Come up with 1-2 stories for each leadership principle. Make sure you use star format and include as much metrics as possible. Customer Obsession, earns trust, learn and be curious, have backbone, ownership are some of the more important LPs

This is super helpful. Thank you for sharing!

In addition to what A1 said, answer all the questions in STAR format only. Include some numbers like dollar or time saving impact in result rather just saying that they appreciated your work. Also they don’t want to hear that you haven’t actually faced any scenario like that yet. Always have an answer ready for each case

Thanks a lot for this addition! Will really help me a lot!
Hope to meet you both at Amazon🤞🏼

Hi! I’m just looking for advice about getting into the industry. I recently graduated and I can’t get any traction when it comes to job applications and interviews. I’m applying like crazy, using Jobscan, messaging recruiters, etc. Also, I have a awesome portfolio and resume. But I keep getting told I don’t have enough experience.

Btw, I’m applying for Jr graphic design, Jr art direction and internships positions.

Any advice appreciated!

CMAAS individuals - 2 questions for you.

2) Would anyone be willing to talk about their experience and WLB? I’ve had the chance to meet a few folks here and had my interviews but would love more detail before signing.

Thanks!

How can we ask for more time to review rolled out offer before accepting/rejecting like a week's time?
This is to prevent rejecting the accepted offer if we get better offer shortly after previous offer.
I think a week or so should be fine to review the offer since companies takes so much time to review and roll out offers.
