Writing Your Career Story: Why it Matters

In the 21st cen­tu­ry, blood, sweat, tears, and a diplo­ma are no longer enough for job suc­cess. Career research shows that in addi­tion to skills and apti­tudes, an under­stand­ing of what gives us a sense of mean­ing and direc­tion is essen­tial. We must learn about our­selves and cul­ti­vate an abil­i­ty to artic­u­late our sto­ries in order to find, keep and cre­ate our work. Nar­ra­tive career approach­es have been devel­oped to that end. Work toward your own career con­struc­tion” as you explore life and career themes through cre­ative, expres­sive, and reflec­tive writ­ing. Learn about the research that proves that fol­low­ing your bliss” is not just for poets. This course is suit­ed for career coun­sel­lors and coach­es, those work­ing in edu­ca­tion and Human Resource Devel­op­ment, or those in career tran­si­tions or aspir­ing to learn more about career development.
