Allison, thanks so much for sharing. I love reading practical tips!I enjoyed this point in particular: "Most companies post their values on their Careers or About pages - those values are the lens interviewers are looking through when interviewing you." Understanding and being interested in a company's DNA is ultra important when interviewing; on the flip side, there is also an onus on the company to be *very clear* about what their values and mission are so that they can attract best-fit candidates -- something to keep in mind when one is posting a job opening on any platform, Elpha included! :)

Thanks for the great tips, @allisonsilber! I especially like the tip about viewing each interview as an opportunity to get better. Too often I see clients miss the learning opportunity and quickly scratch the interview from their memory because it didn’t go “perfectly”. Each time is a beautiful opportunity to practice your pitch, figure out what’s landing, and learn what needs to be added for the next time. Thanks for these!

You have and continue to provide great insight. I have realized that being genuine is half the battle. It is hard to create a great "pitch" for yourself if you don't really feel it.
