Thanks for the conference... I have tried to create a personal brand creating communities around the embedded systems... I like share my knowledge with others for free... however I haven't had the traction of many people interested in learn the embedded systems... My principal language is Spanish... What you suggest that I can improve on it?

Great job Leandro! I admire your drive to create more awareness around embedded systems. It seems you've built a foundation already. I would like to learn more about you and what you've built so far, in order to give you more actionable tips. However, the next step could be that you need more traction (since you mentioned that's something you haven't got so far) I encourage you to reach out to industry experts to interview them, ask them for advice, hold live presentation to share your story and answer questions. You can also pair up with those who already have traction and partner up with them on presentation. I would like to discuss some possibilities with you, so please send me a message on LinkedIn and let's talk about potential collaborations. Lastly, my main language is English (I speak Farsi as well) but I have a lot of followers from the Latino community so it would be interesting to explore potential opportunities to grow that side of my network. Let's discuss more details together.

Great talk and your website branding is really impressive! Do you have any advice that would be different based on level of experience such as entry-level, first job transition, mid-career, later career, etc?

Thanks for your kind feedback and glad you enjoyed watching the presentation. The job search process is identical for professionals of all levels from recent grads to senior managers. The goal is to avoid getting lost in the online job ads market and instead take a proactive approach towards finding the right companies, contacting the right people, and having the right conversations.
