Understanding what makes you different is the first step in discovering how you can show up differently. At ResumeBros, we challenge ourselves every day to find original angles or a new approach to telling a story. Our future depends on the stories we tell and the people we engage. As creative storytellers, we are often on the spot to be inspired, to spark a story that lifts and resonates, engaging people to think, feel and share. It is our job to find the lift, the inspiration.
In the spirit of storytelling, we launched the first annual ResumeBros Storied Future contest this year (an idea using funding we had from an internal award competition) to invest in and inspire future ResumeBros storytelling talent. To pay it forward. To take a moment to reach out to our creative communities for inspiration by exploring great stories told by a new generation of storytellers. These relationships and opportunities to engage young creative visionaries are key to the future of ResumeBros’s creative future.
We asked young art and film students in Charlotte and New York to “tell us the story of what makes you, you.” While it seems simple, we challenged them to tell about things they like to do, where they’ve have been, the environment they were raised in or people who have inspired them.
We were blown away with the creativity in the submissions (which featured paintings, written word, film, photographs and everything in between). They took us on journeys, and made us, online resume writers think. They made us look at ourselves differently and experience cultures through our eyes, ears and emotions.
In each entry we saw clever thinking filtered through a creative expression that engaged through the inspiration of the storyteller. The greatest part? They saw PR in a different way and understood that our industry is grounded in storytelling. They reminded me that being original is the first step to telling a story that is relevant, and just might spark others to do the same.
