Focus on your metrics, activity, accomplishments and how you made your company money, saved them money or improved something while you were there. Be sure to mention anything on the JD that is a requirement and why you have a track record of success doing that skill.

Response Example: Based on my research someone with 2 to 4 years of experience there would be a range of $50-$60k. I have x years of experience doing xyz (key points in the job description like selling into your market, solving problems, customer service exceeding quota, so on) I would hope to be on (mid-range- high range) of that. I would be eager to receive your best offer and can start as early as Monday. I know I have a lot to bring to the table and I cannot wait to be an asset to your team and work as hard as possible to make you proud
Use STARLT Method:
Types of behavioral/situation questions you might hear:
Most Question are fair game, but are they getting the employer more excited about you doing the job? Tailor your questions depending on who you are speaking to, some questions are better for HR while others are better for managers you will report directly to. Here are some examples of strong quedtions:
Show the employer that you have the ability to close a deal by asking for and solidifying next steps! End the interview stong by completeing these tasks:
Show the employer you have interest in continuing the interview process by trying
to set another meeting. This approach can also show them that you can close the deal and ask for the sale/Next step in the interview (or sales) cycle. Before you Close, be mindful of the last 6-8 minutes of the call. That is the “Closing Time” So you want to naturally want to approach the close- vs having an awkward or forced end.
When asking questions, and closing an interview show a huge amount of curiosity, by answering questions with another genuine question, naturally introducing the close. Interview Closing Examples:
A good follow up message can make you stand out and shows that you are excited for the role!
