Presentation

"How To Tell A Good Story"

One of the most important parts of an interview occurs when the interviewer says, “Tell me more about how you were able to…” At this point you will need to offer specific details about your accomplishments. How do you tell your story so that it is succinct, interesting, and relevant to the company’s needs? In this interactive presentation we’ll examine sample accomplishments from a variety of resumes, and, using the acronym S.O.A.R, I’ll describe how to briefly embellish on your accomplishments and effectively relate your story. I’ll talk about the components of a good story, the types of words to use, and the role of body language and tone of voice. Bring a copy of your resume in order to work on embellishing one of your own accomplishments. See you on June 26, 2018.
