All You Need To Know About SET and Interview Preparation

At your executive level, you have become good at interviews, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be better. Having a great interview cannot happen by luck, so make sure you are ready and do your homework when you know you are going to have a high-pressure sit-down. Here are some questions and answers to give some thought to for future interviews.

How good is your health? Besides saying your health is fine, you should go on to state that you are accustomed to working long hours and are quite capable of keeping up a fast pace. If you have a health problem that the interviewer could find out about, give a truthful answer. However, point out that your condition has had no adverse effect on performance, attendance or ability to give 100%.

What do you think of your boss? If you think your boss is great, it is pretty easy to answer this question. On the other hand, if you really didn’t get along with your boss, then this question becomes challenging. Never discuss the shortcomings of your boss. Doing so will make you sound like a whiner or troublemaker. Instead, comment briefl y on some positive aspects of your boss, be they in his personality or her management style… and leave it at that.

Why haven’t you found a job so far? Being apologetic or simply saying that it’s a tough market in your fi eld will not help you. Depending upon the length of your unemployment, it may be enough to respond that you are not seeking a job, but are selectively looking for the right career opportunity and have not yet found it.

What was the last book you read, movie you saw, or sporting event you attended? Unless the movie or book is controversial, tell the truth. But, it’s important that you have read, seen, or attended whatever you claimed, since more detailed questioning may follow.

Why aren’t you earning more at your age? If you are in a low paying industry, make sure that you point out that you have received performance raises. Also point out that your industry / function is traditionally low paying, which is one of the reasons you are looking for a new job. When discussing how much you are making, respond in terms of value of the job. For example, “My position has a range that goes from ______ to _______, and I am well over the midpoint. Because of performance, I’m one of the better paid in the firm.”
