"You the Product" - How can YOU become a more attractive “product” to potential employers? While you might not think of yourself as a product, aren't you trying to differentiate your "service offering" from those of your competition?  What techniques can you learn from manufacturers who differentiate their products on a daily basis?

 This engaging presentation explores the idea by identifying key influences of the purchasing decision - and specific actions manufacturers take across these dimensions:
  • Product Life
  • Customer Service
  • Research and Development
  • Marketing - Advertising
Once identified, the focus turns to how an individual can implement these techniques - along with ACTIONABLE steps you can start taking now - to begin the journey of becoming a more attractive “product”.
