Women are especially hesitant to boast about their professional accomplishments and avoid bragging for fear of being seen as pretentious. While a resume may tell of your work accomplishments and your strengths, a bio entails more than basic facts and should present your life story. Too often, bios sound like a broken record and are dull stories.
Put your best foot forward by crafting an impressive account that transforms your experiences into a powerful narrative proclaiming your achievements. Learn how to boast about your accomplishments without sounding conceited
Who should attend:
Women who want to project a strong image and highlight their accomplishments. If you use your biographical description frequently or are circulating your resume, this workshop is for you!
This workshop is limited to 15 women so that each participant may receive direct input from the instructors and walk out with complete content for her new bio.
