Interviews can be daunting, but it's on you as the job seeker to develop and hone strategies that allow you to bring the best version of yourself to the interview. This makes both your job and the hiring manager's job easier.

I've touched on conversational interviews, but it's time to break down how to ask the proper questions to make that interview a conversation. Ultimately, this builds trust, lets your own guard down, and lets the interviewer know what you bring to the table all at the same time.

"The best interviews are conversational. The quicker you can get to a natural back in forth, the better it's going to be. That's why I want you to process all those doubts, that's why I want you to get super clear on your value going in so that the questions aren't laced with pain [or] suspicion. I want you to dispel all of that going in, and enter with curiosity." Elissa Shuck, LYWL EP.23

In this episode, I break down the exact questions to ask in an interview. I also apply lessons from EP.20, "How to Make Your Interviews Conversational," and take it a step further by combining the preparation piece, with the mindset piece. You'll discover how to use curiosity to frame your questions, how to act like a consultant to hit on pain points, and more.
