Forget Personal Branding: What About a Sing-A-Long Resume?

October 2, 2008 at 8:00 pm 3 comments

I have lot more to report from the World Social Marketing Conference, however, this news bit is too good not too share. Last week, I connected with Holly Grande on Twitter, and this girl is smart. Not only is she a rising public relations star, but you may not know that she is also rising singing sensation.

So I might have exaggerated a bit (though she has done voice overs for Radio Disney), but Holly took the usual ‘resume’ section on her blog, and instead of posting her actual resume, Holly provided a new range in entertainment. Literally. Check out Holly’s “Sing-A-Long Resume” below. Who wouldn’t hire someone with this innovative creativty (and bravery)?

You can get catch more of Holly on her blog and at BrazenCareerist. What other unique ways have you or your friends done to re-frame and refresh your resume?

    Haha that is hilarious. I dont know exactly how she would have the courage to do that in a real interview situation but if it ever came up she would be very prepared! haha. Hilarious. Do you have any tips on using all of the other blog tools like twitter and stumbleupon, etc.? I am new to the blogging world and really want to establish myself as a top blogger.

    @Josh Thanks for your comments! I too found Holly’s video awesome. When it comes to starting a blog, you may notice that the ‘top’ bloggers are usually also experts within their niche or specific field. My suggestion would be to find your niche – what you’re good at, what you know, and the skills/expertise you can offer and develop. Then, conduct your own personal environmental scan about who are the players in your vertical. If you are just starting out, I also recommend that you develop this into your personal brand – but at the same time, be yourself. It’s a delicate balance. Feel free to email me, as I’d love to continue the conversation! For a quick reference, Chris Brogan released put together a free e-book on personal branding found here:
