Rank #2: #13 Ten common interview mistakes you want to avoid

Podcast cover
Read more

In today's episode, I share ten common interview mistakes that you want to avoid during your interviews. One of the biggest mistakes job seekers make is to present the person they believe the company wants, rather than showing up authentically. A lack of authenticity typically does not help you get the job, but even if you were to get the job,  either yourself or your employer will soon realize that you are not a good fit.

In today's episode, I share ten tips to help you excel in any interview. Interview preparation goes beyond understanding what a company does, it includes understanding more about their values and ensuring that your personal values align with theirs.  Beyond that, it is important that you are clear on your Career Story, and can articulate your unique value proposition and the return on investment that every employer gets from hiring you.

Rank #4: #11 Ten Smart Questions you need to ask in every interview

Podcast cover
Read more

In today's episode I share 10 questions that every job seeker needs to be asking in an interview. Many people enter into interviews focused on how they can impress their interviewer. This is the right emphasis but not the only thing to focus on. By asking really smart strategic questions, you can get to understand a company more and ensure that you are not making decisions on the role or company based on assumptions. Plus great questions are also a way to demonstrate enthusiasm for a role.

Rank #6: #9 The two sides of self advocacy : Risk & Reward

Podcast cover
Read more

US congress woman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez AOC) recently made a video that went viral when she responded to what she deemed to be a "faux apology" from her fellow member of the US congress, Ted Yoho. You can see the video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI4ueUtkRQ0

As I watched this video, it made me realize that although one of the key advantages to AOC’s self advocacy have been her high media profile and the impact that comes with this, it has also left her as a target from those who have long inhabited the establishment.

You can draw parallels between this incident and the workplace in general, which I believe is one of the reasons why Diversity & Inclusion initiatives typically flutter.

Despite the risks associated with self advocacy, the rewards ultimately outweigh the risks.

 In this episode, I also go on to provide 10 tips to becoming a better self advocate.

Previously, a degree was considered a necessity to build a thriving professional career, and the expectation was that you worked for a company for the rest of your career.
