      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I finished third round of interviews but realized there’s an experience that isn’t on my resume (since it’s not directly related to the jobs I’m applying for) nor did I mention it in the interview process, but it would actually be great for me to leverage and demonstrates a relevant skill for the role. Is it worth emailing and dropping a quick note about it, or should I leave it?

      I have a supply chain & inventory manager interview coming up for a museum. Can anyone provide me some insight on what questions I should be prepared for? What key points to highlight during my interview? Any tips and advice is appreciated!



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.
