Marketing yourself 为自己制定营销计划
Marketing means to sell a product successfully, while marketing yourself states the same as selling yourself. Convince an employer of your skills and qualities. To do this you need a strategic and personalized marketing plan that throws the spotlight on your employability. In effect, you have to develop a walking, talking advertisement of yourself-one that says "you need me".
good habits 养成良好的习惯
Whether you are in your final or penultimate year of studies at undergraduate or postgraduate level, you can generate opportunities through actively and positively affecting others in your day-to-day life. Making a good first impression with everyone you meet is a good habit to get into, so start today.
First impressions 建立良好的第一印象
How long does it take for you to form an opinion of someone you meet? First impressions can have an instant and lasting impact.
Remember that others can quickly form judgments about you based on first impressions. Having the ability to make eye contact and to shake hands firmly, speak clearly and dress in professional business attire, will score big points right from day one.
