We are deep in interview and grant season and so this episode we devote to the unseen but critical aspect of your candidacy: your ability to quickly and factually articulate yourself as a scholar and expert: what you do, how you do it, with whom you’re in conversation, and what you produce. So many interviews go off the rails in desperate-sounding, emotional, self-involved narrative, and framing that diminishes your actual standing and expertise. It comes down to unconscious habits of language. Karen and Kel walk you through Karen’s Foolproof Grant Template* as a structure of language that works in interviews as well as in a multitude of professional settings, in that it forces you to speak with conviction and authority. Grappling with “who am I?” delivers the forest (rather than trees), the 30,000 foot view that you need to sound like the expert you are.
