The #1 way I prepare for interviews

The way I prepare fore interviews is to develop a "story bank." These examples should be in your resume, and in the interview be prepared to elaborate...

Interviews will often have "tell me about a time when ___ " type questions. Write out beforehand a few scenarios that could potentially fit those types of questions. And if you don't have an experience that fits their question, it's totally acceptable to say something like, "While I don't have an example of an experience like that, if I did, I would do [x,y,x]."

So when one of these questions comes out, just pull out a story from the bank - it's even possible to tell a story from the bank if it's not related to the question being asked.

Michael I do awful in interviews I panic I freeze up and I can't think of a darn thing. Is it possible for me to write down some of these scenarios and have it written down and kind of sneak peek at it if they ask me that question?

I do something similar as far as preparing responses/stories for anticipated questions and talking points. I also research the company and connect with the person that I’m interviewing with.

Ahhhh so you're doing the answers and practicing those before doing the interview?

I usually just think about appearance, but now I see it's almost like preparing for a test

LOVE IT, I do something similar. How many stories do you create, and how do you go about creating the stories?
