"And There I Was…: A Storytelling Approach in Job Interviewing"
Stories are very powerful. Humans connect, learn, persuade, entertain, and inform through stories. Stories are how we remember; we tend to forget lists and bullet points. Join us for a workshop designed to help take advantage of the power of storytelling in the context of job interviews, résumé building, and career counseling.
First we will discover the surprising method that the US Government hires its top executives (hint: it involves storytelling). Next we will explore the Challenge-Context-Action-Result model, which is designed to help job seekers craft meaningful and relevant stories to use in résumés and job interviews. Finally, we will participate in a hands on exercise making use of the model. Participants will be provided a useful set of tools for consultations.
