Learn how to get that strong yes without burning yourself out with interview prep
I’m not in the tech sector but this is absolute gold, with plenty of transferable tips to other sectors. Thank you for such a thorough, practical post.
Great advice, with some ++. Thanks!
Outstanding article Erika! The content was great and I really loved the structure too.
When I got the "Your Weekly Stack" email my finger hovered over the "delete" button, as I wanted to spend time preparing for a first round interview. I decided to give it a quick glance before deleting it, and boy, am I glad I did.
I read this article at 9 am, spent the rest of the morning going over the suggested exercises, wrote down 4 more or less recent experiences in detail, and in the afternoon did what I think was my best interview so far. Whether I get hired or not, this increased my chances by a lot. I was able to recollect situations on the spot and give good examples for "tell me about a time when..." questions. Before this these questions were always a challenge, as my memory is terrible and I used to bring up nearly irrelevant examples when put on the spot.
Thank you so much for writing this article, and for being incredibly timely! :)
Such a comprehensive end-to-end actionable plan! Love this 💛
Went and read a few more of your articles, the same thoughtfulness across is so impressive. I couldn't leave comments on your Substack posts, so drooping some love here.
@Erica, such a great content and practical tips.
I am a tech PM and am looking for job search coaching. Is it possible to chat with you before committing to buying one of the packages?
Interesting breakdown. Thanks Erika.
Very good tips on getting over the first interview hurdle ... congrats on the article.
Thanks for the insightful post!
The Amazon leadership principles could also be a solid reference to practice behavioral questions: https://www.amazon.jobs/content/en/our-workplace/leadership-principles
Prepare a STAR method based story for each Amazon leadership principle and reuse the stories to answer most of the typical behavioral questions.
I just subscribed to her substack; good info. I just wished it was better organized (structured, headlines, searchable, keywords etc)
Also, I could not find a way to post comment on her content in her substack to which I have subscribed. Maybe I couldn't locate it? Not the greatest of experience.
