What’s Your Story? Using Narrative for Self-Promotion (October 29)

Perhaps the most important story you need to develop and tell is your own story—something that both defines you and helps others understand you. This means not only your professional biography—who you are and how you “came to be,” in a professional sense—but also stories about how you work and the ways you handle responsibilities and challenges. In the professional arena, you will want to tell your own story as it defines your work, your skills, your experience, and your goals. Stories can help you “sell yourself” better in certain circumstances, as well as gain a deeper understanding of your own professional narrative, your journey thus far, and your future pathways.

Bring a notebook for journaling, and ideas and questions to share.

Join the ACRL/NY New Librarians’ Discussion Group and Mentoring Program for an exploration of this topic and networking with colleagues! Refreshments will be served.
