How to prove you’re analytical [Facebook LIVE episode #6 on Standing Out]
It seems that everyone wants to hire a perfect superhuman with both amazing writing and analytical skills.
Honestly, you are in luck if you can juggle both. My hat goes off to you. You deserve a raise.
Otherwise, where does that leave us who are great at only one of these skills?
Personally, I can write 1000 words at a clip yet ask me to take on complex mental math and my brain explodes. So here’s how you can prove that you are analytical – whether you are a mental math wizard or not. It boils down to bringing a work product sample to your next job interview.
A client, James, was looking to get into investment banking. He was a math wizard. However, he lacked a traditional MBA. In his Masters courses he really didn’t create financial models and so the trick for him was to submit along with his application a sample financial model to prove that he could manipulate Excel cells like any MBA (minus myself, recall numbers are not my strength). This strategy worked by the way.
In this episode, watch for ways that you can stand out during the application process by proactively proving that you have what it takes to do the job well – whether you bring classical analytical skills or not.
