Yikes! I haven't interviewed in ten years...
Interviewing can be intimidating, especially if you haven't done it in a while. for me interviewing is more of an art than a science. The most important piece is to be sure you truly know your product (YOU). It is very much like a sales process, in this instance you are the product and the company you are applying to is the buyer. So how do you best pitch your product and hook them?
Be able to simply and succinctly convey the value you will bring to the organization - Your Personal Brand
Do your research - this is a biggie. Your role is to look beyond the written job description and understand the pain points. In other words if you are an accomplished professional and seeking a similar role, you have likely been through and solved some of the same challenges this company is facing. Even if it's a career change situation, you can do research and speak with others in similar roles to find out what ways you will be able to bring value to the position
