The modern workforce is fiercely competitive. It's difficult to stand out, and if you're looking for your next role, you'll need ways to make yourself appear more credible, honest, and memorable than your competitors.
Recruiters may believe that their decisions are only based on reasoning, but their emotions play a significant influence as well. It's in our nature. Emotions influence how we feel about other people, and those feelings influence how we see them, whether positively or negatively. Telling a powerful story based on your CV, in your cover letter, and during your interview is the easiest way to arrive at the "positive" side of the equation.
“With the appropriate story, you can powerfully combine reasoning and emotion to stand out from the crowd.”
Stories have long been used to transmit information and instruction around the world. In the interview process, storytelling is a significant and successful strategy. Short, honest, and compelling anecdotes can help connect and engage a recruiter, influencing the recruiter to choose you.
Yes, being asked to relate a story during an interview might send you into panic mode. But there's one thing you should keep in mind: these suggestions are known as behavioral interview questions. You should respond to a precise question with the right amount of reasoning and emotion rather than launching into a long-winded discussion about something absolutely unrelated.
