Top Of Home Positioning Word/Statement
If the prospective employer had a chance to see ONE WORD that best describes you, this is it!
Select from the drop-down choices, or... enter your own "super YOU descriptor" word.
Your Personal Story
This is where you get to pour it all out... or not. It's up to you. The objective would be to convey aspects of your life which will enhance your overall appeal. Here's a good way to lay it out:
Here are a few examples: Paragraph One: Tell us about your early life from your earliest memories to about age ten.
Paragraph One: Outline highlights from age 11 to around 16. Touch on things that you can tie directly to a strength. For example: Instead of just "I was on the swim team...", say something like "I was on the swim team and specialized in the relay race and came away with a great appreciation for teamwork."
Paragraph Three: Tell us about how you grew into an adult and what you can bring to the table as a result.
