Telling Your Story in Job Interviews: Esther speaks with the American Marketing Association
Esther has often advised people to tell well-crafted, relevant stories during job interviews. It’s a way to illustrate your character and let employers know that your character as well as your qualifications makes you a great fit for the job.
Esther once gave this advice to Rissa Reddan, and during leadership storytelling coaching with Esther, Rissa practiced telling stories. Recently, Rissa was able to use this advice to get hired. Read her story and Esther’s thoughts on storytelling in interviews in this excellent in-depth article from the American Marketing Association.
