MOCK Interview help?

MOCK Interview help?

I have an interview for a dream job! This is an executive-level position (GS12/13) in Project Management.

Would anyone be willing to conduct a mock telephone interview with me? Or perhaps provide any pointers regarding potential questions/answers?

I have about seven days to get ready ☺

Luis:

Congratulations on getting an interview. Practice interviews are very helpful and I see a number of individuals have volunteered to conduct a mock interview. Good luck with that process . I just wanted to remind you to research the company as thoroughly as possible and be prepared to provide thoughtful responses to questions like “ Why do you want to work here”, What do you know about our company “, “ What makes you a good fit with our organization”, “ Can you cite specific examples where and how you used your pm skills to resolve problems, achieve consensus or overcome barriers to success”, etc., etc. Preparation can only help but you also need to sound confident and relaxed during the interview.

Good luck.

Luis, I have personally coached 21 people to become "Killer Interviewers" in one hour. I would be happy to speak with you. Pleas send me an email to ramco1@verizon.net. During my career I have hired more than 200 professionals and have boiled the process down into the things that will separate you from all others. I provide these services to vets "gratis".
Warmly, Bob Molluro

Luis,
Contact your local American Job Center, CA that would be a local EDD office. 1) see if they have a veteran rep, who would have time or if not a veteran representative anyone who could assist you with a mock interview. I have heard great things from most State's centers, I took resume writing prior to facilitating TAP, also had some great stories over my five years in TAP about assistance rendering at these places. You might try HIREHEROESUSA.ORG, not sure you could get in with that short of notice. Good luck thanks for your service and God Bless.
