Nov-A-Decem-Blog-A-Thon: A-M-Y-Always Marketing Yourself

What is A-M-Y?

No, it's not a female name.

A-M-Y is simply an acronym for Always Marketing Yourself.

Why A-M-Y, or more specifically, why always market yourself?  Because when it comes to an ever competitive job market, where  the traditional 9-to-5 job has all but become a thing of the past, it's very important to always market yourself and your services.  That's especially the case whether you still have your current job, in between jobs after a lay off, or even fresh out of college looking for that first job, marketing yourself to potential employers is a must.

So, how do you do that?  You do it in a variety of ways, from traditional methods such as sending a resume to cover letter, to using social media networks like LinkedIn and Facebook, to networking at functions such as business expos, job fair, and even mixers.  Just simply use your imagination, and creativity.  You never know where it might lead you.
