Questions to Help You Get the Role You Want

2. Have you identified your Value Proposition for your target role or business?
3. Do your marketing materials (Resume, Bio, Brag Book, Brochure, Achievement Portfolio) and your social media platform (LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) reflect your Value Proposition?
4. Have you identified and leveraged your Leadership Brand?

5. Do you have a target list of organizations that could use your expertise?

6. Where do the influencers or decision makers for your industry/career field hang out?

8. Do you have a weekly Career Transformation Plan with action items, targets, milestones, people to contact, etc.?
