“Toot your own horn”

Trumpet2

Tooting your own horn isn’t always easy!

Many applicants say they don’t like to “brag” about their accomplishments in an interview.  We get that.

Not everyone feels comfortable talking about themselves and their accomplishments…. and worse saying how you would be better than someone else can be even more uncomfortable.

Many applicants say they don’t want to SELL THEMSELVES in an interview because it’s awkward for them.  We get this too.

But… in an interview, if you tell your individual story about something that you did or accomplished that exhibits your claim about one of your attributes, you have just sold yourself and done a little bragging…. without it even hurting.

This is what makes you unique and helps you to stand out from the crowd. No one else has your story!

Tell your story. Help the employer find you!
