Convincing Potential Employers You’re a Unicorn When You Kinda Are
Leslie Garcia

Excellent advice, Leslie. These are great positive points to keep in mind. And, everyone needs to have a solid ‘failure' story as well. Interviewers know nobody is perfect and will look for a story about something you screwed up and how you handled it. This is as important as success stories. Success stories need to be ‘we' focused and failure stories need to be ‘I' focused (you own the blame) with a clear resolution showing how you leveraged a team effort, learned from the lesson and came out better than when you went in. If you can paint the story so it addresses an issue the company you are interviewing with, all the better!
