You can give anyone a rundown on the latest season of "24," Net Neutrality or the Amazon vs. Hachette showdown, but when it comes to talking about yourself, it's a much different story -- especially when asked about your professional experience, industry, desires and goals.
I nearly shouted. "Everyone says the same things -- savvy, strategic, seasoned, results-oriented, hard-charging, self-motivated, blah blah blah. Adjectives aren't going to do it. You're going to have to tell your story."
