Applied Story Building for Careers (Free Webinar)

Applied Story Building for Careers

Friday 23rd June 2017, 13:00 – 14:00 GMT

Speaker - Joanne Markow, Co Founder of Green Mason (Boston, USA)


In working with people who are preparing for career changes, planning to interview, or looking to improve their jobtalk fluency, we felt there was a need for a natural emotional springboard to creating and telling stories.  But there aren't a lot of interactive tools to help job seekers practice with each other—or to help career advisers facilitate. This webinar will cover story boarding and other narrative approaches.

Why Learn JobTalk

Most young people today will have multiple careers spanning different industries and 15-20 jobs. That means hundreds of interviews. Or many more if they don't develop strong career skills.

Learning Outcomes

  • Applied storytelling benefits
  • Applied StoryBuilder Process
  • StoryBuilding architecture
  • Five steps to a better job-focused story
