Your Story


“So, What are you going to do with THAT major?”

Your major is important, but it doesn’t by itself convey who you are, what motivates you, and what you can offer. That means that the responsibility is on YOU to tell a compelling story that translates your major to professional potential. Stories are the way we truly connect with others, and connections are essential for job search. They are also the way employers assess your fit for their organization.

Here’s the good news: Anyone can learn how to tell that story. In this series you will follow a step-by-step guide to develop a unique, compelling story that will give your listener a reason to help you--or hire you! 



  • Use your story to apply to specific C21 programming, like the C21@Amazon and C21@Microsoft Externship programs or C21 Bootcamp
  • Put your story in LinkedIn and join a community of professionally-minded Arts & Sciences students to learn how to improve your profile and leverage LinkedIn for career and networking opportunities;
  • Put your story immediately to use in interviews, networking events, or anyplace where you’ll have to talk about yourself!
