How To Build Career Kred Globally


Define yourself and your brand. You have to know what you want to be known for before others can know you for that. You have to understand your strengths, weaknesses, what matters to you and what you want. Your strengths and actions must align and point people toward getting known for that one thing.


Once you understand who you are and what you want to be known for, you need to start telling your story; how you show up online is where the story starts. When people search for you, the should see what you want them to see. Start taking steps to appear online in a manner that is consistent with how you want the world to see you. We live in a digital first world. Ryan states that 93% of recruiters and hiring managers have done an online search on you before they ever talk to you. If you’re not telling the story of what you want to be known for, you’ve got some work t to.


In the create step, you take control of your story by creating content that aligns with your area of expertise or what you want to be known for. The content may be written, auditory and/or visual. The process of creating this content online stacks up over time and search results begin to reflect your story.


The engage step helps you build trust with people who like what you have to say and at the same time, repel those who aren’t right for your message. Engagement can come in many forms whether it is social media, comments or email. The goal with engagement is to start building good will and trust in your message
