I have an upcoming interview for a communications-related position. In chatting with the hiring manager prior to setting up the interview, she asked why I was interested in this position over another position that they’re hiring for. The other position is more in-line with my past experience (project/event mgmt) but the comms position seems like one where I can grow. I’ve had a hodgepodge of comms experience in the non profit and for profit sectors and it’s an area I would like to learn more about and further develop my skill set. My question is: how do I go into the interview with all this in mind? Frankly I would be happy in either position given that I personally identify with the org’s mission and work — but don’t want to come off as wishy-washy. Thanks for any insight.
How do I approach an upcoming interview? Should I emphasize what I’m good at vs. what I could potentially be good at
