Your Most Effective Self-Marketing Tool

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

Contrary to popular opinion, you should never rely solely on your résumé as you pursue a job search. Your “Job Seeker’s Tool Kit” should be filled with a variety of documents that will enable you to successfully market yourself with power and professionalism.

Of all the tools in your “Job Seeker’s Tool Kit,” the one that will “sell you best” is your Accomplishment Stories. Yes, these will market you even more effectively than the resume. Why? Because Accomplishment Stories state very specifically what positive things you have done for your previous or current employer, and therefore clearly indicate what you will be able to achieve for your NEW employer! So, if you’re not using this powerful tool in your search, you’re making a big mistake.

Accomplishment Stories should be written on separate pages (one story per sheet), following the structure shown below. Give a short title to each story, and type it at the top of each respective page. Make sure to use strong action verbs at the beginning of every sentence, and avoid passive-sounding phrases, such as “responsible for.” Write your Accomplishment Stories answering the questions below, in 5 distinct paragraphs. You’ll be TELLING these stories; not using them as handouts. So, you’ll want to commit the text to memory and practice delivering them!
