With the job market more competitive than ever, standing out in a long line of candidates can be a real challenge. That’s why personal branding is so important to your job search. Specifically, you need a personal logo as outlined in this post by Company Folders.

One of the most effective personal logos is a monogram logo, which uses your initials in a stylized design. This creates a small yet unique piece that you can use consistently across your cover letter, resume, and work samples. Print it on pocket folders or binders if you use them to organize materials you will distribute during the job interview. You’ll make a great professional impression, and the hiring manager will recognize your application right away.

Best of all, a personal logo shows who you are without wasting valuable space in your resume to tell the interviewer about yourself. Your choices of color, size, and font all speak to your personal style. And since it’s made up of your initials, it will help the hiring manager remember your name. 

The graphic below will show you 31 ways to turn your initials into a monogram logo you can be proud of. Here are a few ideas:

• Blended shared vertical strokes
• Connected middle crossbars
• Manipulated white space
• Removed strokes
• Mirrored letters
• Cropped letters
• Unbroken lines
• Handwritten
• Interlocked
