I would appreciate help preparing for an interview the purpose of which is to get a better understanding of my experience, motivation and ‘fit’ within their culture. I generally interview well, but I have trouble with these types of interviews. I own the interview series and have listened to every interview-related podcast several times.
It will be a phone interview for a consultant role. I have never worked for a consulting firm. I don't have a good track record for these culture fit interviews. I don't believe that I overthink it and try to make myself into something I'm not. And I'm not naive about extreme candor. I'm honest. I try to present the best "me" that I can and be energetic and warm. I really like this firm and I think my enthusiasm will come through. But I'm very anxious about how to prepare.
I will have a well practiced "tell me about yourself" answer. And I'll practice talking about career decisons, why I left a job, why I took a job etc. Any additonal thoughts on how to prepare or what to expect would be helpful and appreciated.
Thank you. J (7115)
The interview process: 1st) candidate’s experience, motivation and ‘fit’ within our culture; 2nd) skills/knowledge; 3rd) Case Study Presentation
