Job interviews are inherently stressful events that shine a spotlight on your ability to communicate. Increasingly, employers are asking behavioral questions on interviews as a way to make hiring recommendations. These questions require candidates to respond by telling stories. This workshop led by Nancy Goldman (Ed.D. ’11) will reveal how to create a well-constructed narrative that will increase your chances of standing out from the rest of the applicants. A story well told can influence a decision-maker: it demonstrates one’s ability to articulate, conveys one’s values and philosophy, and makes an emotional connection that can motivate and persuade.
As a result of this webinar you will be able to:
Identify 6 criteria that make an interview story effective
Employ the basic structure of an effective story
List the types of stories you should prepare before going on an interview
