But I have some friends on Facebook who should probably edit their profiles for a number of reasons, and not just for job searching purposes.

In the month since TalentEgg’s launched, the most prevalent ‘buzz word’ I find coming out of my mouth is personal branding. I’m a major advocate of it and when you’re graduating from university, it is absolutely essential to package yourself as a brand. It is incredibly effective to portray to employers that you have a set of values, a purpose and a clear vision of what you want to achieve.
