Share Your WorkStory
Whether it be video or text, your story should help someone else decide if they might like the type of work you do. Some ideas for your WorkStory are below - but they are not a script! Just try to tell other people why they might like your job. Tip: You can write or record your WorkStory yourself, or you can request one of our WorkStory writers to tell your story for you!
