About Job Interviews

Job interviews are all about building a frame, and there are two elements which help you to build this frame: the Speech Act of questions and narratives.

In this resource sheet, I provide you with an overview of my thoughts for how to prepare for a job interview, including scheduling a mock interview.

I offer some reflections on the likeliest questions that you will be asked:

and some reflections on narrative of value in this context, including:

stories about profession, finding your lens through story, some thoughts about sounding over-rehearsed, about telling your story, getting distance on yourself, and finally pocket examples!!

and finally, I conclude with some of the important texts and interactions which support and surround this encounter, such as the thank you note and I reflect on the “after” of job interviews.
