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...)
How to prepare for behavioral job interview questions
Today, I would like to share with you something I tell every one of our clients when we work with them; it is imperative, if you are actually going to win the job -- especially if you are to get a job created for you -- that your next employer perceives you as not just a winning candidate, but actually an investment that will pay off big time.
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!).
Imagine walking into an interview for an executive position at a $2 Billion dollar company dressed in shorts, sandals and a t-shirt, holding a red Solo cup. You’d be out of there in a few seconds, escorted by a security officer at each elbow.
PREPARING FOR YOUR NEXT INTERVIEW
Today I'd like to give you access to a video I recently made about how to prepare for your next interview. Whether you have an interview coming up that is actually scheduled, or if you just want general information about best practices once you do get an interview, this video is definitely worth checking out. This will be applicable to any phone or face to face interview you might have.
