The first question, and also one of the most important questions, in an interview is almost always “Tell me about yourself.” Your answer to this question sets the stage for the remainder of your interview. In this video I show you the three keys to answering this question and I also lead you through an example of how someone with a background in science and an MBA in finance who is trying to get a job in Supply Chain/Procurement would approach this question.
In this video I talk about climbing the corporate ladder. I outline the consulting hierarchy and talk about what you need to do to get promoted at each level.
In this video I talk about how to structure some of the questions YOU ask your interviewer during your interview in order to impress them and show off the research you have done of their company. Use this structure with most questions you ask, but not with all of them as you don’t want to overdo it. The structure of your questions should be as such:
1. Do your research on the company
2. Talk about one SAFE topic that you learned about the company prior to walking into your interview (ex. mentoring program, international rotation program, company culture, etc.). Make sure it is something your interviewer did not mention during your interview with him/her
3. Ask your interviewer about their thoughts on any of the topics you brought up in step 2. Ask your interviewer to tell you more about it
In this video I show you 4 reasons you should ask questions in your interviews. Asking questions will show your interviewer that you are interested and serious about the position and company, that you are a curious person and will continue to be so if hired, that you are very knowledgeable about the company and have done your due diligence research and it will give your interviewer a “happy” boost. Asking questions will give you an edge and make you more memorable to your interviewers.
In this video I show you 3 ways you can tell if your in-person interview is going well.
This is a brief overview of the behavioral interview process. While each company has its own style and number of rounds, this video discusses the most common process. Future segments will discuss:
- Each round in more detail
- What questions you will find in each round and how to answer them

- 3 Ways to tell if your interview is going well
I enjoy interviewing and believe it can be fun for anyone. I hope these videos help you become more comfortable with the process so you can enjoy interviewing as well. The more you enjoy interviewing the better your results will be.
