Interviews can be nerve-wracking, especially when what’s at stake is a role for you and a new project for your firm. During the proposal process clients often want to meet the prospective team, or at least the key members, before they make their final decision. And it’s understandable. If you were going to pay someone even $50,000 for a project, never mind millions, wouldn’t you? While you may have found internal staffing conversations to be less formal, this isn’t the place to wing it. Here are a few mistakes I personally witnessed this week that you should avoid if you find yourself in the hot seat.
So what’s my advice to avoid these mistakes? Do your homework, prepare well, know what makes you different, have a perspective and be professional.
