Do you mind saying a little more about this?

First place I’d start is knowing your resume inside out. Pick the top 5-6 projects you’ve done and frame cohesive stories describing your skill set/role and the impact YOU made. Most behavioral interviews nowadays are centered around your professional experience and it’s important to answer every question within the context of actual project situation.

I had an interview with a company I am very keen to join. I have met with 3 people so far and will speak with one more later today. I felt very off today and I don’t feel I put my best foot forward. The conversation was with the companies CHRO and I’m going back and forth with myself with whether I should email her thanking her for her time and adding information about how I feel the conversation went. I feel it could be a double edge sword but curious what others think.
