Using CAR Statements and Stories to Effectively Market Yourself in a Career Search

Learning how to use CAR Statements and Stories effectively in the job search process will elevate your levels of success.  First you need to understand what CAR means.

The Challenge - a description of the challenge and context of the environment (who, what, where, when, how).

Action: a description of the specific Action(s) that you took in response to the challenge.  Highlight desirable traits without needing to state them (initiative, intelligence, dedication, leadership, understanding, etc.)  and specific constraint (eg deadlines, costs, other issues).

Result: a description of the result of your action(s).

In all cases, quantify the as much as possible.  Numbers give life and meaning to statements and stories.  They make information specific and measurable.
