Preparing for a board interview is a little bit like preparing for a professional job interview, just with a slightly different perspective. In this episode of the Board Shorts Podcast I share the main areas of questioning you will likely experience during your board interview and how best you can prepare for these. I also touch on a few other areas that I recommend you review so that you can prepare questions to ask the interviewer(s) so that you are really sure about joining their board (or not).
As a side note, it’s probably worth keeping in mind that the person / people interviewing you are likely also a professional by day and board member by night and that THEY are also doing their best and figuring it out as they go along (I’ve got experience in that!).
If you have a question or a topic that you’d like covered on a future episode, please visit the Board Shorts Podcast page and submit it via the online form.
Joining a board is a significant investment in your time, energy, and reputation. You should be as sure as you can be before you join.
