[4:00] Prepare yourself from the inside out – keep your input positive, have a track record of success with specific stories and stay up to date on current events
[7:55] Prepare your knowledge of the organization
Research the organization:
- How did they get started?
- What are their core values?
- What do they stand for?
Research the people:
- Who is interviewing you?
- What do they do?
Research the projects or goals they’re working on. If you know what they’re working on or towards, it’s easy to know what qualities they are looking for in a person.
[9:47] Prepare your organization and sales skills
Sales skills are no longer soft skills. It’s a hard skill.
Toastmasters – a safe place to work on your public speaking and communication skills
Confidently remember: the person asking the questions is in control of the interview. Don’t be afraid to ask questions during the interview – this allows you to talk in terms of what they need.
