How to make HR look great and get the job [Facebook LIVE Episode #28: Round One Interview w/HR]

How to make HR look great and get the job

A learning and development leader hired me for one-on-one coaching. He wanted help to switch into nutrition and health. During a 60-minute virtual session, he shared an HR priority that can help you make HR love you. Lucky you, right?

He told me how much he valued his relationships with Managing Directors across the firm.  He earned their trust because he filtered vendors on their behalf. He picked the best outside trainers to teach each MD’s team.

The insight is this: if you make it past HR because you were “blessed by HR” then you are a reflection of HR’s judgment. So, you need to reinforce an HR professional’s good judgment.

This insight often goes unnoticed. I see this as a missed opportunity.

You would not miss it if you armed yourself with this insight before any conversation with HR. This insight is straight from my HR Toolkit. In the kit, I give you the tools you need to deliver a strong job interview performance that will make HR love you.
