Are you looking for specific, compelling questions to ask in a job interview, or anytime during a hiring process or an executive search, in order to set yourself apart from other candidates? You've found the right video!
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...)
It’s a great time to be searching for a job. In November 2018 unemployment was at a 39-year low and there are companies hiring in many sectors. And that’s great news, but if you want to move on up, it’s still down to you to find the job of your dreams and win at interview. So, Make sure that your interview preparation, particularly anticipating common interview questions is up to scratch. If you manage to get through this far, you have a reasonable chance, dnd having a mock interview might just stop you sabotaging it.

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!).
