My career started many years ago, and since then I have worked for various organizations that have always succeeded in achieving their goals. I have always worked as part of teams where a passion and desire to grow, improve and innovate has been the norm. I am a determined and ambitious person who has the support of a family who understands the level of responsibility that comes with an executive-level position such as this one. Key highlights of my career to date include implementing change within various organizations; increasing sales by utilizing innovative marketing methods; and creating and disseminating new organizational policies and procedures that help improved customer service and operational efficiency. I appreciate you are interviewing many talented individuals for this position today, but I feel the two things that make me different are the fact that I have a proven track record of achievement, and my knowledge, experience, and leadership skills are a strong match for this industry.”

“I want to work for your organization for three reasons. Number one, you have a hugely impressive track record of achievement and I have no doubt you will continue to be successful moving forward. I want to work for an organization that has ambitious plans for the future. I am an ambitious person too, and I want to feel as though everything we do within the organization I am a part of is based on growth, improvement, and innovation. Number two, you take your commercial responsibilities seriously. You are not solely focused on profit, and I find that appealing. You are a responsible organization in terms of the environment, in terms of diversity and inclusiveness, and sustainability. Finally, number three, you have an outstanding reputation as an organization. I take pride in the work that I do and to be an executive of this organization would make me feel proud.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A COMPANY EXECUTIVE-LEVEL JOB INTERVIEW – 5 ESSENTIAL TIPS!

The five tips that follow have all been designed to help you prepare fully for an executive-level job interview. Regardless of the strategic level position, you are being interviewed for, or the organization it is with, each of the five interview tips will make a big difference to your performance on the day. Read the tips carefully and utilize them during your executive-level job interview preparation.

EXECUTIVE-LEVEL INTERVIEW TIP #1

Learn as much about their organization as possible. You will get asked numerous interview questions about why you want to work for them, what their strengths and weaknesses are and what you can do in the role to help them grow. You will also be required to answer an interview question that assesses your understanding of the challenges they are currently facing.

EXECUTIVE-LEVEL INTERVIEW TIP #2

Behavioral interview questions will form a large part of your company executive job interview. Behavioral interview questions are designed to assess historical work performance, and the most effective way to answer them is by using the STAR technique. Here’s a breakdown of the STAR technique so you can use it when structuring your answers:

SITUATION: Begin by telling the interviewer the situation you were faced with.

TASK: Outline the task that needed to be completed.

ACTION: Go into detail about the action you took, and the action other people took, to achieve the task.

RESULT: Tell the interviewer the results following your answers and make sure they are positive!

EXECUTIVE-LEVEL INTERVIEW TIP #3

Consider carefully your three greatest achievements in life. Where possible, choose achievements that are work-related, such as helping an organization to increase sales, implementing change within an organization, turning around an underperforming member of a team, or overcoming obstacles within an organization that had the potential to hinder progress.

EXECUTIVE-LEVEL INTERVIEW TIP #4

You will undoubtedly want to know the type of questions you will get asked during your executive-level interview. To make it easier for you, we have compiled a list on this page of the 27 most asked questions of company executives and directors. We strongly recommend you prepare answers to all 27 interview questions listed on this page to increase your chances of success.

EXECUTIVE-LEVEL INTERVIEW TIP #5

At the end of your executive job interview, you will be given the chance to ask some questions of your own. Make sure you ask smart questions that show the interviewer you want their organization to be successful. Here are three questions to consider asking:

  1. What has frustrated you about previous company executives who’ve worked in this or similar positions?
  2. What’s the most important thing you’d want me to achieve whilst in the position of a company executive?
  3. What are your organizational strategic goals for the next 5-10 years?
