You’re interviewing two finalists for an important position in your firm. You ask each to tell a story that makes clear why they’re the best candidate for the job.
“As you can tell by my resume, my career has had some twists and turns. Early in my career I was interested in bio-tech, so I founded a startup. It failed after two years—but I realized something about myself: if I apply myself, there’s nothing that I can’t learn and do well at”
“As you can tell by my resume, I’ve always been a top performer; I did well in school, and was always top of the list when it came time for promotions. That ability earned me acceptance to the HBS MBA program, and I know that the ability and talent that I’ve applied throughout my career will serve me well working for you.”
