  • Preparing for a Job Interview with the CEO: Ten Questions and Answers-

    Goals and Vision

    What do you hope to accomplish within the next year?

    One of the most important things CEOs want to know about a candidate is what you're going to accomplish once hired for the position.

    What to include in your answer:

    Tell the employer about your vision as an employee for their company. The interviewer already knows you're qualified (on paper) for the position; now you need to explain how you'll help their company reach the next level. Talk about a combination of your skills and strengths that will bring you success as an employee. You should also reference previous accomplishment stories that would support your vision for this job.

So you have a job interview, and with the company's CEO, no less. While getting ready for any job interview takes a dedicated amount of work and effort, and comes with a fair amount of stress, getting ready for a C-level interview can be downright intimidating. This is the top brass, the one that (hopefully) has a vested interested in the long-term success of the company.

So what do you do? Research on the company would obviously be first on the list. The more you know, the better prepared you'll be. But, you also need to fully understand your past and your motivation for doing the work entailed in the job for which you are applying. Think long-term career goals.
