In the context of Dr. Oswald Hager passing away, we decided end of last week to stop temporarily all our internal communications and to postpone the delivery of our last email of our PDI campaign.
Thanks for your understanding.
This is the last installment of your morning coffee mail — at least for now — so don’t forget to enjoy it while gearing up for your interview.
Recently, we learned about the SMART method for setting objectives.
Today we’ll look at how you can get the most benefit out of your interview.
The most important thing to remember: The interview is your time.
The interview is not only about checking on the status of your projects. Remember the purpose of these one-on-ones is also to discuss how the objectives have been achieved and where the areas of improvement are. So don’t be scared to stop the discussion if it seems to be focusing solely on status updates.
It is the time to develop a closer relationship with your manager. A time to ask difficult questions or share your wild ideas. The interview should be a safe space for an open discussion.
It’s your time, and your decision what to do with it!
We hope you learned some interesting new facts this week and that you enjoyed our coffee-mails. Wishing you a pleasant weekend!
