Arm Yourself with Anecdotes

According to Marky Stein, career coach and author of Fearless Interviewing: How to Win the Job by Communicating with Confidence, candidates should pick six skills that they have and want to pursue in their jobs, such as management, analysis, assembling, building, creating, directing. Then, write these “action verbs” each on an index card. On the other side of each card, write a few reminders of anecdotes about how you performed these skills successfully with bottom line implications to the job. “Hopefully, you have three anecdotes for each verb. When you go into the interview, you’re literally armed with an arsenal of 18 different little stories you can tell about doing those things,” she says.
