In a 90-day business plan, a job applicant sets forth their own plans to increase revenue for the company, whether it be by building new sales territory, creating new relationships or slowing an exodus of customers from the company. Creating a 90-day business plan in advance of a job interview is a great tactic job seekers can use to set themselves apart and impress the interviewer.

The 30-60-90-day business plan is often used by people seeking sales jobs, and many interviewers even expect to hear it from job applicants. Creating a 90-day business plan lets the interviewer know the applicant is serious and prepared for the job. Each 90-day business plan must be completely unique, tailored specifically to the company the applicant is interested in working for. Creation of these business plans takes a lot of research and lets the job interviewer know that the applicant has done her homework and is ready to get to work the first day on the job. Through the 90-day plan, the applicant can set out her plans to get to know the way the company works, become familiar with the company's clients, figure out how to use her own abilities and strengths for the company's benefit and become proactive as a leader within the company.
