Hi! I’ve worked exclusively in small companies and I want to make a switch to large corporations. I finally have an interview next week and I want to shine.
Any tips on what big companies want to see, or concerns they might have with me not having corporate experience? (It’s an employer branding position, but overall advice is helpful!)

The politics at large organisations are much more intense. I’d suggest speaking about how you are able to manage multiple stakeholders across different departments, and gain influence internally to advocate for your projects.

First of all, Congrats on your interview! Just remember that large corporation interviewers are also human. Be yourself. And show the value you provide. Best of luck! :)

First, do your research on the company you’re interviewing with and try to get a sense of what their culture is like. Some companies may prefer if you have corporate experience, while others may be more open to someone who has worked in a smaller setting.

Be prepared to talk about why you’re interested in making the switch and how your skills and experience would benefit the company. Try to showcase your enthusiasm and articulate why you’d be a great addition to their team.

Make sure you are well-prepared for your interview. Do your research on the company and their culture, and be familiar with what they do and how they do it. Be prepared to answer questions about why you are interested in working for them, and why you think you would be a good fit. Emphasize your skills and experience, and explain how they relate to the job you are interviewing for.

My first time applying and getting an offer for a job posting without a salary on it, aka non-government job. $21k below what I currently make and $3k below the minimum I told them- I went for a job with a bigger title and more responsibility. Other companies need to learn from government jobs. Today I’m loving that my current government job appreciates my worth.
