  1. 1.

    Walk me through your morning routine.

      How to Answer

      Much can be said about your work style, leadership approach, and level of accountability by learning your daily habits and routine! In your response, the interviewer would like to see structure, some creativity, eagerness to learn and grow, and a certain level of self-awareness. Take a couple of minutes to walk the interviewer through your morning routine, showing a substantial degree of maturity and structure. The last thing you would want to say is that you do not have a structure to your day!

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I begin mapping out my day the night before, ensuring that I have my suit pressed and ready for the workday. I also like to make sure my house is clean before going to bed. This way, I feel fresh and never overwhelmed when I wake up. I love listening to podcasts on life, business, and finance, so I will listen to a podcast while I shower and get ready. During my commute, I take in a book on Audible or listen to music that will put me in a great mood for the day. Once I arrive at the office, I take about 30 minutes to plan my tasks and set a couple of intentions for my day. These intentions could be to do 50 cold calls that day, or completing a new module if I am training on a new skill, for instance. As you can see, I am a very structured individual, and I value having a plan for each day."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I like to get up at the same time every day, and it's always before the sun is up. I feel that if I rise after the sun, I am already behind the 8-ball. I will review what needs accomplishing for the day, have a quick workout, and then begin getting ready for work. I like to listen to energetic music or listen to a podcast or documentary while I get ready. I take transit to work, so I am sure to arrive early to avoid any hiccups when it comes to my arrival."

      "Once I get in, I review my task list to see if priorities have changed. On my way to the office, if I pass by work areas, I say hello to everyone. In my office, I say hello to my team and ask if there is anything they need and anything I need to bring up at the daily meeting. I check for urgent voicemails, and I head up for the daily meeting. I come back and brief the team concerning the day."
