Storytelling As A Resume Strategy | Tim’s Strategy™

April 26th, 2011

“I have never met a boring person, but from time to time I’ve failed to ask the right question.”

Spend some time in a networking event, and chances are that the people who you will remember most are the ones with whom you exchanged stories. Hiring managers will tell you after a day of interviewing candidates, the ones who stood out were the ones who had an interesting story to tell.

Good marketing is good storytelling. And a job search is all about good marketing. But if you wait for the interview to tell your stories, you may be missing an important opportunity to distinguish yourself from the crowd. Stories, when told in the right way, to the right audience, can be a terrific resume differentiator, the key to standing out in a pool of qualified candidates.

So, what are the critical success factors to making a story-telling strategy work? Find out on my guest blog post on Tim’s Strategy: Ideas for Job Search, Career and Life
