1. Define the 2-3 desirable, deliverable and differentiating points-of-difference you would like to establish for yourself in your business career in the long-run, this should capture your unique brand essence and positioning. In other words, in what ways can you be unique to other top-tier Undergraduates as your career progresses? What are the 1-2 key points-of-parity you will also need to negate any possible weaknesses?
2. What kinds of things will you need to do in the future that you are not doing now to achieve your desired positioning?
Be critical in terms of what this approach to your career does not consider/account for and the limitations of person branding.
