When you talk about yourself and your career to HR professionals and hiring managers, kill the fluffy stuff.
- Tell me about a time when you solved a problem at work.
- Let me know if you’ve answered organizational challenges with creative ideas and solutions.
- Convince me that you are not a needy sociopath who will cause more problems than we’re hiring you to solve.
Start with those three concepts and craft your resume, CV, and portfolio in those terms. It will make a difference.
