Difficult Job Interview Situations - Continued

This task seemed impossible-Gwen did not have a portfolio to share or raw numbers to reveal her success. But she did have abilities, and she began to focus on describing these. Making a list of her transferable skills and personal qualities, Gwen referenced things that she had accomplished in school and through part-time jobs:

Transferable Skills Personal Qualities
Writing Creative
Editing Self-starter
Organization Team Player
Team Leader Excellent Communicator
Event Planning Attentive to Detail
Networking Perseverant
Fast Learner

Reflecting on the tangible things that Gwen could offer an employer, she realized that she could excel if given an opportunity. Still, competitors for positions probably had many of these skills and qualities as well. But what was she going to do, pretend to act out a commercial the way she had in her living room dozens of times? Perhaps the idea was not farfetched. During an interview, she could request an audition. The employer could test her and her competitors' abilities by giving them an assignment to complete. Using this method, she could demonstrate her creative potential in a tangible way. Instead of dwelling on her history, Gwen strategically encouraged the employer to dwell on her future.
