Experiment #1: Write your Cover Letter
Present yourself, writing a letter like the ones which are attached to a resume when you apply for a job position.
Then, publish it to your collegues and work friends.
Ask therefore for a feedback to your collegues and friends: does it describe me effectively? How can I improve it?
- Learn (or re-learn) to describe yourself to others
- Reflect on your current professional career, on your job history so far.
- Think about your strengths, talents, skills.
- This public description of yourself will help you to gather honest and focused feedback from your collegues. For example if I write about me that "I do programming kata with my younger collegues every other day" but then actually I don't do that (for whatever reason), I want someone to tell me this.
