John Kratz

This week on Career Crashers Joel is joined by John Kratz, co-founder of STORYseekers, where he helps people sell, lead, and influence with stories.

I think the biggest mistake I see students make when they’re doing any kind of interview is that they think it’s about demonstrating their competency, when in reality, what they want to reveal is their character.

At Crash, we know the power your story has when launching your career, so we’re excited to have John share his career story and how young professionals can win opportunities by telling better stories.

I believe that the shortest path between two people is a story.
