How journalists can build powerful brands

Editor’s note: Unfortunately, this chat has been postponed. We are rescheduling it and will update this post once we’ve determined a new date.

In today’s career chat, we’ll talk with Dan Schawbel, author of the just-published, “Promote Yourself: The New Rules For Career Success.” Schawbel is also author of “Me 2.0″ and founder of Millennial Branding, a Gen-Y research and management consulting firm.

From 3 to 4 p.m. ET, we will talk about what a career brand is — and is not — and how journalists can develop brands that make them unique in the marketplace. Strong journalistic brands do for people what they do companies; they lead to greater reach and opportunity.

Twitter users can ask questions ahead of time using the hashtag #poynterchats. You can revisit this page at any time to replay the chat after it has ended.
