Imagine going into your interview full of confidence, getting the offer, and tripling your salary! See how Mildred did it...
I just could not keep my success to myself; I owe you a huge “thank you.”
After taking two of your webinars I begin to put what I learned into action. Finally, I received “the call” for an interview...on Tuesday...my interview was scheduled for the same week Friday.
The first thing that came to mind was the 30, 60, 90 day plan. I was a bit stressed, only because I was afraid I did not have enough time to put together a good presentation, but guess what? I did it.
The night [before] my interview, I felt like I was "armed and dangerous," all because I took your words, did my homework and prepared myself for the interview.
I aced the interview; the following Monday I got the job offer. It was unanimous--all six people voted hands down for me and my salary tripled.
I thanked God first and then you. The 30,60,90 day plan really works.
I am excited to share Mildred's story with you--what she learned in our free job search webinars helped her get the interview, and the 30-60-90-Day Plan helped her ace it and triple her current salary.
Executive jobs are few and far between, and the competition is intense. Imagine what it would be like to get an offer for a director-level job 90 minutes after the interview? This is what Randy did. He went from getting interviews but no offers, to getting an executive job offer within an hour and a half of the interview. What a turnaround. Please read his story below to find out how he accomplished this, so you can do it, too.
Hello Peggy (and staff),
I'm a veteran of job searches (not by plan) over the last 10 years. Lately I had been getting the interviews, but no offers. I came across your site and what struck me most was the 30-60-90 day plan.
I recognized the need to re-energize my campaign, do something different, so I signed on for many of your programs. What a difference it made in landing this job.
The hiring manager (COO) said he brought in 6 candidates for the director-level job, and [the team] each interviewed 6 people. He said I was first on 5 ballots, and second on the other, and was clearly the best-prepared candidate.
I spent a lot of time crafting the 30-60-90 day plan, made sure to review it with him (he spent an extra hour with me), used your techniques to close on the job, and was able to answer more than several of the 101 toughest interview questions with your help. I nailed the interview; he called me with an offer 90 minutes after I left.
Thank you so much for your advice and assistance. Definitely the best money I've ever spent (outside of my engagement ring).
This is what a difference a 30-60-90-Day Plan makes...it elevates your interview so much that they are incredibly impressed with you and offer you the job.
30-60-90-Day Plans absolutely help new graduates get a leg up in the job search race. It's tough to get a job with no experience, but a 90-day plan shows that you can do the job even without it.
Jorge got a job usually reserved for pharmacists who complete a 2-year fellowship. Congratulations, Jorge!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your services (interview prep documents, videos, webinars, [Hidden] Jobs Finder, and 90-day plan). With your help I was able to secure a job in the pharmaceutical industry straight out of pharmacy school. Your 90-day plan outline helped me impress the company so much that I was given a promotion to a senior title, which is usually for pharmacists who complete a 2-year industry fellowship. Thank you for helping me get the job of my dreams.
Executive Job Seekers: One interview tool can make sure you get a strong offer and give you the blueprint to success in your new role. This strategy gets C-Level, President, VP, and Director job offers fast—so you save months of time and thousands of dollars, and don’t miss out on a plum job.
Imagine you were interviewing 2 candidates…one answers questions well, and the other answers questions well AND has a plan that shows you exactly how they would approach the job, so you have a substantial, in-depth discussion about it. Which one would you hire? You’d hire the one with the plan, of course.
Having a plan means that you can prove your fit for the job. It shows who you are and what you can do. It allows you to communicate at a much deeper level about this job and demonstrates your knowledge, drive, work ethic, and commitment to success.
Having an in-depth plan to discuss in your interview also means that you avoid the 3 biggest reasons executives fail in the first 18 months:
(1) Difficulty in establishing credibility;
(2) Inheriting a crisis without a plan for solving it; and
(3) Undefined performance metrics.
Discussing these things with a plan in your interview gives you a blueprint to success in your new role.
Starting from scratch, creating a substantial plan requires significant research and thought, as well as a considerable number of hours. Not only do you have to research the company, you have to evaluate all the different tasks, actions, and priorities to determine which ones will be the most impressive and move you furthest toward success. This can take days, or even weeks.
The 30-60-90-Day Plan for Executives has ALL of the tested, proven tips and insights you need to quickly create a professional, strategic, powerful plan that will give you the best interview of your life—and the job offer.
Are you getting interviews but no offers? Watch this video.
In the video, I talk about working with a job seeker (as a career coach) who came to me because he could not make the cut past the first interview, and couldn't get a job offer. This guy was an articulate, educated, talented person--there really should have been no reason why he couldn't get the job. The advice I give him is good for any job--sales, accounting, finance, health care or medical, education, retail, you name it. If you aren't making the cut in your interviews to move forward and get the job offer, you need to watch this video.
