Who Are You?

Far more people listen to Tori Johnson than read this blog, but she and I are on the same page when it comes to career advice.

On “Good Morning America” today, her advice for looking for a job included that networking should be about who you are and what your talents are, not be defined by your job – past or present. In other words, people will hear you when you say you are a sustainability expert and tune you out when you introduce yourself as the CSO of XYZ Corporation.

In my case, I am, at my core, a writer. I am also the CEO of The Oliver/Sorano Group, and the Founder & Principal of Atlanta Women in Business, but that’s not what draws people in need of my services to me. “Writer” does.

So, who are you?
