Alumni, Current Students

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

Date: Tuesday, October 6
Time: 4:00 p.m. EDT
