Storytelling? Storytelling is a very compelling way to inform the interviewer that you know your stuff.

The purpose of telling stories is to get you to talk about your most memorable accomplishments, biggest challenges, the ways you deal with conflict, and how you recover from a stumble.

If you answer every question in an interview with a story, it shows that you have demonstrated your expertise in a real world setting.

Over time, you will want to build up a library of stories that, at a moments notice, you can pull off the shelf and share.
