For an interview for a non-tech role at a tech company, what do you typically do/say that helps you stand out against your peers?

I have a technical background, and leaned into that a bit for the interviews for where I am now (current role is not considered primarily technical), but I believe my ability to collaborate, critically assess and solve problems, project management experience, and documentation experience were strong skills to bring to the table. Being a great verbal and written communicator is also helpful. In general, there's a lot that you likely can bring to the table in terms of soft skills and transferrable skills, and being able to speak to them during an interview and highlight them in your resume can help.

I've done so well in this new role within the company that they are hiring another person to assist with what I do.

Is it wrong for me to expect either a promotion or to be paid to train this person?
