Telling Your Story in Job Interviews

Telling Your Story in Job Interviews

I was recently asked to speak to a group of job seekers about telling their stories during job interviews.  I’m a storyteller myself, so I loved exploring this topic.  I’ve always enjoyed the recruitment part of HR because the interview process is all about hearing stories from candidates.  I’ve conducted many interviews over the years, and I’ve heard stories that have stuck with me long after the interview was done, so I know how important it is to tell a good story during a job interview.
