How to Elevate Your Job Search & Career Through Storytelling

How to Elevate Your Job Search & Career Through Storytelling

“So, what’s your story?”

How well you answer this question, how well you’re able to distill what makes you special into laser-focused stories that SHOW instead of TELL, will determine how quickly your career rises. Don’t believe me?

Let’s say you’ve nabbed 30 minutes with the CEO of a dream company. Want to give yourself the BEST POSSIBLE chance of being remembered? Share a few stories you’ve developed beforehand that are custom-designed to quickly build rapport and highlight the unique pain you solve.

Want to conduct a covert job search, or drum up consulting work, or secure media/PR opportunities? You guessed it. A high-level approach that strategically deploys storytelling as the MAIN ENGINE of communicating unique value beats out all other approaches in quickly turning key decision-makers into allies. Long before ATS systems and assessment tests, before paper or the written word...there were people sharing stories. It’s time to harness this primal power.

In this highly interactive webinar presentation, Anish Majumdar, the Career Coach to the Fiercely Ambitious will share some of the secrets which have enabled his clients to tap into the “deep well” of storytelling…and emerge with offers that open thrilling new chapters in their careers.

You’ll learn:

  • The hidden DNA behind a great career story, and a way of looking at the “long tail” of your work history in a way that will allow you to identify, and structure, your best stories effectively.
  • How to unlock major value within your resume by reinventing your work history through the lens of a CAREER NARRATIVE. Randomness kills opportunities and earning potential- what you’re after now should be the LOGICAL NEXT STEP in your journey, not a leap of faith!
  • Anish’s APA FORMULA that will enable you to hit “gotcha!” interview questions like “What’s your biggest weakness” out of the park, and pivot the conversation to your personal domains of competence.
  • The secret levers you can pull to communicate deep affinity and culture fit. Nearly 50% of hiring managers say that culture fit is their NUMBER 1 priority in a candidate...ignore this at your peril!
  • How to use your stories to CLOSE opportunities. A professional brand which leverages your stories for maximum effect will do much of the first impression and credibility building for you. End result: you spend less time pitching, and more time closing.

Remember: as “just another candidate” you have many competitors. As the creator and champion of your own story, you have none. See you on the webinar!
