Instead of CVs and resumes being a tally 📏, how can we think differently about CVs and resumes to get an extra career boost out of them?
Lately, we’ve tried:
Using these documents as self-assessment tools to encourage positive self-evaluation
Crafting our own job titles and definitions of ourselves so they reflect our motivations rather than the tasks we perform for a paycheck
Two tips to shift the way you present yourself in just a few minutes:
For no less than 2 min: write down all the motivation words you can think of for why you hold your current position (don’t stop until your timer goes off!) ⏳
Build your own job title; make it reflect your word cloud better than the job description title you’ve been assigned by your employer 🏆
Knowing your “why” is adjacent to setting attainable, measurable goals and will set you up to productively work more on this later.
