Listen to the question
What’s the question about? A candidate asked me if he had answered a question correctly. He was asked, “What have you done to prepare for ‘This’ interview? He though for a moment that this question had to do with the interview for this agency, not the bigger picture.
When I asked him what he thought the question was about, he said when he left the interview he immediately remembered one of the 30 possible oral board questions, “What have you done to prepare for this position?” When you take off the twist of “This interview”, to the real root question, “What have you done to prepare for this position”, it was a question he had a drop down killer answer for. Probably the longest answer in an oral board that could be the tilting point of any interview.
He hmm and haw’d through his answer but didn’t get to use the killer answer he was prepared to deliver.
Listen to the question.
