Job interviews can be frustrating. Preparing for them is difficult, and it totally sucks when you get caught off guard by a question, struggling for something flattering to say on the spot. It’s like we’re living in one big, never-ending memory game, but with higher stakes than just letting your five-year-old nephew think that he won, yet again. It’s time to give our brains a break. It’s time for a solution.
The Accomplishment Journal provides a home for your most valuable work experiences to live until it’s time to leverage them in interviews, performance reviews, or job applications. Each journal question has been meticulously designed to draw out key situations relevant to common interview topics, helping you to identify “value-added” achievements as they happen. In other words, what you write in this journal will become your ultimate secret weapon in preparing for these life-changing situations. Heck yes!
This book will teach you about “behavioral interview questions,” revealing why so many industries rely on them, while showing you how to structure your answers more effectively. It will also provide greater perspective on how to approach performance reviews or promotion requests, helping you to demonstrate the undeniable value that you bring to the table. As an added bonus, this journaling habit creates the opportunity to grow and evolve over time, helping you to learn from difficult work situations, turn your weaknesses into strengths, and ultimately take charge of your career trajectory.
