The Art of Storytelling for Interviews

During job interviews, most applicants simply answer questions by summarizing their education, job history, and current situation – all information that the interviewer already knows from reading their resumes. That is both boring and a waste of precious time!

Good storytelling can make a huge difference. It is not only a way to brand yourself, but also a great way for you to connect with a hiring manager and be remembered later on.  This is what distinguishes you from the pool of candidates in a “talent database.” It’s no wonder so many people consider storytelling to be the “secret weapon” for successful job interviews.

Many international students struggle with storytelling due to language and cultural barriers. This workshop is specifically designed to help international students understand what good storytelling in the American cultural context looks and sounds like so they can employ it in job interviews.

  • What is the framework of a good story? (S.T.A.R. method)
  • What are the important values you should demonstrate in your story?
  • How do you physically deliver a good story? 
  • Other considerations for international students 


  • The workshop begins with a group lecture to discuss methods and examples of good storytelling
  • Students practice 2-3 questions with peers. You are given 3 minutes to develop the first story based on examples. After the 3 minute period, students practice with their partners which is an opportunity for constructive feedback. Students then revise their stories in 3 minutes and share with the group to receive another round of feedback. The process is repeated with different partners for different stories
  • The group is provided three popular, industry-agnostic questions (Tell me about yourself/ Give one example of a challenge that you have faced and how you overcame it./ Tell me about a project that you worked on – what was your role and what did you learn from it?)

Phone and One-Way Interview Clinic

Phone/automated (a.k.a. one-way interviews) and additional forms of virtual interviews (the new normal nowadays) are the most common forms of screening used by current employers.

However, most international students feel uncomfortable with these types of interviews due to the lack of in-person, human interaction, time limitations, and general anxiety.

This workshop aims to help students demystify one-way interviews and formulate winning strategies.
