Prepare for this Critical Interview Question

November 14th, 2013

Whether you are a new manager or a recently-appointed CEO, you have three months to make an impact. Begin preparing for the first 90 days as early as your first interview. Be ready to answer the question: “What do you hope to achieve in your first three months?” Don’t cop out by saying that you will learn and observe before jumping in. Instead, prepare a thoughtful response.

Start by stating what you understand about the role and the organization. Avoid being critical. Then make connections between this challenge and your experience. Wrap up your answer by delivering clear recommendations, with some caution, because you will need more detail before implementing them.
