Why is it important to think beyond the resume and build a compelling narrative and brand? I spoke at Wingate University and had the great pleasure of leading a workshop titled ‘Beyond the Resume - Be The Narrative’ for 40+ students.
During this workshop, I challenged students to think about their 'Why' before editing their resume and applying to different career opportunities. The reason? I've found that the most successful job search strategies are ones that are targeted to particular opportunities that match up to long-term career goals instead of casting a wide net.
This approach has helped dozens of clients that I've worked with land jobs at competitive firms.
