Take control of your story. When you are applying for a new job or promotion make sure your cover letter, resume and qualifications are in order. Co-founder Tricia Velthuizen shares the view from the employer/interviewer perspective, and how important it is to take control of your story.
Today is interview time.
I’m interviewing people for some roles that we have at Churchill Education.
I’ve been busy writing interview questions.
The applicants, they’re not in control of those questions.
That’s my part of the equation.
You are in control of your story
What they were in control of, and continue to be in control of, is the story that they’ve told me to get them here, to get them to that shortlisting, to get them into the interview.
And you know, that story was what they put on their resume and their cover letter.
The information that they shared, who they were and how they told me about that.

That’s the secret.
