The Product of You

By Sarah Doody

To be published: 2025

Creative and tech professionals are passionate about applying design and creativity to creating products and solving other people’s problems. But there’s an unknown irony that holds them back – they fail to apply their creative and technical muscles (eg. storytelling, problem solving, critical thinking, research, writing, design, etc) to address problems in their careers. For example, designers often overly design their resume and fail to consider the person who’s actually reading it. Writers often get overly creative when writing their LinkedIn profile and resume, which can backfire as algorithms may surface their profile or application to recruiters and hiring managers.

As a result, many are stuck in unfulfilling jobs, aren’t paid what they’re worth, and lack the confidence to reach their full professional potential. In The Product of You, Sarah Doody teaches you how to have a more fulfilling and successful career by treating it as a designed product.
