Career Camp is five weeks of focused activities and structured feedback on the stories used in career interactions. Each week we will focus on a different story from the professional self-presentation genres (resume, “about us,” elevator pitches. etc.). Gear up for the New Year and be ready to hit the ground running with your jobsearch with a resume that blows their SOQs off, cover letters that speak to why THEY need you, and pocket examples that show the WHY of your work!


Testimonials:

Thinking in terms of stories was transformative for me. I’m definitely a convert to the notion of seeing the world in stories. Before Career Camp I’d been feeling stuck. I was uncomfortable and unsure about how to interact with LinkedIn. I didn’t enjoy researching organizations. This mini-course changed the way I look at those activities; when everything is a story, everything is data. Looking at data is fun, so looking at LinkedIn can be fun, too. I now feel less stressed and more productive as I explore and apply.

In the space of a month, with just a few hours of work each week, I learned as much useful information as I’ve learned in many a previous semester long class.  What surprised me most about Camp was how enjoyable it was to chat with other students (campers?) each week. How can a group video chat with strangers feel like a campfire with friends? I don’t know, but I liked it! I learned from other people’s stories, and felt supported in my career journey. I highly recommend this little digital bootcamp of career narratives to linguists and nonlinguistic alike!  Let Anna Marie introduce you to the wild world of stories!
