Learning from Interviews

Bad interviews happen to good people and there is little-to-no feedback to use to get understanding and do better next time. These are the realities of job search. This is generally true every time.

All you can do is prepare as best you can. Coaching is essential. Top candidates have been coached; if you haven’t been you are at a huge disadvantage, says ExecuNet Career Strategist and former executive recruiter Saundra Botts.

Having an executive-level resume and personal marketing collateral, other than the resume, is vital, so is your mindset walking into the the interview. This is an underestimated key component for success. Saundra also states how you follow up matters more than most candidates realize.

She explains these points in greater detail in this excerpt from a Q&A with ExecuNet Master Class host Tony Vlahos.
