Whenever you are looking for a job, you need to tell your story. Who are you? What are you good at? What have you achieved? What is your value to a potential employer? Your story will take different forms: a branding story, your resume and LinkedIn profile, and of course, whatever you say about yourself when you are networking or interviewing. Accordingly, the way you tell your story will differ, but your message must be both clear and consistent.
In this presentation, Arnie Fertig talks about the role of storytelling in job hunting and how you can learn to understand and communicate your own story in a way that will engage your audience.
Key Benefits of the presentation:
- The elements of all great job hunting stories
