Referring to the recently released Department of Labor report, Thomas says, "With the unemployment rate at a 5-month low, and an increase in U.S. jobs in the health, education, retail and construction industries there is no better time to transition into a new career than right now. To make a successful career transition, you need to understand which sets of skills and areas of expertise you have that a company or industry values and use that information to create a strong, unique personal brand."
"Knowing how to develop and strengthen your own personal brand is critical in today's marketplace," says Thomas. "Those professionals who know how to showcase their strengths, talents and accomplishments are the ones getting the job offers, promotions and higher salaries. The key is knowing how to develop and successfully execute a personal branding strategy."
