Try it out…and see how it works

You probably have bullet points in your CV. If not, write down a few.

Now, try to rewrite the same content in two or three paragraphs. Keep this format, but now tell a story with a clear beginning-middle-end structure. Do this exercise for emails, cover letters and everything else you have written with bullet points.

This might help you to engage with your audience instead of – unintentionally – ask to be ignored.

Try it out and see how it works. Why not?
