I'm looking to become a manager, and there are a few rounds of interviews with various executives in our company. This will be my first managerial position, but I'm confident in my skills and management ability (my manager has been "grooming" me for this position for a few months). Because of my inexperience with the hiring process for managerial staff, I asked my manager. She told me that it would be rounds of interviews with executives to determine whether or not I am a good fit.
Although I'm a bit nervous, I'm even more curious as to common business practices, but a quick Google search didn't reveal much information regarding hiring for managers.
I've been to interviews before, but what are some of the major differences between hiring an manager versus hiring an employee, and how can I use them to my advantage?
