Stage Directions for All Players

As you rehearse your interviewing presentation, aim for the A-list of candidates by heeding the following hints:

check.png Develop and practice justifiably proud statements of your accomplishments — that is, those that directly relate to the job you want.

check.png Practice descriptions of your leadership qualities and initiative, and remember to express them in context of what you accomplished. (Did you lead 10 people, 100 people, or 1,000 people? What was the result? Has anyone in the company accomplished the same thing?)
