Job interview. it all starts here. While your resume may impress the hiring manager and help you get your foot in the door, now you really need to bring those resume points in person. Failing to convey the right message in a job interview means it’s game over.
Don’t expect a return call from the employer if you can’t convey basic messages. There is a lot that can be done to prepare for a job interview so that you can walk into it with confidence. However, it’s one thing to be prepared and another to do well in a job interview.
Along with proper preparation, here are three things you should convey during a job interview…
You are an overcomer.
Employers want employees who have a real passion for their work. During the job interview, show that desire, passion, and excitement for the challenges that come with the position.
Make the interviewer believe that you will be able to stand up on the job by showing that you have the experience and skills to succeed in the job. Ask what the biggest challenge was and provide examples of previous relevant work where you were in a similar situation and what you accomplished and achieved.
The research you have done ahead of time should also allow you to demonstrate that you are knowledgeable about the company, its business, and more.
You fit right in.
Getting the right fit isn’t as much about being nice as it is about being likable. Come out friendly and share your understanding of working in a workplace like the employer. During the interview, ask questions to better understand the type of work environment that exists, then make an effort to demonstrate that you have similar experience working in such an environment.
Another way to create the feeling that you’ll be the right fit is to build rapport with those you talk to. The interview should not be accepted as a question-and-answer pattern. You want to turn it into a dynamic conversation. Find ways to build rapport that will help show how well you understand the ins and outs of a business and work in a workplace like theirs.
You are a character with a great personality.
Hiring managers understand that job candidates can be nervous during a job interview, but those who can overcome their nerves and show some personality are more memorable and attractive as a candidate for a job opening.
When you present your personality, it’s easier for employers to see how you stand out from other job candidates. Presented in the right way, you might like it even more.
When you get the chance, don’t be afraid to add to the conversation by talking about your personal quirks or likes. That’s what makes you. When a character lacks personality, the individual can become dull and dry. It also doesn’t hurt to show how you’re different from the next candidate with similar experience and skills.
During your job interview, look for opportunities to bring the above three things into the conversation. Ultimately, you’ll come across as a more memorable and desirable job candidate.
