"What you wish to ignite in others must first burn within yourself."
Simply nothing to add here other than the fact that you have to demonstrate passion in your interview or it will reflect a low level of interest in the mind of the interviewer.
Have a a great week everyone!

I hope all is well. I came across this and thought I would share. I always enjoy these types of articles. Below are the questions and here is a link to the full article.
What I like about these questions are that they are a bit challenging. In fact, #4 would make the interviewer a bit uncomfortable I think if they haven't been asked that before or if they are a bit arrogant. How they respond or not will tell you alot about whether you should work for them.
I also like #5. This question will also provide you with real insights because the interviewer won't be ready for this one. They will likely blurt out the first things that come to their mind...which will likely be authentic and true to reality.
I'm not sure about #2. You might have been screened by HR or others prior to the interview and this might be the first time the interviewer has actually seen your resume. This question could bomb.
Read the article and it will provide some context. Enjoy!

If you're not humble, it's hard to be coached. If you can't be coached, it's hard to get better."
So true. Humility is often confused with being weak. Actually, humility is the the reflection of strength. In the book, Good To Great by Jim Collins, he describes the types of leaders that lead great organizations. One of the common threads in those leaders is humility.
Have a great week everyone!

Hello! I hope all is well. I wanted to share a brief article I came across. It is an interview with the VP of Talent Acquisition at J&J. He shares several tips and insights that you may want to take note of...whether you are searching for a new job now or plan to down the road.
I would like to note that some of this is coincidentally covered in great depth in my book, "The Pharma Sales Interview Breakthrough Blueprint".
Click here to access the full article. His tips are below...but I recommend reading the full article for further context and insight.
1) Make your search personal
2) Skip the cover letter
3) Give yourself the benefit of the doubt
4) Research culture and mission
"Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."
We all fall into this trap of gossip. Take the high road when in this situation. It will reflect well on your brand with your peers, and it will encourage others not to do the same behind your back.
Have a great week everyone!

Professor Deepak Malhotra outlines a very simple and straightforward way to approaching your job offer negotiation. Do yourself a favor...and possibly earn more money...by watching this video.
"If someone offers you an amazing opporunity and you're not sure you can do it, say yes - then learn how to do it later."
Amen to this quote. I always look around at those doing other interesting jobs or those around me...and I inevitably come to the conclustion that I have all the skills and abilities I need to do the job...and do it better than the other person.
Its important ant to give yourself permission to fail, and to understand that failure within a given project or role doesn't mean you are a failure. It means you took a shot. That's more than others can say as they sit quietly on the sidelines.
Go ahead and bite off more than you can chew!
