bret simmons Bret Simmons is the master mind behind all the content being created at the University of Nevada, Reno. Bret is a professor for the College of Business who teaches the Personal Branding class offered to both undergrads and master level students.  His class provides the necessary education to build a strong framework for a students’ personal brand.  As a student in the class, you actively participate in various social media platforms.  These platforms included Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress, Yelp, and various other sites which the student must create an account and actively participate in.

But the Personal Branding class isn’t just a class you’ll take and forget about.  Bret Simmons’ class is life changing and for some, may create a lifeline.  By building a personal brand on the various social media sites, many students are reporting positive feedback within their careers and personal lives.  Not only are they creating a strong digital footprint which positively reflects their brand, some students have been offered jobs via social media platforms.  The students who successfully complete the course will have created a professional image of themselves online while learning how to successfully navigate online.

Although some still believe social media is not necessary within the business world, Bret Simmons is proving reasons why it is imperative to participate in these platforms.  Various successful professionals and business owners share their stories from social media and what it has done for them.  Dr. Simmons is truly challenging the norm, and inspiring students to build their personal brand.
