We created Backstory to enable you to connect your professional experiences, accomplishments, and aspirations to who you are as a person. In the few weeks since it launched, more than 75,000 members of our community have added their work experience, personal philosophies, and dream job locations to their page. We could not be happier with the response. In celebration of our 75,000th Backstory we’d like share some real life examples of how people are using Backstory.
As more people add Backstory to their pages, we want to highlight some of the diverse ways they’re using the tool. Some people are using Backstory to look for jobs or clients, show off their portfolios or simply give a more well rounded view of themselves, inspiring others to connect with them.
Cate Misczuk, in our header photo, is a great example of someone who is open to new opportunities and experiences. A journalist especially interested in the fields of Global Studies and Geography, she’s added a map to her Backstory to indicate that she’s open to jobs in Europe.
