I've just finished a video for the New Year that is a NEW way of answering behavioral questions and situational questions. Let's throw out the tired "STAR format" and put a new twist on the answers, so that interviewers are refreshed by your answers - and you can prove your value to them at the same time!
I’ve made a video for you that helps you answer the question, “Why did you leave your last employer?” I’ve seen some videos on YouTube that are designed to answer this question that really left a bad taste in my mouth, so I wanted to share with you the very best way to answer this question. (Here are some other advice videos I've made for you as well...)
In a recent speaking engagement, someone asked me, “If you had one piece of advice on how to get past a phone interview and get the face to face interview, what would you recommend?”
Today I’d like to hit on some learnings I gleaned from re-reading a classic book on persuasion: “Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.” The author, Dr. Robert Cialdini, is considered the father of the science of persuasion (and I bet you didn’t even know that existed!).
Today, I’d like to introduce you to another way of starting an interview – whether it be a phone interview or a face to face interview with someone who has not talked with you before.
