The Stories We Tell

Kent Nolen

“I definitely don’t want to use bullet points; I really want my resume to tell my story.”

I want your resume to tell your story as well. In fact, I am passionate about it. But I also want your resume to get read. 

When telling your story on a resume or LinkedIn profile, it is critical to consider your platform. Just as it doesn’t make any sense to tweet a novel 140-characters at a time (although I am sure it’s being done!), it doesn’t make sense to create narrative-heavy, dense professional marketing documents. Doing so simply ignores the way readers will be consuming the information.

When it comes to telling your story on a resume, my best advice to always be aware of your audience, let your accomplishments do the work, and create plenty of curiosity gaps. That way you are more likely to get a chance to really tell your story in an interview.
