Check out the five tips below for tips on how you can succeed in your Tomorrow’s Leaders Program interview!
1. Prepare Your Stories
Craft 3-5 compelling stories showcasing your leadership skills. While you may not use all of them, having multiple stories ready will boost your confidence during the interview!
2. Take a Breath and Reflect
Don’t rush! It’s okay to pause, breathe, and gather your thoughts before responding.
3. Showcase Your Unique Personality
The panel has reviewed your application in detail; now, build on it during the interview. Share insights that go beyond what’s written in your application and let your passion shine through.
4. Speak Naturally

5. Check Your Connection
