The Peak Interview describes how a job seeker can create competitive advantage in the job interview. Author Bill Burnett will be speaking to to senior executives on June 2, 2010, 4pm at Execunet, Chicago IL. This is open to all senior executives.
New insights into the job interview process can give you an edge to win the interview and get the job. By the time you get to the job interview, the company has determined you are qualified for the job. But so are all the other interviewees. Your experience, skills, competencies, and abilities will not differentiate you. Your competition is just as qualified as you are. You need an edge.
Great jazz soloists know that when they are playing a solo, they have to hit one or two peaks in the body of the solo and end with a flourish. That's because people evaluate an experience based on its peaks (good or bad) and how the experience ended. The rest of the experience is remembered, but the evaluation of the experience is based on its peaks, and how it ends. This is called the ‘Peak/End rule’. Bill shows how to use this insight in the job interview and how to produce the most perfect interview.
