We Are a Brand
“Since we were kids, Gen Z has had personal brands…We've already had our own brand or what I call the “NarcisStory” by the time that you hire us. So, this presents a really big challenge for employers who don't recognize that Gen Z is not just an employee, we're actually a brand.” --- Hannah Williams
When it comes to job hunting, Gen Z is not just looking for a paycheck. They are looking for a company that aligns with their brand, image, and online presence.

The concept of NarcisStory is so integral to Gen Z.

The NarcisStory exists because Gen Z’rs have been given an incredible opportunity to create and pave our own pathways from a very early age.

It's a reflection of how Gen Z’rs are living their lives.
