Craft Your Compelling Career Story

Craft Your Compelling Career Story


Most of us have a rather disjointed career history. A series of jobs that often don’t seem to fit a clear pattern. Assuming other people will be able to make sense of your past is simply too much to expect. It’s up to you to align your past with your future and craft your compelling career story. Your career story first appears in your résumé. Then in your LinkedIn profile. Next, in your cover letter, how you introduce yourself, and in every interview.

“Craft Your Compelling Career Story,” a FREE session presented by Gary O’Neal, will help you:

  • Align your work history with your career path going forward
  • Create connections so others say “oh, that makes sense”
  • Demonstrate how your past leads to your present and future
  • Craft a Professional Summary that paints a picture in others’ minds
