Break Out of Your Boring Shell, Put Your Best Foot Forward

“Remember, John, put Your best foot forward.”  My mother’s favorite encouraging words when I was in high school.  

Hi, I am John Self.  I am a career transition coach who specializes in helping managers and executives deliver killer interviews because this is where jobs are won or lost.

One of the most critical questions is the first one: “Tell us about yourself.”  Or, “Why do you want to work for us?”  Your answer, regardless of the question, should put your best foot forward. It should be compelling and engaging because it will set the tone for the balance of the interview. 

Last year, a new client came to me for help.  She was getting plenty of interviews but no offers. Good references, a solid record of accomplishment, but she could not close the deal.

Join me tomorrow. I am going to share with you her new answer to that all-important first question.  The answer that led to a killer job offer.

Like me, follow me and I will see you tomorrow with the answer.
