Four Puzzle Pieces of a Functional Fit

One of the four core assessment areas in every interview is something commonly called 'Functional Fit.' By the time a candidate is being interviewed in person, the hiring manager has already made the assessment that the candidate could do the job or is a Functional Fit. So, why the need for this video?  

The key thing to remember is that everyone interviewing for the job is also a Functional Fit, and this video is a guide to help you articulate your fit better than your competition.  My best advice is to think of Functional Fit as four separate puzzle pieces, that when assembled, creates an image of a great hire.

The corresponding video will help you understand those four puzzle pieces and their importance.  Some interviews are structured where in one monologue you can describe each piece and how you’re a Functional Fit.  Other interviews don’t allow the forum for you to lay out your Functional Fit all at once, so the savvy interviewee brings the puzzle together over the entirety of the interview.

I am confident that if you remember to explain how you have each piece of the puzzle, you will pass with flying colors in the Functional Fit Assessment. I hope you find these tips valuable as you prepare for your next interview. If you would like to discuss interviewing techniques further, feel free to reach out anytime.
