Speak only when spoken to. Do not make eye contact. Eat garlic during he interview. Wear at least two hats. End every sentence with a giggle. You should be good.

Well, that would be like any other interaction with a person you're interested in receiving something from or gaining their favor. Take cues from their behavior and energy. Do not interrupt them while they talk. They might interrupt you if you talk too much. Good senior people are usually good at getting the point faster + are usually too busy to listen to long drawn stuff and will take charge of interrupting themselves. So if you know you're verbose, just be cognizant of that as you already are and try to be concise.

In a special twist of events, I was interviewed, hired, and reported to CEO directly at last job. Be prepared like any other interview and be normal/not timid.

Nothing really, just your level of questions

Also, just be yourself. Be personable and be prepared. Nothing to worry about.

Thanks AD1 - I'm not worried about being timid - i am generally quite verbose - which worries me as some people really take to it whereas others do not

I've met your CEO. Tall French guy? He's great. Personable and really listens. Seems genuinely interested in what other people has to say. Ask things that you are genuinely curious about re: the work and his experience. Don't be intimidated but yea, be succinct with your points. And don't be shy to tell him what you know, which must be decent given the opportunity. Take it as an opportunity to learn.

Thanks starcom 1 - great advice

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression.

But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?
