Over the years, I have beneted from outstanding academic and career advice and from excellent mentoring and interview coach- ing. Many of my successes—from gaining admission to top universities, to landing jobs within prestigious companies such as McKinsey & Com- pany and Morgan Stanley—would not have been possible except for the wonderful mentoring I have received over the years. My gratitude for this assistance created in me years ago a dedication to empowering other people with knowledge and resources, helping enable them to make their own dreams become reality. For more than fteen years, I have devel- oped my own perspectives on interviewing and career management best practices, and I have conveyed those perspectives to others, helping them to secure access to excellent jobs and academic programs as a result. I have enjoyed designing educational resources using different tools that prod people to think deeply about how they can best develop their talents, how they can put them to use, and how they can effectively draw on educational resources to open doors of opportunity. In this work, I am happy to share important insights about inter- viewing. The art of interviewing excellently is relevant not only for those in business, but for those pursuing employment in many other elds—from law to the nonprot sector. Similarly, the insights of this book can help you regardless of whether you are seeking full-time employment, part-time employment, internships, or admission into aca- demic programs.
