Storytelling: The Key to Success

On display January & February 2019 in Rose Library. Curated by Elizabeth Price.

A good story isn’t just required for tucking kids into bed. Engaging your audience’s attention and emotions through personal stories can help you land the job, advance your career, or secure funding for a project. These resources will help you hone your storytelling skills in order to communicate your career interests and accomplishments.
