Las Vegas, NV, March 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Almost 2 million U.S. college students will graduate this spring, but – according to a study by NACE – less than 20% of them will have found a job by the date of their graduation. In her new book, How YOU™ Are Like Shampoo for College Graduates: The Complete Personal Branding System to Define, Position, and Market Yourself and Land a Job You Love, author Brenda Bence provides college students with a comprehensive guide to using personal branding for a successful job search.
The third book in Bence’s award-winning personal branding series, How YOU™ Are Like Shampoo for College Graduates was released internationally on March 1, 2010. The book is the first practical, step-by-step personal branding system designed specifically for job-seeking college grads.
In her 25-year career as an international branding expert, Bence has helped build some of the world’s most recognizable brands, including Pantene, Head & Shoulders, and Vidal Sassoon. Bence’s personal branding system – based on the same marketing methods that have been used successfully for years to build popular name brands – helps college grads cut through the pool of other job applicants to become the ‘brand of choice’ for potential employers.
How YOU™ Are Like Shampoo for College Graduates shows college students how to:
· Discover the 6 personal branding secrets other grads don’t know
· Master the 5 activities that best communicate a great college graduate personal brand
· Avoid the Top 20 College Grad Personal Brand Busters® that recruiters hate
· Unleash the power of social media to find the right job faster

Bence’s second book in her personal branding series, How YOU™ Are Like Shampoo for Job Seekers: The Proven Personal Branding System to Help You Succeed in Any Interview and Secure the Job of Your Dreams, won the Grand Prize-Author of the Year Award in the 2009 Best Beach Book Festival.
