In this workshop you will learn how to describe your experience, skills, and qualities in a more compelling way — through storytelling. Storytelling is one of the most powerful methods for conveying your brand and expertise in hard and soft skills and the impact you have.

Using the Circumstances — Actions- Results (CARs) method, you will craft a draft of your first story which will be useful in networking, preparing for interviews and as a way to describe outcome-oriented work experiences. This workshop will help you clearly and concisely develop CARs (Challenge, Action, Result) that describe your success stories.

In this workshop you will learn to:

  1. Create CARs that clearly demonstrate your value and that directly connect you with positive experiences that in turn boost your confidence.
  2. Create concise, digestible, memorable stories.
  3. Use the CARs stories as bullets on your resume and LinkedIn profiles.
