Question 1 of 30

If we hire you at PG&E, how will you make an impact in the first 90 days?

Their ideal candidate will make an impact and contribute improvements, big or small. However, their ideal candidate also needs to exhibit strong interpersonal and communication skills and should be spending the first 90 days building relationships, asking questions, and learning not only how to do the job but also to learn why they do things the way they do. Without having that valuable information, it will be impossible to make an impact. It would be like writing a report on a subject you know nothing about without performing any research before you begin. That approach won't work.

Show your initiative by preparing a 90-day success plan, mapping your approach to entering a new work environment and introducing yourself and your work style to your new teams. Then share what you intend to do beyond the 90-day plan and how you hope to make an impact. If you are applying for a sales position, discuss how you plan to resuscitate dormant accounts, for example.

Address the needs that the company has outlined in the job posting or job description. For instance, if the job description mentions a "must-have" of strong communication skills, be sure to comment on how you plan to utilize your exceptional communication skills to see success in a short amount of time.
