Everyone Has a Unique Personal Story to Tell
It’s the wise adage that has stood the test of time: “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
But it is not your shiny shoes or suit that will leave a lasting impression during your next job interview. As anyone in recruitment will tell you, it’s your story, how you tell it and the insights it offers into how you operate, that will linger long after your interview is over.
Every person has a unique story. Call it what you will—an elevator pitch, personal brand, what makes you stand out—it offers insights into your core skills, values and workplace behaviors. Your story is your brand, and it needs to be the hook that people remember long after you’ve left a room.
