Footprint oral interview acronym

By Michael Keefe

F: First impression, firm handshake, face them eye to eye.

O: Organize your thoughts, offer resume if appropriate.

O: Opportunities. Each question is your opportunity to tell them about who you are and why you should be promoted.

T: Tell them who you are. What is your footprint in the organization?

P: Philosophies. Share your thoughts, goals, strengths. Why do you stand out?

R: Resume. This interview is an oral resume. Tell them about yourself. Don't assume they will read it for themselves.

I: Inject your experiences, education, work history, hobbies, goals, and family life.

N: Navigate each question so that you include vital information about yourself into each question. Each question is designed for you to expand on and share more information about who you are.

T: Thank them for the opportunity, tell them what you forgot to mention earlier, tell them you can do the job, tell them you want the job, and tell them you will continue to develop your footprint when you get the job.
