I have seen several of my friends on linkedin have written a post about what they would write if they had to sum their CV on a pizza carton because they were homeless. The ultimate selling exercise. I saw so many inspiring tings, so much creativity. I quickly realized I wouldn't know what to write. I am horrible at selling my persona, I have spent the past 10 years in academia, pushing forth what I do, not who I am, which in the sum of things is equally important! I could only come up with one thing to write.
This is basically my response. I would just use my skill in psychology to read what people wanted to hear,and then tell them. an elaborate story for a small amount of money. Another post was about doing the same in 140 characters or less on Twitter i.e. summing up ones CV as short as possible. This is what I would write.
So basically I fail on these tasks, and really need to work on selling my persona, being clear and concise on who I am. In the meanwhile, I will (as shown above) find ways to survive.
