You have to get the job to have a transition, so get the job first.
-- Executive job interviews are often a litany of questions, but according to the authors, all those interviewer questions boil down to three critical questions: 1) Can you do the job?; 2)Will you love the job?; 3) Can I tolerate working with you? And your answers, whether expressed over coffee, lunch or at a formal interview, should be respectively: 1) My strengths are a match for this job; 2) I’d love it…am motivated by this kind of work; 3) I’d be a great fit for the company. The authors explain in great depth about how to participate effectively in the job interview.
