Rajesh Setty has just released a free 40-page e-book called Personal Branding For Technology Professionals. Including both concepts and workbook materials, he advocates developing a personal career strategy including some of the following lessons:

For those of you who don’t know his work, he is the Chairman of CIGNEX Technologies, Inc (a Silicon valley company he co-founded in late 2000), the author of a fabulous book Beyond Code, and a prolific blogger.
