Celebrate World Storytelling Day

Author, blogger, and career expert Katharine Hansen notes that today is World Storytelling Day. On her A Storied Career blog, she catalogs the various way this event is being celebrated.
This is relevant to this blog how? Because storytelling is the very essence of a successful job search. If you can tell stories about your achievements, both on your resume and in interviews, you will go a long way toward convincing the employer to hire you. And the most common interview question is "Tell me about yourself." Katharine's newly released book, Tell Me About Yourself, will help you build your story to answer that question--and all others--with style and substance. (Full disclosure: I edited this awesome book!)
