Storify Your Resume - Deepstash

Storify Your Resume

Instead of spilling words with no head or tell, try to incorporate compelling before-and-after stories in your resume.

Your Hero's Journey can include your earlier companies (when you were a fresher), the challenges you faced and how you overcame them. You can add how the organizations are better because of you and can elaborate when needed, using bullet points.

What is a personal brand statement?

Personal branding is a strategy that creative professionals can use to stand out from the crowd and be recognized in their field. A strong personal brand statement will help you rise above your competition because it instantly gives people an idea of who you are, what you do, and why others should hire you. 

The overarching goal of a personal branding campaign is to provide information about who we are and tell the story behind our products and services.

The Right Narrative

Storytelling has always been a powerful, influencing tool since ancient times.

Crafting a good story around yourself is a great way to make anyone feel better about you. If we simply voice out our opinions, it sounds polarizing instead of persuasive, and if we really want to tug at the other person’s heartstrings and change their mind, we need to weave an engaging narrative.
