NEW POSITION

Guest Post by Bobb Biehl

Note from Bob: Whenever I connect with someone who tells me that they are going on a job interview, I ask them, “What Questions will you be asking?”

Many times my question is met with bewilderment as they respond with, “I am the one being interviewed.  They are the ones that will be asking the questions.  My job will be to provide great answers to the questions they will ask me!” 

I then reply, “Of course you will want to provide great answers to their questions!  But did you know that the candidate who asks great questions actually comes across to the interviewer(s) as the most qualified?” 

Today my friend and life-long mentor, Bobb Biehl, shares an absolutely incredible question for you to ask the next time you interview for a New Position. 

I would suggest for you to ask for two reasons.  First and foremost to see, “Is this a Position you would like to fill?”  And Second, as a way to separate yourself from all the other Candidates.

What do you really want to

PRESERVE,

AVOID,

and ACHIEVE?

When you are being considered

for a new position,

let the recruiter/manager/committee

ask any and all questions

they care to ask.

Then ask

if you can ask them a question.

What do you really want to

PRESERVE,

AVOID,

and ACHIEVE?

If, you will keep digging into their answers

to this one question,

it will become clear to you

if this is a challenge you care to accept.

Always, ask this question

before accepting any new position (paid or unpaid).
