‘How your unique story can get you hired’ is an engaging and motivational TED talk by Aimée Eubanks Davis, founder and CEO of Braven. Braven is a platform offering “a scalable model empowering college students to put education to work,” and is a response to the stat that “only 25% of about 1.2 million low-income, first-generation college enrollees will attain a quality first job or go to graduate school.”
Aiming to maximize viewers’ potential while boosting confidence, Aimée Eubanks Davis speaks about the power of individuality in interview settings. The speaker suggests that many can second guess being qualified for certain roles, letting self doubt get in the way of their potential. She also goes on to encourage viewers to transform doubts and struggles to strengths by sharing stories unique to their life experience.
This engaging talk is part of TED’s Dropbox-sponsored Way We Work video series, offering “practical wisdom and insight into how we can adapt and thrive amid changing workplace conventions.”
