Interviewing for a managerial or executive level job? You know what it takes to excel in interviews. However, in order to stand out to high-level recruiters and interviewers, it is a good idea to think of ways to truly show off your experience and qualifications. To impress interviewers, you must do the unexpected, so break out of the box with these interview tips.
- Prepare a 30-60-90 plan. A 30-60-90 plan outlines your goals for the first three months as a new employee, an important time period in which a new employee often proves themselves to their managers. Create a strategy for how you will spend your first three months of employment and share this with interviewers. Providing a customized 30-60-90 plan during an interview shows you understand what the company does, indicates you can perform the job well, and illustrates your commitment and professionalism. This plan can be a simple Powerpoint presentation, Word document, or Excel spreadsheet.
- Ask specific questions. Interviewers assume that you have researched the company and understand its functions. Go beyond the basics and prepare questions that dig into the company. Consider asking about specific financial information such as sales volume and growth projections, strategic planning and vision for growth over the next five years, or recent changes in leadership. The more specific and detailed your questions, the more you show you understand the company, and can help steer its growth.
- Sell your past experience, don’t just tell it. When asked about your past experiences, don’t just provide simple answers about what you did. Instead, be detailed and specific, and tie your past successes to how you will help help this company in the future. Use every opportunity to discuss, in detail, how you want to work for this specific company and why you feel you are a strong candidate.
