Create 5 Accomplishment stories using the Playbook.
Time Needed: 60 minutes
To complete these activities use the following Playbook.
Search google for stories and case studies. For example if you are sales professional, search for the following words on google: senior sales manager case studies opportunities deal sheets
You can also search for blogs of senior people who may have written case studies.
Use these case studies to craft your own accomplishment stories.
Why should you write accomplishment stories?
If you simply write one sentence – “Managed a $1M+ project”. It does not sound very believable. If you add more color to it – through a Result – Situation – Action format, your story becomes unique and credible.
When you give your resume to a contact asking him to forward it within his own company, your contact can use one of your stories to make a strong recommendation to the hiriing manager. This is more effective than simply saying -“Here’s the resume of a friend.”
You can use the same stories in your interviews.
