What's happening when you're job interviewing? You exchange information. You need to have the right responses to the employer’s questions. You need to ask good questions. You need the right background. You need to impress.

1. It’s about their future, not your past.

You need to get the interviewers, the most senior interviewers, thinking into the future. If you can't get them to imagine what their life will be like and what their company will look like with you there, you'll never get hired.

2. Leaders are inclusive and inspiring.

You need to be the high tide that lifts all the boats. Leaders build more leaders. They don't build more followers.

You need to show them you're great at inspiring and inclusive. You're great at building teams.

3. Stay away from one-and-done questions because then you’ll be done.

Specifically, I mean asking a great question, then receiving their response, and then moving on to the next question. That's the big mistake!

The message you're sending to them is that you are a puddle skipper. You are not somebody who's digging deep to get information and collecting it all. You're not well researched. You’re not digging deep enough to get the information you need to make a good decision.
