Using the phone screen formula to help you become an effective storyteller will give you a leg up when looking for a new job.
When actively looking for a role, sometimes you throw your hat into many rings – just hoping that something good comes back. But if you aren’t ready for every single conversation, you could end up getting eliminated for roles that would be great for you – or even worse – come across as unfocused and unprepared.
This episode is to help you make sure that never happens. Here’s a little formula for how to think about preparing for every interview and the stories you want to share in order to demonstrate that you are a fit for the role.
- Review the job description and look for what you have done that is relevant. Make a few notes and prepare to share some examples.
- Go back and review it again – this time looking for your gaps of experience. How can you overcome those objections? Are the gaps things you can quickly learn?
- Review your positioning statement to make sure you’re coming out of the gate framing your experience with the most relevant information when describing who you are professionally.
A little preparation – and an awesome phone screen formula – will go a long way!
