Have you ever hiked to the top of a mountain? Didn’t it feel great to finally get to the summit and take in the views? Achieving that success takes planning, courage, practice, communication, teamwork, and a belief that you can do it.
Interviewing is very similar to hiking a mountain. Making it to the top, or having a great interview or round of interviews requires the same exact attributes, they are just applied in a different way. Planning out what you need to do to achieve success is a step by step process. Remember the process is not entirely done until you have completed your post interview notes and follow up.
Step 1 – Know the mountain you are climbing – know the organization and people who you will be interviewing with.
Step 2 – Know the questions that they will be asking you.
Step 3 – Practice responding to their questions.
Step 4 – Know the questions that you will be asking them.
Step 5 – Practice asking your questions.
Step 6 – Visualize success.
Step 7-Write down the details of the interview and prepare to leverage that knowledge in the future rounds.
Step 8-Thank the people personally for sharing time with you.
Nuances of this process are: Preparing specific content such as a 30-60-90 day plan of action.
Trust the process because the view is worth it. Making it to the top of the mountain will never be easy, but you are capable.
