You need more than the STAR method to pass the behavioral interview.

Behaviorals aren't just the break between live coding and system design.

(though I do appreciate them for that)

How you do in this interview either builds on the company's positive view of you,
Or wipes out all the progress you've made.

But not for you!
Because you listen to today's podcast & then PRACTICE.

Right? Right. Good. 

This week's episode includes how to:
- Make people remember you
- Make people want to hear more
- Tell stories they'll always remember
- Make your real weaknesses winsome
- Know which are the best stories to share
- Draw people in with your real personality
- Understand the purpose of a behavioral interview
- Show off your competitive advantage (even if it's your first tech job)
- Influence the rest of the interview by your answer to the first question

I don't think I've ever included so many examples before 😅 Tune in to hear several of my actual answers to real behavioral interview questions.

Passing the Behavioral Interview is a skill that can be learned. Tune in as we dive into how we can improve, especially as software engineers.

Thanks for listening! And for checking out these show notes 👀

Would love to connect:

💡 Share your ideas for topics, guests, or questions for future episodes

🧑‍💻 Want extra help on this skill or others? Explore mentoring with me on a free discovery call or schedule a one-off call.

⭐️ Leave a rating & review on the podcast — it means a lot 💚
