|Executive Interview Preparation|
Interview preparation advice to help make the most of a hard-earned career opportunity. Effective preparation is what is going to help make candidates stand out. Whether it is researching the company, anticipating executive level interview questions, preparing executive interview questions and answers, defining relevant questions to ask or refining a sales pitch it all helps to create a positive impression. Preparation is fundamental to interview success, especially with several stages, high expecations and different interview assessments. So, it is important to do the background work (and checklist) to not only make it easier at interview, but also give that added edge during the interview itself.
|Executive Interview Performance|
Optimising interview performance to make an impression / improve chances of success. Very often, it is those small adjustments, refining techniques and offering something unique at interview that makes executives stand out. Expect several interview stages, different assessment techniques and a tough face-to-face / panel interview. We help executives improve overall performance by understanding core strengths, key weaknesses and confidence issues potentially undermining interview success. We also run through likely interview questions, answering techniques and important skills for successful executive interviews. It is all about performing on the day rather than worrying or over-analysing the situation.
|CEO / Exec Interview Strategies|
Defining strategies / tactical approaches to get CEOs / executives through interview stages. Executive interviews often comprise several stages testing different competencies, experience (track record), knowledge base and subject matter expertise. Our objective is to guide executives through this process given candidates the benefit of our knowledge to come up with an effective ‘interview battle plan’ and help increase chances of success. Whilst getting the target role in question may not be guaranteed, we aim to increase chances of getting a successful outcome. Therefore, executive interview success relies several factors impacting performance ‘on-the-day’ as well as open competition, assessment techniques, effective preparation, headhunter opinions, company research, selection criteria, candidate suitability (fit) and a good slice of luck!
Brainstorming ideas, creating presentations and configuring documents on a specific topic. CEO / Executive interviews often incorporate some form of presentation or discussion on any given topic (i.e. strategic perspective, business lifecycle planning, emerging trends, solving a specific problem, visionary approach and so on). We are able to collaborate on interview presentations by sharing ideas, researching topics and even producing an outline presentation. There are also strategies for helping executives cope during presentations, testing knowledge on any given topic, improving techniques, dealing with confidence (pressure) issues and answering challenging questions from interviewers. Again, it is about developing a tactical approaches (‘battle plan’) to excel at presentations, make an impression and demonstrate confidence under pressure.
This overlaps other interview preparation elements as it is inevitable employers / headhunters will include additional assessment methods / interview tests. A 3, 4 or 5 phase interview process will include some form of presentation, psychometric profiling, numeracy test, verbal reasoning exercise or even a group exercise. We can help anticipate likely interview assessments, give practical advice (tactical responses) and navigate executives through an extended interview process.
