About the Event
Ann graduated from UMass Lowell and joined a small software company. She was part of the technical support team. Ann is easy to work with and very responsive. After her manager left and joined an early stage start-up – she soon followed suit. After being there for 3-4 years, Ann doesn't see a path forward, and she is looking for a change.
Yesterday, Ann interviewed for a reputed tech company with a potential for steady growth. Her discussion with the recruiter went well. Tomorrow, she will be talking with the hiring manager. Ann spent a lot of time brushing up her technical skills. She is prepared to answer anything technical, but there seems to be something missing. She doesn't have an overall structure or a narrative. Ann is sure that there would be many other qualified candidates with sterling resumes. How can she present herself and differentiate over other candidates? How can she make an impression?
What story will she tell?
- Introductions 5 minutes
- The "Story Canvas" and how to build it. 20 minutes

What will we be doing in this workshop?
We'll share with you the essential concepts of "Story canvas". There will be some prompts and props for you to practice. Some homework, but not too much. Our goal is to make this fun and provide you with a tool to get ready for your next job interview quickly.
