     Short stories were a staple of early-19th-century magazines and often led to fame and novel-length projects for
      their authors. More recently, short stories have been reprinted in anthologies , categorized by topic or critical
                                                         reception.

                                                  Creating Compelling Interview Stories
                                                                   By Barbara Safani



    During a job search, several tools and strategies can be used to weave together a compelling story
of your value to an employer. Resumes, interviews, and networking meetings should be rich with
memorable information about you and the problems you have solved for organizations. Your story
should be so good that the interviewer can't wait to repeat it to the next person in the hiring chain. Here
are some tips for making that happen.

1. Create an exciting resume that the reader just can't put down.

Don't just write about job tasks and don't just list statistics. Build a story around your accomplishments
that succinctly communicates the impact you had on an initiative or an organization as a whole.

2. Tell your story with pictures.

Try adding some charts or graphs to your resume to create a visual representation of your impact. For
example, if you increased sales 500% over a 5 year period, create a bar graph to show the year over
year growth.

3. Add your online stories as well.

LinkedIn, Plaxo, and Facebook profiles are a great way to let other people see who you are both
professionally and personally. If used properly, they can help build your credibility, authenticate your
passion, and show your human side. Blogging software (try WordPress or Typepad) and microblogging
(I like Twitter) can be leveraged quite effectively to create an online presence and voice and establish
yourself as an expert in a given area and an engaging storyteller.

4. Showcase samples of your work.

Bring examples of the types of reports, business communications, or design work you do to the
interview. Consider including links to websites, photographs, videos, or project prototypes to your
resume or portfolio when appropriate.

5. Answer interview questions using the Challenge-Action-Result story format.

Employers are interested in learning about your past successes because they feel that past successes
are a good indicator of future success. By describing the challenges you faced, the actions you took to
address those challenges, and the corresponding results for the organization, you are more likely to
create interest and excitement about your candidacy.

6. Ask questions that invite the interviewer to tell their story.

In order to build a strong rapport with the hiring authority, you need to share information. Asking the
interviewer to also share information helps deepen this relationship. Ask what issues the department is
struggling with and what types of strategies they have tried in the past to address these issues. Asking
questions shows your interest and concern for the company's problems and also positions you as the
right person to address them.
