This cast describes the importance of external interviewing in career management, and how to begin to handle the interview.

This cast started the same way our cast on internal interviews as a career management strategy did. Back then, we had gotten a question from a member who was being asked to interview for a particular job in his company. He called to ask what to do. He was wavering. Mark was STUNNED - OF COURSE you interview! It was one of those academic creep moments that we have pretty regularly.

For the record, for those of you who don't remember, we said: ALWAYS say yes, at least in part because saying NO is a significant career statement. And, you can yes to the interview and say NO to a forthcoming offer.

In this cast's case, Mark got a call from a competent and sharp engineer, who had been asked to interview at another company for a sales position. He wasn't really sure about sales (no engineer ever seems to be, much to most of their unknown chagrin), and wondered too about the location. As Mark was walking him through the basics, he thought, hey, we haven't done this cast yet; I'm such an idiot.