Here is your key to getting the job offer every time:
After being unemployed for about 6 months, I was perusing the internet and came across your information. I liked what I saw and signed up for one of your webinars. I think the first one I attended was how to avoid age discrimination while looking for a job. That was the one that got me moving again - got me energized and fired up! The next webinar was about the “secret weapon” to use - the 30-60-90 day plan. Of course!, I said to myself. In my industry (hotels), we use this all the time, in many ways (forecasting occupancy, creating sales & marketing plans, etc). Years ago (it had been over 10 years since I had had to “look” for a job - they came to me), I had written a 30-60-90 and it got me the job immediately. So I knew the power of it.
One day, soon after that, a job was posted on LinkedIn through one of my groups. I responded to it, and included my resume. I received a response saying they would look at my resume and get back to me. 10 days went by with no response. So I sent an email with the subject line “30-60-90 Day Plan”, and a brief explanation that if I had a chance to speak with them further about their business I would be able to put a plan of action together for them. The phone rang almost as soon as I hit the “send” button - and it was the president of the company!
This company is based in X, and I am in Y, but I was planning a trip to visit my sister who happens to live in X (and who has been bugging me for years to move there). So the president of the company suggested we meet for lunch. Over lunch, I introduced my plan, and was able to suggest some concrete ideas that would help solve some of their immediate issues. Within 2 hours after that lunch meeting, they called and offered me the job.
Long story short, I am now in the process of moving to X. This is a big change, but in my industry and at my level (VP of Operations), one often has to relocate. That is the reality, as upper level positions are few and far between.
So, just wanted to send a testimonial to say that the 30-60-90 day plan works! Of course, you must be able to back that up with concrete facts and evidence of success in the past, but that's true of any interview, especially when discussing your resume.
Please feel free to use this, but I ask for anonymity please. I am too well known in certain circles.
Lane's story shows how a 30-60-90-Day Plan can transform your job interview from 'good' to 'great'--and get the offer.
I just had to send you a quick note and thank you for your wonderful product. Before I was introduced to your product I had been looking for a new job for quite some time. I think as a "Salesman" I was likely overconfident in my abilities to sell myself.
Your Job Offer Generator offered me so many concrete ideas to improve my job search. The most valuable to me was the 30/60/90 day plan. It was the reason I got this job offer! I interviewed with the VP of Sales and he said he had never seen anything like it. He loved the initiative I took. He said he even wanted to incorporate it into their sales training for all new hires.
I have to admit, I was a little nervous and somewhat skeptical on using the 30/60/90 day plan. However, I could tell that it immediately took a good interview to a great interview and set me apart from all other candidates.

If you've never brought a 30-60-90-Day Plan to your interview, you have got to read this story!
Chuck came to a webinar and learned about 30-60-90-Day Plans the day before a big interview. He only spent 2-3 hours (thanks to the instructions and template in my plan) and created a plan that got a spectacular reaction--an amazing job offer later the SAME DAY, with a 50% higher salary!
Please notice something in Chuck's story...his plan wasn't "perfect," because it didn't match exactly with what the hiring manager had planned--but it didn't matter. See how this all worked out for him:
Thank you very much for the help I received from Career Confidential! ...I knew that I had to do SOMETHING to separate myself from the many other very qualified candidates I would undoubtedly be competing against...
[I got the plan and] over the next 2-3 hours, I delved into the templates and examples of previous sales plans, deciding on all the pertinent information I would need to include in my own 30/60/90 day sales plan.
Next, I began formulating my plan based on some great ideas I saw in the examples, utilizing knowledge of the industry and my own personal background information.
I was amazed at how easy this process became, due to the instructions and detail provided in the package I purchased (30-60-90-Day Sales Plan). A short time later, I had a finished product ready to use, reference, and present during my interview.
...Let me preface the rest of my comments by saying that I have interviewed for quite a few positions in my lifetime...I had never ONCE walked out of the interview knowing that I had "nailed it."
...I wasn't certain I'd be given the "ideal" time to present my 30/60/90 day sales plan. But, the opportunity just kind of opened itself up during the course of the conversation with the hiring manager! She was very impressed that I had taken the time to know the business, know the firm, know the job for which I was applying--and to put it all down on paper.
I walked out of this interview (which was scheduled for an hour, but ended up lasting 90 minutes), and I knew that I had just "nailed it!" And I know that the 30/60/90 day sales plan that I presented during my interview really set me apart from other candidates!
...They promised they were going to call, regardless of the outcome, sometime during the next week [but they called that] afternoon at 4:30pm with GREAT NEWS!!
I was offered the job, with a base salary 50% higher than my previous job, plus a very lucrative bonus/commission schedule!
I am absolutely certain that the 30/60/90 day sales plan helped me acquire this awesome job! And, although some of the thoughts that I had prepared in my plan may not mesh with what my new sales manager expects from me, we now have a roadmap to begin our "actual" plan for the next 30, 60, and 90 days...and years to come!
Thank you very much for the assistance. I plan on using this tool every time I am competing for a new position throughout the rest of my working years!...Thanks again,
Even though you know how much stronger you'll be in the interview with a 30/60/90-day plan, you may have trouble finding the information you need to create one. Rest assured--if you're determined, you can find everything you need.
