Interviewing Tips

Preparing for the Interview

  1. Know the exact place and time of the interview, the interviewer's full name, the correct pronunciation, and his/her title. 
  2. Learn pertinent facts about the company such as annual sales revenue, principal lines of business, and locations.
  3. Ask questions during the interview that will allow the hiring manager to evaluate your professional and personal needs.  Insightful questions help both of you determine if your relationship will be mutually rewarding; henceforth, the better you understand the opportunity, the more you will be able to communicate your interest in the position.
  4. 'Prepare the package'.  Wear formal attire unless they have requested you come 'business casual'.  Greet your interviewer by mirroring their handshake and have an enthusiastic smile.  Eye contact will be evaluated, so remember to keep eye contact whenever you are being addressed or you are speaking.

The Interview

  1. You are being interviewed to determine whether you have the qualifications necessary to do the job and also to gauge your fit with the current management culture and team you will be assigned to.  They will want to know how you present and carry yourself.  You also must determine whether you can be successful in the position and if the company can provide the opportunity for growth and development.
  2. Our client companies wish to hire candidates who have a "burning desire" to work for them.  Display high energy and high interest.  Both are critical to your success.
  3. Behave in a naturally friendly manner and follow the other coaching of your recruiting professional.
