Phase 2— The interview process
- Cover Letter — We talk about what works, what doesn’t. If its a cover letter — assume nothing works and this is a relic of the past.
- Resume — Your ally, your friend, slip in a typo and your chances will end
- Phone interview — Hotline bling that you need to get good at
- Follow ups — How to not come off as the stalker
- A friendly word about social media
Phase 3 — Interview prep and on-sites
- “Tell me about yourself”
This always comes up. And you need a good answer to this. As useless as it might seem to you to regurgitate your experience — this better come out good. No pressure.
- “An app that you like, why do you like it?”
You spend a boatload of time on apps, why not talk about why?
- “Talk to me about Failure”
We hate this but we have to. And it cannot be a failure because you “worked too hard”
- “Any questions for me?”
Softballs, keep them interested.
- “Why <You>”
- “Why Now”
- “Why <this role>”
