Interview Details – Research the company to respond to pre-employment questions when submitting. Try to find a way to tie in any relevant work experience to match, as you are given points based on your answers. Only top 10% of candidates are forwarded to the hiring manager so you should review the job posting carefully and make sure you display your relevant experience using the same verbiage. Google any terms that are not familar to you, it may be an skill you have, but by different terminology. Interview are typically conducted with behavioral interview questions. Listen carefully and be sure to offer specific details in your responses. Don't be afraid to ask that the question be repeated or to ask that a question be skipped

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you didn't agree with a corporate decision...how did you respond. Don't say you've never disagreed with a company policy. The key is to acknowledge that you may not have agreed with something and even respectfully spoke up about it (if you did), but you understood that policies are made based on the big picture and that you supported it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – External candidates should always counter offer because you may be offered the starting pay of the position, which is typically less than the median rate for that job level. So asking for about 10-15% more is beneficial. Internal candidates can only increase 17% from one job to the next. If the position is a significant increase from your current job, you may not be able to negotiate due to the internal policy.
