Application Tips & Tricks: How to Best Prepare for Your Interview

Have you been extended an interview for a Target Accelerators program and don’t know how to prepare for it? Listen in as Tahaji, the Target Forward Founders Senior Program Manager from our team shares what the interview process is like and the valuable tips to lead you to a great interview! Four key tips to remember before your interview are:

  1. Be prepared to share a quick elevator pitch about you and your company.  Keep it short, no more than 90 seconds.  Share quickly who you are and your background, why you started your company and what you sell.  
  2. Be prepared to talk about the past and future of your business. Reflect on how your business got here today and what you are looking to do in the future.  What is your vision for your company in 1 year, 5 years?  
  3. Be a student of your category.  Think about what is happening or trending? Reflect on where your company fits within that and how you are standing out. 
  4. Understand the program.  Be sure to understand what program you are applying for and what it offers.  You can visit our website and check out the program pages to learn more.  Also check out any of our past webinar recordings to learn more about the program itself.
