The end is near....

Good evening class! 

Although the end is near it is safe so say that the world of blogging will continue to be apart of my daily life now.  This class has honestly been one of the most interesting, rewarding, and beneficial classes I have taken thus far throughout m college career.  It was not only educational, it was also very interesting and exciting.  Until this class, I had never considered a personal brand for myself. This course not only allowed me to gain a better insight in the world of marketing but it also gave me a better insight of myself.  This course has allowed me to gain many different ideas to add to my career and become more successful and better at what I do.  All of the assignments have been very beneficial and something I can take with me for the rest of my life no matter what career and journey I chose to take.  I can honestly say that my personal brand titled "How to Sell Yourself Professionally" will help me grow professionally as a recruiter coaching my candidates.

Kylie's Professional Social Media Blog

As a young professional, I have professional resumes, cover letters, bios, references and skill sets  listed on many different sites.  My goal is to actually sell myself to employers making them believe that I would be the perfect candidate for their company.  Including a professional profile picture, going into great detail describing my previous work history and schooling history, including personal references, skill sets, recommendations, and any groups or volunteer work I was apart of is something I make sure to cover.  It's also very important to come across to my employers as being determined, confident, educated, and driven.  I want them to be able to see my driven attitude from just reading a short paragraph.  Since I am young and new to recruiting and the full time work world, I also create my professional profiles by looking at others who are too in the same field with a bit more experience.  I have profiles listed on Indeed, Monster, Career Builder, and LinkedIn.  I have many different organizations and or groups that I have  strong interest in joining.  Most of them are head hunting/staffing groups and a few are HR groups posting advice, tips and quotes daily.

The internet is for watching the things that make you laugh...

Many people search vlogs for different reasons.  Why do I search video blogs? It's simple... TO LAUGH!  Life is too short to not to laugh and smile.  The vlog that I have chosen is one that is close to my heart for a few different reasons. 1. My family used to raise Pug's which are the cutest and most loving dogs one could ever imagine 2. I currently have a Pug that is an amazing dog 3. It makes me laugh and smile which is more important than anything I hope all of you that watch get a kick out of the video, smile on your face, and even invest into getting a PUG!  Enjoy!

 These are the five blogs that I have chosen to prove useful in creating my personal brand strategy.  In my own personal opinion, every single person in the class has a blog that I can relate to and find useful in forming my own brand in one way or another.  Some are sports lovers which holds a big place in my heart and lifestyle as well, others are first time bloggers which I can closely relate too and one individual has her own jewelry business which I think is amazing and very inspiring as I too am trying to become successful and start my career in whatever it may be.  One individual seems to have a big heart who loves to make people laugh which is where my personal brand comes in.  I have been through a lot of difficult tragedies here and there throughout my life time just like many others.  Making each day count and putting a smile on one anothers face is what makes this life worth while.  It was a stranger who knew nothing about me that reached out and made me laugh even when I didn't want to that helped me get through a very rough bump in the road.  Everyone goes through something at some point or another, lend a hand, make them smile, tell a joke and reach out; you never know how you could be changing someones life and yours as well.

Hello Class!  Yes, those are my two adorable dogs, the one on the left looks like a little fox, and the one on the right has a massive under-bite but I still think he is handsome :)

Last week I kind of jumped the gun by introducing myself with a picture, so this week I will just sum myself up for you guys!

I am 23 years old living and working in St. Louis, MO with my boyfriend and our two dogs.  I have only been living in St. Louis for a little over 6 months which has been a bit of an adjustment moving from a tiny town in central Missouri.  St. Louis is a great city full of many different things to do.  Unfortunately, it seems to be getting more dangerous by the minute for a number of different reasons that I won't get into on here.

I am a huge sport fan who rarely misses a game of the St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs.  My boyfriend and I enjoy being outside and taking the dogs on long walks.  We have recently started "house hunting" looking for our first real home together!  It has been both an exciting and eye opening experience.

This is my last class in order to complete before receiving my degree in Human Resources.  I honestly cannot express my excitement!  I want to wish all of you the best of luck during this course and can't wait to follow your blogs!

Sometimes I think to myself... "It's a good thing people can't actually read what's going through my mind," but here I am starting a blog giving you guys the opportunity to do just that!  I have never created one before but do find them very interesting.  I am 23 years old living and working in St. Louis, MO with my boyfriend and our two dogs.  There are many things that we hold dear to our hearts including sports, Cardinals baseball, the outdoors, God, a cold beer every now and then and of course our careers.  We are both highly motivated and can't wait to see where the future takes us.  I am a firm believer in making each day your own masterpiece, learning and moving on from your rainy days, making others laugh, and truly counting all of the blessings in your life.  I wish each of you best of luck during this course and can't wait to read what is going on inside your minds :)
