Win big in the first round of screening. This is where you establish your positioning in the candidate line. Start strong. And stay there.

Your first interview round is the one that makes or breaks your momentum.  And this simple-yet-strategic toolkit focuses on what’s going on behind the curtains that most candidates ignore and send them packing instead of to Round 2.

Also includes:
**One editable cheat sheet to use before your interviews (not a clunky PDF) so you keep track of the key highlights you should focus on (i.e. skills, leadership, etc)
**Q&A analysis of real answers given to real questions HR professionals have used to evaluate a candidate’s cultural fit for their companies so you can derive your own answers that woo them based on your real life experiences
**Real interview responses from internal and external candidates who went for jobs in various sectors so you glean experience without the pain of loss
**Audio support walking you step-by-step through the toolkit to help you effectively hack your next HR interview so that you move forward to your interview with your prospective direct manager…and ultimately land your dream job.
**Salary Target Audio: Hear how to use the salary frameworks in this arsenal to create the conversation around salary expectations that will get you the compensation you want.

And as a BONUS to all this: A guided audio on how to master the art of using a word cloud to help you see, in seconds!, how you stack up against a stated job description so you can focus your prep time on the very skills HR is going to question you about.

    This tool kit allows the user to see the interview process from the HR professional’s perspective which gives the interviewee a competitive advantage. The subtle differences between showcasing your skill set to a HR professional versus a hiring manager are discussed and a useful HR interview readiness scorecard is provided. The audio file was especially enlightening with regards to gleaning useful information from the HR professional prior to interviewing with the hiring manger.
