Story Telling for Job Interviews

It’s always hard to know exactly what to say when you’re asked, “Tell us about your biggest weakness.” Do you answer honestly? Do you claim that you’re “too much of a perfectionist”? Do people actually say that anymore? How can you come across as the strongest candidate if you’re talking about your weaknesses?

Don’t fret! The Job and Career Education Center (JCEC) can help! This book by Gabrielle Dolan will teach you how to answer those interview questions with stories that make you stand out from the other candidates. Dolan walks you through four different storytelling types and explains the best way to approach telling these stories. Don’t worry, she dedicates a whole chapter on how to answer “Tell us about your biggest weakness”!

Need some extra practice? The JCEC offers mock interview sessions and we have many, many books dedicated to interviewing! Give us a call at (412) 622-3133 to schedule a mock interview session today with our staff! And don’t forget to check our calendar for upcoming events at https://www.carnegielibrary.org/venue/clp-main-oakland-job-career-education-center/.
