How to Use Your Failures to Market Yourself

About the class

Throughout our careers, we will experience a volatile nature of highs and lows. The highs represent the positive experiences such as the promotions, raises, and achievements that we have obtained throughout our careers. The lows represent the missed deadlines, failed deals, demotion, and termination that we have endured throughout our careers. In this career rollercoaster, we are constantly answering the following question: Who gets the credit when things go well? Who gets the blame when things go wrong?

We constantly promote our achievements but rarely spend time addressing the lessons learned from our failures, let alone draw inspiration from them. Although we love to focus on our career highlights, there are some valuable lessons we can use to cultivate a productive career through our failure. As we continue to learn from our mistakes, we can use these lessons as a promotional tool to market ourselves. In this webinar, we plan to explore different ways we can market ourselves. By the end of our discussion, we will:

1. Understand what is a rejection resume

- Define a rejection resume

- Traditional resume vs. Rejection Resume

- How to Write a Rejection resume

2. How to Use a rejection resume

- You can use the rejection resume to market yourself (LinkedIn)

- You can use this rejection resume to find better opportunities (job search)

- You can use this rejection resume as a 1-2 page ledge to organize your strengths/weaknesses
