How to Use the Incredible Power of Storytelling to Land a New Job

Here’s a rare treat! ExecuNet’s master storyteller, Tony Vlahos, is on the other side of the mic! For years, Tony’s interviewed some of the world’s brightest minds in job search, career management, business, and leadership development. This time Renessa Boley Layne, founder of the Perfect Work Academy, turned the tables and interviewed Tony for his expertise on job search and career management.

To the surprise of no one, Tony proved to be as wonderful as a guest as he is as a host!

Their talk focused on leveraging your personal story, so that clients, customers, board of directors or hiring managers can’t help but be attracted to what you offer.

Here’s a breakdown of their conversation:

  • 04:15 What is “perfect work”
  • 05:49 In a professional sense, what is one’s “story” and how does it help you?
  • 09:38 Where is there room for inserting personal stories in professional setting?
  • 16:01 Leveraging a Bio to tell your story.
  • 19:18 Deciding how you want to be viewed in the marketplace.
  • 23:55 When we get rejection
  • 29:10 What keeps people from identifying their own story?
