I have a question concerning consolidating my federal loans. I have some that are subsidized and some that are unsubsidized. Can I combine these at a lower interest rate? I have graduated from college and will soon be starting to pay back my loans. My unsubsidized loans are at 6.8% and subsidized are at 5.5%. I also have many DEAL loans, a total of $25,000.

Personal branding means you differentiate yourself from the mass of humanity. Branding can impact everyone regardless of age, race, gender or occupation. According to a Forbes Magazine article by Carol Goman, Author of The Silent Language of Leaders, we only have 7 seconds to make a first impression. Thus, the first 7 seconds are crucial because your personal brand is your ticket to opportunities.
To help get you cruising down the path of opportunity, here are Natascha’s 5 Tips (areas) to creating a crisp personal brand:
3. Communication (Grammar, Verbal-30 second pitch, Attitude, Eye Contact, Posture, Hand Shake),
4. Reputation (What stands out about you? Ask friends/family/Co-workers),
5. Online (Where is your online presence? Social Media, Website, LinkedIn, Google, and Portfolio. No online presence? Make one!)
According to common wisdom “Perception is Reality”, so use these tips to check the effectiveness of your personal brand. Review and improve each of these five categories, and if you discover that your brand needs assistance, then reach out to the Career Coach for the tools to get you started.
