In this workshop you will take stock of your career story and learn to tell it with confidence, humility and relevance that helps interviewers see you in the job. We will work through common interview questions like ‘tell me about yourself’ and discuss ways to position your strengths, address your shortcomings, and curate the stories that best convey why you are right for the job.
