The Art of Telling Your Own StoryWhen you work for a company you get plenty of practice at telling the story of the company and its products or services – you likely even get pretty great at it. Where most people struggle though is in being able to tell their own story well. Your ability to tell your story in a compelling way is directly related to your likelihood of being hired. Learn how to effectively tell your story from career expert, Merryn Roberts-Huntley. Merryn is an instructor in the business school at the U of O, a 20-year business veteran, and the author of the book, “Made To Hire: How to Get the Job You Really Want.” Most interviews start with the interviewer asking you about yourself and in those first few minutes the interview has typically already been decided based on how well you master this critical skill. This skill is also incredibly important in networking situations. This workshop will help you build self-confidence, storytelling, and public speaking skills.
