Event Details

It has long been said that "the best predictor of future behavior is past performance."

No one gets a job offer by simply saying, "Sure, I can do that."

The interviewer wants to hear that the candidate has the experience and wants to be able to picture them filling a gap in their organization.

Preparing a pool of stories and being ready to share the right story for the right opportunity is the goal of this class. We will cover:


1. Storytelling 101:

    Elements of a story: Situation, Action, Result (SARs)

    What are success stories, where do they come from

    Developing success stories (Practical Exercise The 1st Story)

    A pool of success stories & 3X5 cards

 

 2. Where, when and how to use the success story:

    Giving the interviewer what they are looking for

 

3. The Rest of the Story :

    Using stories to relieve stress before the interview
