Tell me a Story

Literature majors love stories, right? We understand them, too: conflict, foreshadowing, catharsis, resolution... One strategy to writing a winning cover letter and resume is to think of these documents as a specialized form of story.

But what exactly does that mean? Of course it doesn't mean that you can march into an interview and proclaim "My mom told me when I was little that I was going to be great some day..." and then launch into a monologue about when the training wheels came off your bicycle.

So I've linked today to a collection of resources on storytelling and careers--connecting story and strategies for resumes, cover letters, personal branding, interviewing, and even the kinds of stories you tell yourself.
