– So can you tell me a time that you showed leadership skills? – Yes, of course. In my previous job I took the initiative to expand our clientele to Asia. Built my own biz devs sub-team which allowed us to double our revenue within six months. – Great. That’s awesome. Now tell it again,
But in reverse. – Wait, what? Why? What does that have to do– – You never reversed a story before? I mean, it’s a pretty standard interview question. – Yeah. I, I mean, I I really don’t understand how that’s related to my job or how that’s related
To the day to day work that I’d be doing. All right, fuck it. Okay. Six months within revenue doubled built my sub-team, expanded clientele to Asia. I took initiative. – Great. Yeah. Now say it again, but more efficiently, using only five words. – Revenue, double, Asia, initiative. The. – Awesome. Yeah. No, that’s a good start. But do you think you can do better? Do you think the way you told your story was the most optimal? Can you do it without saying a single word? Ah, ah, ah. Not a single word. Think about your word efficiency. – Great. That’s exactly what I was looking for. You got it right! But, but, you didn’t really explain your process and how you came up with your answer. So unfortunately, you won’t be proceeding to the next round. Yeah. But, but, but thanks for coming though I really appreciate it. – What the fuck?
