How to Become Memorable

Here’s an interesting slide show that shows you what you can do to become memorable.

All ten suggestions are solid career advice, but I particularly like number 7 — be helpful.

When I meet someone new, I always think “how can I help this person?”  Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.  I mentor students at the University of Denver.  One of my mentees is working on an app that will help connect doctors and patients.  The other day I was on campus and saw a flyer for the Health Care Club.  I made a note of the information on the flyer and got in touch with my mentee to tell her about it.  This was a small thing for me to do that took virtually none of my time — yet it was helpful to her.

You can do this at networking events.  When you meet someone new ask yourself who you know that this person should know — based on interests, jobs, geography etc.  You will stand out — be more memorable — if you take the time to help other people, even in a small way like and introduction.

Your career mentor,
