Let Me Tell You “About Me” - Seven Story Learning

Let Me Tell You “About Me” - Seven Story Learning | The JobHunting Toolkit | Scoop.it

"Why the story on your about me page matters and how to improve it. Guest post by Daniel McInerny, The Comic Muse.

 

My passion is to help businesses and organizations tell their stories. I am an author of fiction for both children and adults. I spend my days immersed in storytelling.

 

So why does my “About Me” page stink on ice?

 

It’s not an official about.me page. My “About Me” page is found via the “Hello!” tab on my navigation bar. Although I’m currently working on a much more effective “About Me” presentation, I’m going to leave this one up for awhile so that you can make a meticulous study of its multitudinous awfulness.

 

What’s so awful about it?"
