My goal in this book has been to examine career stories to discover how they can apply to individuals’ efforts to enter organizations and to interact with organizational change in a fruitful way upon gaining entry.
Through detailed descriptions and many sample stories, I hope you’ve discovered the promise of incorporating tales of career accomplishment, especially your successful interaction with organizational change, into powerful communication that influences hiring managers. The evidence is clear that storytelling then propels your career by also enabling you to promote yourself, lead and communicate change, and interact successfully with change in your new workplace.
I hope you’ve begun to compose stories about yourself as you’ve read the book. Now is the time to take charge of your story and let your career story unfold.
I invite readers to contact me to share stories and ask questions about storytelling and careers. You can e-mail me and please also visit my blog, A Storied Career, as well as the Career Storytelling section of Quintessential Careers.
