Internal??Align with the right people who can influence the decision. External? Prepare 2-3 stories of how you navigated a difficult situation (or someone that was difficult to work with). Other candidates might have more experience and yet you might have better people skills

I spun my resume to fit the role and quantified my accomplishments into something that made a difference to my company. I also really upped my personal skills and charisma while interviewing. You really should be likeable if it’s a client-facing role. I have significantly less tech experience than others who graduated with MIS or CS degrees, and I also don’t have certifications but I’ve had tech and software companies reach out for consulting gigs. Try to also reach out to people you may know in the industry to give you a recommendation!

Highlight any “important” people you’ve interacted with, especially if negotiation or explanation (from you to VIP) was involved. E.g., politicians/govt officials or professors.

Went out to JR’s in Dallas tonight to watch Drag Race and let’s just say the gays are NOT afraid of this at all. They were out in full force tonight! We survived AIDS, we’ll survive this too!
