The Personal Brand V.A.L.U.E. Career Development Tool: A Multi-Perspective and Interdisciplinary Framework
Ray Sylvester (Indiana University, USA) and William E. Donald (University of Southampton, UK & Ronin Institute, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-7442-6.ch013
Abstract
The chapter provides insights into the ubiquitous term personal branding in the context of establishing a career development tool for university students and graduates. The chapter begins with an overview of branding and personal branding before offering an integrated theoretical framework drawing together branding and career theories. Next, the authors present the ‘personal brand V.A.L.U.E.' career development tool (diagrammatically expressed using a purpose-driven Venn diagram) for career counselors to use with university students and graduates. The tool was developed by the lead author and contextualized into the career space in collaboration with the second author. The V.A.L.U.E. acronym stands for (i) vision, (ii) ability, (iii) love, (iv) understanding, and (v) ecosystem. A critical sequence of five questions enables students and clients to inculcate their own specific and individual intra-personal and inter-personal brand V.A.L.U.E. to establish an authentic career development plan and respond to evolving labor markets.

Integrating Ecosystem Management and Environmental Media for Public Policy on Public Health and Safety
A system refers to a collection of independent parts or events that make up a whole. Each part has a specific function, even though the expression of their roles depends on the proper functioning of all the other parts. The whole system fails to function without input from outside the system which acts to produce some output. Ecosystems combine biological communities and the physical environments associated with them in which nutrients and energy move through in loops or cycles. In other words, ecosystem is the interacting system of a biological community and its environmental surroundings.
