Just today (8th Nov 2021) morning, I had one interview and my eleven (11) years old daughter yesterday asked me to go through this video as preparation for the interview. One key point I remembered from this video was where it says that a Finance Analyst should ensure source data is reliable and /or accurate – and when I mentioned this point during the interview, the hiring manager seemed impressed! Can't thank you enough here as I now have good chance of securing the job (pending some background checks)!

I've interviewed many times, there is no way anyone speaks this correctly unless you are an introverted super geek. This is far from reality.

I was asked on my interview on the turnover and my answer wasn’t very clear as I wasn’t comfortable to share the company financial, and I think I will fail the interview

Rick Fogarty 13/12/2021 - 12:01 Sáng

I would suggest the better answer is cash flows from operating activities as a stronger answer than simply cash flows. All GAAP based statements of cash flows clearly show cash flows from operating activities in their reports.

Michael Muliadi 13/12/2021 - 12:01 Sáng

This is quite helpful for me to prepare for an interview. One thing in mind is that for strengths and weaknesses question should reflect on a honest, organic answer from the interviewee themselves. Anyone can detect artificiality in the answer. Overpromising but with a risk of underdelivering.

Daniel Goddard 13/12/2021 - 12:01 Sáng

Thank you so much Mr Richard🙏
Your video helped me to understand what l was doing wrongly during my interviews, now I am more confident with my responses.

ALHAB LIFTS 13/12/2021 - 12:01 Sáng

Great video. Ive slowly improved my interview skills with these videos you have made. Before practice, I would make my interview answers more submissive and in a third person tone. But now my answers are more affirmative and has a lot of key words such as 'I believe I made the correct decision,' instead of 'I felt/think.' I then follow this up with reiterating my strong affirmative set of beliefs I have and which I followed, which gives the interviewer a subtle tone that I am consistent with my phiosphy in a workplace. This comment may seem bone dry, but key words make a huge difference in interviews, and be affirmative = it helps show you are confident.
