Storytelling in Interviews Without Dating Yourself

Finally! The big day. You have an interview this afternoon with a company that is looking for someone to head up their Northeast division. It’s exactly the type of opportunity you have been positioning yourself for and would really launch your career. It’s that next big step you’ve had your eye on. It’s what ExecuNet calls your Next Great Next.

Now you need to make sure they can see the value you can create and the difference you can make for them.

Listen to this video as two of our Career Strategists talk about how the key will be to story tell your past around 2-3 well-crafted stories that highlight the core value you have identified with your strategist. You’ll want more recent examples, but it’s wise to have ready a pattern of examples of what you want to demonstrate to them. That pattern should tap into your corporate past and even into your non-work experience.

It’s all about the preparation when you’re an executive in job search or thinking about possibilities for what comes next. If you’re a bit older you simply have more to shape, but that’s what’s exciting! You’ve earned the opportunity to have options, and now you get to become excited about your career once again.

If you’d like some help with articulating your work experience into one clear value story that you can share in a way that makes sense for hiring companies, our team of advisors, coaches and recruiters is unparalleled in the executive search industry. They will show you how to weave your unique value story together in all the right places – including but not limited to your resume, LinkedIn profile, networking efforts, and interview – to connect with target companies in an irresistible way or help you discover what your Next Great Next chapter/challenge/opportunity/project is going to be.
