always told) was over, Write to Megan McCluskey at megan." Of course, Then." and see where the conversation takes you from there 2 Tell an Anecdote About Your Job Narrative is always compelling It helps us make connections A study out of Princeton University found that the brain activity of the storyteller and the listener actually begin to mirror each other despite the fact that one person is talking and one is listening And best of all to solve the "What do you do" problem you get to provide context for the person youre talking to instead of relying on the picture they have in their minds of what you do When implementing this strategy you might have to use your job title as a segue but transition immediately into a story about something that was fun or inspiring to you at work For example at a recent party I told someone I was a communications consultant but then followed up with a story about a client that offered context for my work and illustrated the need in the market for what I do 3 Make it a Teachable Moment Think about your answer in this light: You are educating the other person on the subject of you So instead of just saying your title explain something he or she might not know about your work or industry Talk about the void in the market that you are filling Talk about the latest thing happening in your industry Talk about the most interesting thing youve learned lately 4 Be Vulnerable Dont be afraid to get personal and talk about your journey What led you to where you are today What are your dreams for the next phase of your career Every conversation is building a relationship To do this effectively you need to let people behind the curtain even just a little so they understand where you are coming from 5 Be Relevant Its not all about you even when it is Relay the details about you and your work that are relevant to the person youre talking to The client whose story I told at the party was also finishing up successful rehab after a car accident and as I told it I saw the cardiac rehab therapists face light up with recognition Think about what experiences you have that will resonate with the people youre talking to or be able to help them out in some way 6 Let Your Freak Flag Fly Find something about what you do that really lights you up and focus on that When you show how enthusiastic you are about something you are a magnet People actually really want to be around that Dont let anyone tell you to take a chill pill Ever 7 Be Self-Promotional We need to rebrand self-promotion We need more people who can speak frankly about the value they bring to the clients and organizations with which they work Wouldnt the world be a better place if everyone just let down the veil and really opened about what they are good at More people would be doing things they love We would collectively be happier So dont be shy Youre actually doing everyone a favor by being honest about what youre good at and what lights you up And you can plainly see how much better that is than saying "Im an accountant" the next time someone asks "What do you do" may forever be synonymous with "Who are you" but with one of these alternative answers you have a say in who you get to be in the mind of the person youre talking with More from The Muse: Contact us at editors@timecomA caravan of migrants mostly from Central America arrived at the US-Mexico border on Sunday but were not granted entry due to a lack of space according to US officials US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in a statement that the San Ysidro port of entry is currently at capacity and therefore officers are unable to process migrants who lack documentation “As sufficient space and resources become available CBP officers will be able to take additional individuals into the port for processing” the statement reads “CBP will communicate with Mexican authorities for operational awareness on this issue of capacity within CBP facilities as appropriate” For weeks a group of migrants has traveled up through Mexico and toward the US border led by the humanitarian aid group Pueblos Sin Fronteras At its peak the caravan was made up of over 1200 people most were from Honduras and were fleeing violence and political unrest according to BuzzFeed News The trek has been billed as refugee caravan and many on the migrants have told news outlets they hope to seek asylum in the US But they are not likely to be welcomed with open arms by federal officials Reports of the caravan sparked outrage from President Donald Trump who unleashed a flurry of tweets denouncing the travelers and calling on the Mexican government to intervene before they reached the US “We need a wall number one” Trump said on Monday noting that National Guard troops had also been deployed in the border states “We need a change in the law” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has continued to urge the travelers to seek asylum elsewhere"Individuals of the ‘caravan’ seeking asylum or other similar claims should seek protections in the first safe country they enter including Mexico” Nielsen said in a statement last week She also warned migrants that entering illegally and making a “false immigration claim” is against the law “If you enter our country illegally you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution” the statement reads “If you make a false immigration claim you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution” But many of the migrants traveling are undeterred and dozens continued on the journey that ended at the US-Mexico border on Sunday According
