Apply the strategies of successful experts and avoid the most common pitfalls
When you are preparing for a job interview you try to guess what they will ask you and how to answer. And after you complete the interview you learned something new, you guess what you did well and maybe you identify something you could have done better so you can improve it next time. This is a long process and often you do not get a second chance.
We collected, analyzed, and formalized what are the strategies that were proven to help successful professionals land their dream job.
The only source of knowledge is experience
– Albert Einstein
Remember to include behavioral questions in your interview practice
A behavioral question is one that asks you to describe your past behavior in dealing with a specific situation. Interviewers are relying more and more on this type of question because they are very effective in predicting how you will fit in the role.
We have a collection of behavioral questions you can practice with and most importantly a framework to help you easily come up with great answers for them.

– Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Read the interviewer’s mind
One of the most powerful techniques to master if you want to set yourself apart from every other candidate is to understand what the interviewer thinks of you. Many times candidates who are smart and very well prepared to answer questions related to the job role fail the interview because they focused on the wrong aspect of what the interviewer was asking and never realized that.
With our framework, you will be able to understand if you are going in the right direction with your answers and promptly correct your aim as needed.
Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.
– George Orwell
Interview skills training is key to perfect your answers and sell your skills
Often we work with candidates who are surprised they failed an interview because they thought they made very clear that they had the perfect skillset for the position. The interesting thing is that they do have it. The problem is they were not able to convey it in a way that sounded compelling to the interviewer.
Having interviewed many candidates ourselves we know very well which ones were successful in conveying their skillset in a way that resonates with what the interviewer was looking for and we can coach you on how to prepare answers that align with it.
You only have one thing to sell in life, and that’s yourself.
– Henry Kravis
Make the interviewer choose you
Plenty of research in a wide variety of industries shows how the likelihood of achieving success in an organization is related to how well you are able to connect with people. This is particularly true during the interview process where you have so little time to give a great impression that sticks better than everyone else’s.
After studying people’s behavior for many years we identified a set of traits that you can show during an interview that not only make the interviewers remember you but have them advocate for you.
Invisible threads are the strongest ties.
– Friedrich Nietzsche
