Monday Motivation | Are You a Good Storyteller?

Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!

Tip of the week

In a busy, competitive job market, it’s common to hear that we must always be objective. Applications should take advantage of bullet points, numbers, and facts, that’s true. That doesn’t mean, however, that they have to be boring. The way you talk about this data is also important to make sure you capture the attention of recruiters. Practice telling concise stories with a beginning, middle, and end that highlight relevant aspects of your career. Not sure where to begin? Here are a few tips from the Columbia University School of Professional Studies.
