I've got a TL interview on Monday with my STL. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
It's very important that you focus on:
1) (Obviously) The situation: What happened? Why is it relevant?
2) What did you learn from it? Expound on that. Show why this particular situation helped you grow and develop as a leader/individual. So someone punched you in the face? How did that black-eye teach you about leadership/retail/life? Obviously an overly dramatic statement, but you get the idea. Explain, in detail, why this situation helped you develop.
3) How is this going to help your future ability as a leader? So that guy punched you in the face, how do you use that in the future? How does this black-eye make you a better TL at Target? This portion is intended to show how you can apply lessons in a forward manner.
Does that all make sense? Feel free to PM if it doesn't.
