Don’t Forget to Prepare This Before Your Next Interview

March 7, 2019

Career Advice

Your interview prep probably looks like this: research the organization then drill a bunch of common interview questions. Right? But here’s one thing that you absolutely have to prepare. It must be rock solid. What is it? Your story.

Your career chronology is important. Form a narrative around it. How did you get here? What inspired you? Why did you make that jump? How did you climb the ranks? What are those holes? How did you make change? What was your biggest achievement? Where would you like to go next? Paint a picture with examples, details, numbers, references, and more.

Regardless of what your story is, make it consistent and clear and purposeful. This is your chance to show how you’ve progressed throughout your career, what your interests are fueling your career, and what your goals are. This kind of direction and purpose will further define you as a quality candidate for hire.