Step 1 - Start Online
Google the company first to see what's new with them lately, and then check out the corporate website. After that, find the company's page on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.These kinds of pages often have different information than they put on their corporate site.
Are you graduating soon? Or maybe you're transitioning from one industry to another? Either way, your lack of experience could keep you from getting the job you want. Luckily, you can overcome this obstacle with a 30-60-90-day plan for your job interview. See how it worked for Patty:
I just want to give you a big THANK YOU. I purchased the 30/60/90 Business Plan video. It really walked me through step-by-step on the structure and preparation. I used it on my very next job interview. I was competing with 3 other candidates that were just as qualified. I actually didn't have the exact experience for the position. One of your videos indicated to erase that from your mind--that a company would not have scheduled me for a face-to-face interview if they didn't think I was capable. I kept that in mind during the whole interview. With the help of your videos I was able to prepare for the interview and find a way to present my 30/60/90 day plan. I completely wowed them. Needless to say, I got the job offer. With experience in the job but with no industry experience, I got it because of your videos...I am so grateful. Thank you!!!
Patty, we are thrilled for you.
If you know you want the edge that a 30-60-90-Day Plan will give you in your job interview...
I wanted to share this wonderful note from a nurse practitioner to show you that 30-60-90-day plans can work in the healthcare field, and they can help students. She got her job before she finished her degree. See how she did it:
I want to express my thanks and gratitude for your 30-60-90 Day Plan. I borrowed money from my Mom to pay for the program in October 20XX. I was starting to look for and apply for nurse practitioner positions before graduating from my nurse practitioner program. I was very scared and I didn't have much confidence in my ability to interview or even that hiring managers would look at my resume since I wasn't yet done with school.
My Mom sent an email of yours to me and I was interested in improving my chances of being noticed during the interview. I watched your YouTube videos and read your blog, but I knew I needed something more. The 30-60-90 Day plan was perfect. I listened to the presentations and created my own personal plan to present to hiring managers. I created it in color and sent them to Staples so that they could be printed in high quality ink and on heavy paper stock. I scored 6 interviews in the month of November and was presented with a generous offer the first week in December. I accepted the offer within a few days, it was that good.
After accepting the offer, the hiring manager said that it wasn't as much the content of the presentation that was impressive, but the fact that I had a personalized presentation prepared for the first interview. So while I study for my nurse practitioner boards, I have a nurse practitioner job waiting for me. That is a huge weight off of my shoulders. While other students may have to interview and prepare and plan for interviews or apply for jobs while they study, I am able to focus on studying full time. That is an amazing gift.
I wanted to share this with you because you are so good at what you do and it's wonderful that you are able to share your expertise and knowledge with other people, especially during a time when the job market is so competitive. Your program gave me the edge I needed to edge out other candidates with more experience than I had, which is priceless. It even improved my confidence overall, as I started to value myself differently and speak confidently about who I was and what I was able to do. So these skills have extended outside of the interview and hiring process and into other areas of my life. Who knew?
Blessings to you, your family, your team, your pets, everyone involved in allowing you to do what you do and to do it so well.
All the best,
P. Martin, RN MSN (soon to be ANP-BC)
I love that not only did the 30-60-90-Day Plan help her get the job she wanted, it also improved her self-confidence in other areas of her life. These are life-changing tools!
Paulus has never had to apply for work before. It always came to him...until now. He found himself in a job search, so he updated his resume, and created a 30-60-90-Day Plan (which he was told would not work--ha!). The twist to his story shows the absolute power of persistence in a job search.
Enjoy his story. I hope it inspires you.
Greetings to you and your team from Canada. Allow me to share just a short note with you all. In May of last year I was at a cross road regarding my work. I have been working in Canada for over 4 years and have not had a weekend off. We my wife and I are not young anymore but still fit and healthy to do a good days work. In all my working career, I have not had to apply for work ever, the work always came to me.
So it was a real process for me to apply for a job here in Canada. I’m so glad I found you at Career Confidential . I listened to many of the webinars and bought some of your material and studied it till I knew it well.
I wrote my resume and sent it to you, made the corrections and then did something which even my children said will not work. They are in Top Jobs here in Calgary one in the Legal sector and one senior town planner.
They said they never heard off such a thing as a 30/60/90 day plan. Well I did not listen to them. I presented my resume to a top 100 company and they were blown away with my plan. Bearing in mind I’m not that young (67-year old) I competed against top graduate young people.
The company told me they are very interested but would have to offer the Job in-house first. Long story short the candidate only lasted 3 months. In the mean time, I completed a managers 30/60/90 day plan and sent an email off to the company informing them that I’m still interested and have done some more courses and would like to present them with my updated 30/60/90 day plan.
Well I’m happy to report that I got the Job and will start on X -X- 2015 and my salary is more than I expected.
