Got a good article from Linkedin….
Kristina walked into my office and took a seat.
“So, tell me,” I said, “what excites you about this role?”
“I feel I’m very qualified for this job,” she said. “I majored in communications in college with a focus on conflict resolution. I did an internship at Search for Common Ground and spent two years with Teach for America. I can bring a lot to this organization.”
Yes, I thought to myself. I read your resume. So I already knew all of that.
Kristina continued for ten minutes to regale me with her experience, still not telling me what I actually wanted to know: what excited her about this role.
“Do you have any questions?” I asked her.
“Not really,” she said. “I just want to say again how excited I am, and that I think I’m a very good fit here.”
It was the first time I’d heard about excitement. Though as you know, not the first mention of what a good fit she was for the job.
I thanked her politely and called in the next person.
