                                                        You just made me dodge an early bullet. I was gonna say "in a managerial position or training position" and now I see I have to say what I specifically want to _do_ for the company in those years, not the titles I want to achieve. Thanks so much for this tip!

                                                        Thank you Linda. I watched this little video to prepare for an interview, in addition to the ‘tell me about yourself’ vid. Both helped so much. Thank you. I was well prepared for the interview, and thankfully got the position. As a middle aged person going back into the corporate environment after a break, it was quite difficult to secure a position. So thank you so much!! Greatly appreciated.

Last time I answered only with the job title, which I applied, because I simply couldn't think of any other thing but voilà, they hired me. How lucky I was, I did the right thing without knowing it.
