When it comes to job interviewing, resumes and cover letters, you don’t want to just regurgitate a boring, chronological list of your work experience. Instead, use those three outlets as opportunities for you to tell your story. What’s your story? Ask yourself this question as you prep for your interviews. You’ll want to weave that story in to your conversations, resumes and cover letters in a way that connects the dots to the needs of the employer. I can help you with this in a one-on-one coaching session.
Since it helps to hear this stuff from a variety of voices, check out today’s video with lawyer-turned-community organizer Robert Hoo. Robert tells us that “what’s your story” is the first question you want to ask yourself when preparing for job interviews.
