Your eBook will include the 27 questions that are blindsiding most top tier business executives who are interviewing for the top Fortune 500 roles across sectors. You will see which questions: 1) should have you treading lightly, 2) are so specific that they are meant to corner you, 3) are so broad that they can easily lead you along the wrong path, 4) the ones that are underestimated most often by the otherwise savviest decision-makers, 5) the ones that most job candidates react to in the most dull and inspiring ways thus boring interviewers. I go further to include the way that I have dissected each of the 27 questions to uncover precisely WHY someone would ask each query, along with HOW you should think about crafting your own answers to each and every single one of them. If you enjoy frameworks that you can use to express your unique career history then this is filled with them and 27-plus sample job interview answers. One note on these interview answers, the samples that I’ve provided are useful to those who are want director-level and above roles. They are taken from my 15-plus accumulated years of training “corporate Olympians” and are considered to be powerhouse responses to otherwise underestimated interview questions – the answers that will make you the strongest possible candidate.

Description

There are so many case-study books on the market for anyone vying for a job with a top brand-consulting firm such as McKinsey, Bain or Boston Consulting Group. These books often include prompts, provide guiding questions to help job candidates practice on their own, and share sample answers to again help a do-it-yourselfer. In light of this approach, I decided to apply the same methods to help any business executive tackle the behavioral questions that he’ll surely face when seeking a top role in a Fortune 500 firm anywhere in the world. However, rather than list hundreds of questions, I cherry-picked the ones you should focus on so that you can feel like you’ve covered enough ground to confidently work through any tough job-interview experience. Unlike your alternative, which is to Google-search interview questions that you think you’ll be asked (a process that can take hours to collect and analyze on your own), I decided to help you focus on the 27 questions that my clients (or as I like to call them, “corporate Olympians”) are hearing in the field.

This 50-page eBook has been a long time coming, counting after many years of coaching top-tier business executives for roles within Fortune 500 organizations where behavioral interview questions are highly leveraged to fill the most exclusive roles.

So what are “corporate Olympians”?

Corporate Olympians are the top 1% performers within a company.

They are on a list of top talent every year.

Decision-makers want to keep them.

Recruiters love to poach them.

You know you are one of them if your résumé is peppered with opportunities of increasing responsibilities in a handful of Fortune 500 organizations.

After years of job-interview coaching “corporate Olympians,” what I know to be true is that they always aim to put their best foot forward during job interviews.

It’s a little bit of an obsession—like Olympians, they aim to outdo themselves during every job-interview performance.

Corporate Olympians also rely on a playbook or a set of instructions on how to handle different scenarios—again, just like top athletes.

In comes THIS job-interview playbook.

This playbook is a compilation of the top 27 job-interview questions that have been asked of my clients during their Fortune 500 interviews—these are the questions that you NEED to be prepared to answer if you have higher job-search expectations this time around.

I go further to include the way that I have dissected each question to uncover precisely WHY someone would ask each query, along with HOW you should think about crafting your own answers to each and every single one of them.

I have even gone onto categorize each question under ones of the following headers to draw your attention to how other interviewers have either missed the mark or underestimated the very interview questions that I have found to be pivotal throughout my years of having trained middle managers all the way up the those going for and getting c-suite roles.

For example, each one of the 27 interview questions in this eBook fits into one of the following SIX categories:

  1. Sticky questions where you must tread VERY lightly
  2. Broad questions that you can answer in too MANY ways
  3. Specific questions that are meant to CORNER you
  4. Underestimated questions that are actually PIVOTAL
  5. Run-of-the-mill questions that are answered in the most BORING ways
  6. Time-bound questions that are set up as interview TRAPS

Expect useful frameworks for top performers.

Expect thoughtful sample interview answers for executives who love solving challenges.

Expect job-search insights and commentary around what is being asked for between the lines.

Expect to jog your memory around your greatest wins.

3 reviews for The Interview-Strategy Playbook for Corporate Olympians

  1. 5 out of 5

    I found great insights, experience and knowledge in the The Interview-Strategy Playbook for Corporate Olympians, and the structure and methods were in-line with my interview preparation. The common questions were explored in enough detail to enable me to create my own custom responses, and I was well prepared for the questions when they came up during interviews. I felt very confident going into the interviews having had access to the Interview Strategy Playbook.

  2. 5 out of 5

    The Interview-Strategy Playbook for Corporate Olympians provides information on why, how and the most effective way to deliver information about “You”, the job seeker. Most sites don’t give you the why in depth. Knowing why interviewers are asking certain questions makes it easier and more comfortable in answering; especially, if these questions are new to some jobseekers. I would rank the eBook a (5) because it is direct information and allows the reader to focus on immediate interview preparation and not on a lot of other topics which can be overwhelming sometimes for job seekers. – Mamie Brown (Founder and Executive Director of Community Training & Employment Resources (CTER)
