CRUSH Your Next Interview - Part 2 (Tips #1-5)
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In the last episode, I took you through tips #6-10 to help you CRUSH Your Next Interview. This episode walks you through my top five interview tips. If you do just one of these things, you will approach your next interview from a completely different place.

 

In this episode, I’m talking about how you can answer the dreaded “Tell Me About Yourself” question differently that will immediately generate more interest in who you are and what you do. Hint: Don’t recap your resume job by job. 

 

Remember, they are interviewing you, and you get to interview them as well. So be clear about why you are interviewing and why you want the job. 

 

I’ve interviewed many people in my career, and I’ve interviewed for a lot of jobs. Leverage my experience and insights to help you prepare more thoughtfully and strategically for your next interview. 

 

Plus, stay tuned for next week’s episode when I share my interview pet peeves with you!
