Your major is important, but how does it convey who you are, what motivates you, and what you can offer?
Learn how to tell 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!
The question ”Tell me about yourself” might seem like just an icebreaker, but really it has an important purpose. It’s a signal to tell a concise and compelling self-story to give your listener a reason to help you--or hire you! In this module you will develop a self-story in a step-by-step format that you can use in interviews, networking events, or on Linked-In.
Use your self-story to give your LinkedIn page the "wow" factor. Completing this module successfully will earn you membership to our C21 LinkedIn community page where you can network and share resources with other career-minded A&S students. Even if you haven't started a LinkedIn profile, this module will show you how to begin.
