Are you wondering how to improve your clients’ ability to survive in a world where they will always be searching for their next opportunity? Clients need to communicate stories that help others understand their value. In employment interviews, they will be asked questions such as “What is your experience?” or “What do you have to offer?” Our clients also need concise language they can use in their marketing materials (resumes, letters, social media profiles, etc.). As the world of work has changed; the majority of opportunities are “gigs,” short-term work arrangements. This new reality requires individuals to engage in their career marketing on an ongoing basis.

In this practical workshop, you will learn to:
  • Use stories (narrative approaches) to guide your clients in their career marketing
  • Practice eliciting stories to identify unique strengths, characteristics, and relationships
  • Leverage these elements to coach your clients to develop creative marketing strategies to find gigs throughout their career
