Within the "How to Prepare for Interviews" shownotes, on page 4 Mark refers to "a series of questions". Is there a series of questions that I should be considering for each role or accomplishment beyond "What does this accomplishment prove about me?" Thanks

The key answer you want to give is "Why does this accomplishment prove I am a fit for the job?" 

Most questions you will be asked have the structure "tell me about a time when you ..." which are asking you to respond with a situtation, the behavior you demonstrated in that situation, and the (positive!) outcome of your behavior (abbreviated SBO).  Each accomplishment on your resume is a situation with an outcome and behavior.  The job description or posting for the job you are interviewing has requirements.  Make sure you have matched each requirement of the job to an SBO story you can tell from your resume.
