When answering behavioral interview questions, it's important to emphasize what you did to respond to the problem, and what the impact was. But chances are, you aren't describing the initial 'situation' in enough detail!
In this weeks episode, Emma and Sarah explain how you can sell yourself short if you gloss over how difficult or complex the situation or problem actually was.
We use real life examples to show you how providing enough context can set you up for a compelling narrative that will have your interviewer on the edge of their seat!
🏀 Shoot Your Shot - Shoutout to Marissa! "I never thought I would see this day. Today I accepted an offer for my perfect role with an amazing company. I’ve been struggling to get an offer over the past two years that I’ve been on and off job hunting. But this time, I knew this was the perfect job for me and I had to be 100% prepared. I searched for podcasts to help me and that’s when I found you lovely ladies! I have never felt more prepared, confident, and calm going into an interview (5 one on one conversations!!!) I left each one feeling amazing and listening to your before and after episodes gave me that extra boost of confidence and reassurance I needed. And you helped me fill the gaps during those torturous waiting periods until I got moved to the next round and finally got the offer! Now I can move on to your episodes that will help me crush it as I transition to my next role! Thank you both so much for your funny, witty, and much needed content. And most importantly, thank you for helping me believe in myself. You’re the best!"
