About Project Storytelling
Project Storytelling is a powerful technique that helps to add dimensions and depth to your resume. Project stories bring out the things that make your career history interesting. A resume that simply lists the things that you produced and the technologies used is at best ordinary, and at worst boring. Your story is much more than technology and project deliverables. The interesting story is about the path taken to produce those deliverables. What were the challenges and how did you solve them? Who did you work with and what were the team dynamics? What stakeholders did you work with and what relationships did you build? What were the lessons learned and how did you share them with others?
Explore questions such as the examples above to bring out the interesting things that become the elements of an engaging and memorable resume. Telling your stories to a colleague, friend, or professional resume writer lets you know when your resume should show personality, people, process, pragmatism, innovation, and more.
