  • What types of interviews are common at the executive level?
  • How can I better prepare for phone or video interviews?
  • How should I prepare for a group interview?
  • How should I prepare for a lunch/dinner interview?
  • What are behavioral interviews and how can executives prepare for these?
  • Are there any surprising interview questions that could pop up? Could you provide some examples?
  • What’s the best way to address an executive resume gap due to a sabbatical?
