice". I highly recommend the service of MAGNIGROUP."

"After years of cooperating with MAGNIGROUP as a client of their human resources consulting services, it was natural for me to turn to the organization, for them to analyze and optimize my personal brand. In several intensive discussions, MAGNIGROUP showed me where there were shortcomings in my application documents as well as my public profiles on LinkedIn and XING. Subsequently they supported me in the process of optimizing the documents and profiles. The achieved results now show my expertise, my skills, my competencies, my professional experience and me as a person in a very professional manner.

Without the sparring with this organization, I would not have achieved these final result."

Legal Safeguards

MAGNIGROUP‘s way of working differs from that of other personnel consultancies. We do not work with one extensive database and are therefore not interested in putting application documents on hold. We guarantee that your documents, which are processed within the business unit MG|VITAE, will not be used within the business unit of MG|HUMANCAPITAL.

If you are interested you will receive a confidentiality agreement before the start of the process, which is subsequently signed digitally by both parties. This protects your documents and our “intellectual property”, as we are not interested in our methods and content being passed on to our competitors.

Professionalism, integrity and trust are part of our corporate culture and a matter of honor for us.

We hope they are for you too.
