    Lots of food for thought here on how we tell our own story. I think we often get caught up in the dramatic for better attention, but the negatives that perspective portrays don’t align with our true personality.
    I have had a lot of practice of late telling my story as I’ve continued looking for employment.
    I will keep these tips in mind as I continue to tell my story, and will aim to do it intentionally, thoughtfully and positively.
