"Companies count on managers to make smart team decisions and oversee group members in order to maintain deadlines and keep operations running smoothly. Be prepared to answer several situational questions that will evaluate your time management skills, problem solving abilities, and ease in leading a team. Employers will also expect you to be well-versed in products and operations, so make sure to brush up on the department's relevant work."
Since I am typically overqualified for the positions I am seeking, I am often asked why I would want to do that type of work.
I describe my passion for the type of work sought; share my love of lifelong learning; occasionally I explain how hard my family works to stay out of debt so we can do the things we want to do instead of being driven by salary alone.
