Younger Workers Need a Career Narrative

Younger Workers Need a Career Narrative | Online Trust, Reputation and Values |
Here's how to build one.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Anyone building a career will benefit from this article. Our narrative changes over time, but we all have stories to tell.  

Sharilee Swaity's curator insight, February 24, 2013 10:38 AM

Article is focused on having a career story in the workforce, but the same concepts apply to someone who is doing freelancing, and trying to sell themselves to potential clients. Great information!

I am repeating Karen Dietz's insights from below, says it all for me...


Hey -- we ALL need a career narrative! And it is a story that continually shifts and changes over time as we add experience, wisdom, and talent.


I really like this article because it explains exactly what a career narrative is, why we need one, and how to create it.


And there are great examples shared.


I particulary like the point that a career narrative -- or bio or 'About' page -- needs to meaningfully link your past successes with your near + long term goals, AND suggest the kinds of assignments that would help you achieve those goals.


If you have difficulty sharing the story of your career journey, if you need a better bio or 'About' page, then use these tips and examples to craft a better story!

Where the Values Meet the Tarmac

Where the Values Meet the Tarmac | Online Trust, Reputation and Values |
Bean told me something that I took to heart: " If your top priority (value) is in the top 10 of the organization you are working in, stay with it. If not, time for a change."  

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This story has been rattling around in my memory closet for years. My work on values congruency with Annette Schleming help bring this out. I'm proud to share this with you all. 

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, January 29, 2013 7:46 PM

Powerful testimony about value congruency and a journey well traveled. Dennis hits it right we he states "If you find congruency, stay put. If not; change the culture of your workplace, or change your work place." Sage advice. 


Knowing your core values, and having the skill to assess the practiced values in your work environment, will result in a more significant and possitive difference in work attitudens and performance.


Thanks for your openness and honesty Dennis!
