Tell The Story of Your Career

When looking for new opportunities, how do you connect different jobs and work experience into coherent a narrative that makes sense and lands your dream job?

According to Forbes magazine today’s generation of professionals can expect to have 5 different careers in their lifetime. But transitioning from one industry to another, or looking for a new opportunity after being laid off, or reentering the job market after an absence, can be a hard to explain.

Increasingly what makes you different from the competition is your experience and personality. Your value proposition is connecting the needs of the employer to your values, life skills and passion.

In this workshop you’ll:


Learn the fundamentals of story and storytelling


Learn how to tell your compelling professional story that captures the attention of a prospective employer


Identify your key values and how they connect your personal experiences


How to reframe different stages of your life and how they have benefited and shaped your unique skill set and knowledge
