Summary: Focus is the third key to Getting The Job

Step 1

Jennifer confesses to June:

"I think I was so caught up in my own worries, to be honest the only thing I was thinking about was what they could do for me. I didn't even stop to think what I could do for them..."

In your past interviews, how often was your focus more on what the company could do for you, than what you could do for the company?

Step 2

The Third Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:


Based on your past interviews, how would you rate your ability to focus more on what the company was looking for than your own needs and desires?

Step 3

In the chapter, June uses the metaphor of the waiter to teach Jennifer the power of being 'focused' in her interview.

Have you experienced a waiter going on and on over menu options that you were completely uninterested in?

Step 4

Conversely, have you ever had a waiter that seems to know exactly what you wanted?

Step 5

How did your impressions and opinions of the two waiters differ?

Step 6

What did you learn from this metaphor and why is it so important to becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees?

Step 7

Do you realize that by just doing a little research, you can usually find out exactly what the company is looking for before the interview?

Step 8

What actions can you take before your next interview to get focused (to be a good waiter)? Be specific.

Step 9

How will those actions demonstrate to the company that you are more focused on what you can do for them than what they can do for you?

Step 10

Here is your action item: sometime today, post in community, share responses with selected friends, call, email or Facebook someone you know and 'teach' them what you just learned about the Third Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees.

Step 11
