Make them Listen:How to establish yourself as an expert
The key to creating a name for yourself is in knowing how to market your expertise. Below are some activities to consider, plus a sample sentence showing how you can incorporate the experience in your resume.
Public seminars. Put together a list of topics and then contact local organizations, non-profit groups, and community colleges to offer a lecture. Get media coverage by sending press releases to local newspapers and cable TV channels. Example: As a public speaker, I single-handedly conceptualized, developed, and presented a two-hour workshop called “The Art of Money Management.”
Join the local Chamber of Commerce. This will identify you as a legitimate business person and will open doors to publication markets, seminars, and marketing. Example: As an active member of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, I am involved in decision-making forums and community projects.
