How To Dress For That Job Interview

30-60-90-Day Plan Helps Land Finance Job

Fireworks (2)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,

Chuck D.
