I will also include a thank you note template on my site and will provide the link below.

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 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.
