Lots of reader questions lately have grabbed my attention. I want to share them for the common good. Perhaps other readers have found themselves in similar situations and positions. As always, your comments and thoughts are welcome and encouraged.
Reader Question: I have a question for you which I would appreciate your thoughts on. I have a presentation to make to an interview board followed by a job interview tomorrow for a position which I am afraid I will not be seriously considered for. I am not being defeatist; it is just that I am fully aware who is earmarked for the job. I have in fact been told as much. I do, however, want to give a good account of myself, but I am finding it difficult to motivate myself. What do you recommend?
My Response: Here's the most important thing you need to remember. Even if the position has someone else's name written all over it, organizations use internal job interviews in multiple ways - ways that you can take advantage of to further your career aspirations.
