Job descriptions are like a Christmas wish list, with the hiring manager itemizing every single skill, task, and experience they prefer a candidate to possess. So how can we show that we are qualified for a job when we don’t necessarily meet all of the expectations?
In this episode, adapted from a reader question Kimberly received on The Cut - New York Magazine, your host walks you through her interview prep tips so you can translate confidence into qualification in your next interview.

“Interviewing is all storytelling. Every story you pick should align you to the job that you're applying for. So take some time to curate the success stories that showcase you winning.”
“You stating the facts about all that you accomplished is not egotistical or cocky. It's your job to make sure this hiring leader and the whole team understand the great work you've done. And you've got to be shameless about it.”

Kim gives practical, USEFUL career advice. I look forward to new episodes every week.
I really enjoy this podcast! I love how encouraging the message is but also REAL advice even if it may be unsettling to hear!This podcast gets me excited and empowered to take actionable steps in my career!
Loving this podcast. The information Kimberly is sharing is invaluable! A must listen if you feel stuck, “lost”, or misguided in your career life. These are great takeaways that can even be applied outside of your work life to be honest. Looking forward to more.
I just listened to Episode 22, Being an Ambitious Woman with Tiffany Aliche and was so impressed. The time just flew by as I enjoyed the solid career advice Kimberly and Tiffany shared. Documenting your accomplishments was one of the ideas that I thought was especially good -- because if YOU don't know what you accomplished and what your big wins are, you cannot possibly expect others to remember. I look forward to tuning in again.
