Do you realize whenever you’re interviewing with a company, you’ll have FAR BETTER results when you treat every interaction as if you’re already a team?

What do teams do?

They work together to achieve a common goal.

From the first screening interview all the way to your salary counteroffer, you’ll be amazed at what manifests when you approach it this way.

Now, sometimes, you’re interviewing and you’re not quite clear what the goal is. They might not be clear either.

But, you know you like each other enough to start dancing even though you don’t know all the steps.

Maybe, they say, “Hey, we like your background. Don’t have an open role. But, let’s get together and see where it goes.”

Perhaps, they say, “Come on down and interview for this role. We don’t have a description, but it’s general engineer-y stuff.”

It could even be, “We’re thinking about hiring someone to build out this area. We don’t have a job description yet because it’s a new position. Wanna talk?”

Whatever the scenario, I have the formula for exactly what you can do to win the day.

My formula has a bunch of stuff I want you to do and at least three things I do not want you to do…

DO NOT tell them what you’ve done.

DO NOT tell them what you can do.

And for the love of all that is holy, DO NOT tell them what you want.

There is a better way to get what YOU want and help the company get max value from you.
