The importance of personal branding in the job hunt will definitely be more important in the future as the society moves away from the current employer-employee relationship. Two reasons why the job hunt today is process driven and mindless;

1. The want of society to be 'branded' as part of an organization and not as an individual. A good example of this is the financial services industry where personal branding is neither evident or encouraged.

2. Much of society does not want to think about the big picture - it is more comforting to stick with their small picture mentalities.
