Why should you use stories in your job search?
I used to hide my story when searching and applying for new jobs. I worked so hard to appear to be the "perfect candidate" that I ended up blending in.
I read all the job search books about how to target, sound professional and hit the mark to get hired, but the only jobs that came up were jobs i wasn't interested in.
With much hestitation, I started sharing more about my past, using my playwriting and theatre background to showcase my skills and personality. Then the good opportunities started happening.
