"So, tell me about yourself." Trick question! Don't wing it. Whether you're trying to flash your most colorful feathers and attract the best mate on dating sites via an online profile or your goal is to land that perfect-for-you job, you've gotta have a plan of action when it comes to sharing your narrative. In this class, you'll learn how to wrap up your story in a pretty, little package and be ready to present it in any context.
After rooting ourselves in 1. why this skill even matters (hint: it'll help you get what you want...in any scenario!), we'll dive into 2. the principles of storytelling and interviewing (you'll identify what you want to be known for, what your goals are, and who your audience is), and, finally, you'll get the chance to 3. exhibit the qualities of a good story by pulling your thoughts together, practicing with the group, and walking away with actionable feedback.
CLASS PREP: 1. Please bring a recent version of your resume, online dating profile, job application, or any other self-summary of sorts that you'd like to edit/reinvent/etc. 2. Complete this Elevator Pitch Builder exercise designed by Harvard Business School and bring your results: http://www.alumni.hbs.edu/careers/pitch/.
