The Three Stories Every Job Search Needs

Three stories you need to know & have in mind during your search.

Thrive invites voices from many spheres to share their perspectives on our Community platform. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and opinions expressed by Community contributors do not reflect the opinions of Thrive or its employees. More information on our Community guidelines is available here.

These are the three stories you need to know & have in mind during your search.

1. How you talk to yourself about the work you can do & your value. You can’t tell a great authentic story to a potential employer if you’re calling yourself a loser. Start by telling yourself how incredible you are & worthy of meaningful work.

2. You need to know what your career story through line is. This is consistent & shows up everywhere in your branding. You’ll have micro-stories in there too. It all leads to the same conclusion & brand about you & your work. You selectively show this story in person, on your resume, LinkedIn and on the job.

3. What story does your ideal company tell itself & others? And where do you fit in this story? They all need to be in alignment.
