Personal Brand Week Your name is just the start.


Personal Brand Week


In today’s competitive environment, students need a way to differentiate themselves from their peers. They need an “X” factor that makes them indispensable. In short, they need a personal brand. Personal branding can be a powerful tool for professional success. Personal branding is not simply a cosmetic exercise but instead a process that helps to develop skills that increase the potential of standing out in the crowded job market. As one of the largest employers of college graduates in the United States, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) has unique insights into what makes students stand out. But we’re not keeping those insights to ourselves. In February 2010, PwC launched Personal Brand Week and dedicated each day to a different theme. The response from across the country was overwhelmingly positive. And now we’re taking it one step further and sharing the best personal branding tips and worksheets with you in this e-book. Take time to read through the materials. Leverage the tips in everyday interactions. Use the worksheets to become more aware of the skills that make you different. And importantly, take actions each day that build the personal and professional skills to create your unique personal brand. We hope that you find the materials as useful as other students across the country. And, as always, we welcome your feedback. Please visit us at to add your thoughts and comments. Kind regards,
