Unconventional Interviewing Strategies: How a 90-Day Plan and Team Research Can Transform Your Job Hunt

2 pieces of uncommon interviewing advice I gave to a friend yesterday:

1. Create a 90-day plan for what you’d do if you joined, even if they don’t ask you for this.
This helps show initiative and can show you know your stuff, their business, etc. 🌶️Arthur Castillo and John McDevitt shared they have both done this in the past and found success with it.

2. Research who is on the current team. 
That will help you see if you’re backfilling someone or if it’s a net new addition to the team. Also see how many are on the team, esp. in your specific discipline. Then position yourself accordingly.
