Today, you get a podcast on The Job Interview Formula Guaranteed to Get You Hired (CAAR).

It’s titled that because, well, it’s an actual formula, which, if you use it, I pinky swear, you’ll get hired.

It literally, IMHO, is one of, if not, THE, very best podcasts I’ve created on how to answer questions—like ANY question—in a job interview.

I cover the emotional and feelings aspect of it.

I cover the step-by-step tactics.

And encore with a very-detailed example to drive it home so it registers with zero distortion!

Where might I learn something like this?

Well, I coach, individually, approximately 500 people each year. Every year. Most of whom need interview coaching from me.

To boot, I’ve been studying interviewing since 2004 as an executive recruiter.

That’s excluding the week-long behavioral interview coaching and roleplaying I endured way back in 1990. (1-9-9-0 just so you know that what’s a typo.)

You’ll also need to disregard all the hiring I did up until 2004.

Even so, I’m confident that leaves me with enough experience based on whatever’s left over.

Did I mention I wrote a book on this?

Can we agree I’ve had lots of practice?

Good!

Now, enjoy…

Is it détente or mutual destruction?

I’m not sure, but AI will change the game for employers and employees, especially in the hiring process.

Someone asked me a few weeks ago about my thoughts on the recent Wall Street Journal article titled You’re Fighting AI with AI: Bots Are Breaking the Hiring Process.

Here’s what I had to say.

I hope, as always, it positions YOU best to succeed!

Here’s a line straight out of The Zebra Code

“Always remember, your success, in anything, will have more to do with where you place your attention than your ability.”

There are no truer words when it comes to your job search.

Most people think their history matters. (Not really.)

Others think their skills matter. (Not if you keep talking about them.)

Others, the even sillier ones, think keywords matter. (Dear Lordy.)

Let’s talk philosophy today.

Some tactics too.

Let’s toss in a dash of focus. Energy.

With a splash of metaphysics.

Dang.

How ‘bout I just whip you up a three-courser of a job search, interview, and salary negotiation.

Your table is ready…

Are you getting paid what you’re worth?

That was actually a trick question because there’s absolutely no way for you to know exactly what you’re worth.

You’re worth is dependent on what someone else is willing to pay for you at this exact moment in time.

You are like a stock, a house, or anything else whose value is determined by someone else’s desires, needs, challenges, and other factors which you know very little about.

Even though your daily worth is a mystery, there are ways to determine what a potential employer feels you are worth—today.

Wouldn’t you know it? I have a video to help you better understand how to discover this.

Inside, you’ll hear me say funny stuff like, “Salary negotiation is not a transactional event. You do not win a salary negotiation. What you do… is from the time you send a cover letter and a resume or apply online or boss hunt […] from that moment with everything you do and everything you say and everything you don’t do and everything you don’t say until the time you counter their job offer […] that’s the negotiation.”

Gimme 17 minutes and 43 seconds of your life. It’ll be worth it. Pun totally intended.
