So you’ve read our last blog post and you’re fully prepared to go into your interview. But now you’re wondering how you're going to convince the hiring managers that you are their perfect candidate. We've got your back! Here are some helpful tips for interview success:
Have prepared at least one reason why you want to work for the company. Hiring managers want to hire candidates who want the job and who are intrinsically motivated.
Memorize one or two of the company statistics (How big is the company, how much revenue they make). Finding current information about the company can spur a great conversation and show that you've done your research.
Ask good questions to show interest and self-confidence. Some examples include: How is performance measured? What are the biggest goals you want this role to accomplish?
Bring notes into a job interview. Bringing notes shows a level of preparedness and that you have already taken time to learn about the company and what they stand for. An interview isn’t a memory test, feel free to take notes during the interview as well!
At the end of your interview, confidently thank the team for having you and taking the time to interview. Have a positive exit to leave a positive impression!
Expert Bonus Tip: How to answer the question “Tell me about yourself." Make sure your answer is hyper-focused on how your background is relevant to the role. Hiring managers don't want to hear your whole life story, so stick to any applicable past experience, your current work and accomplishments, and your goals for the future. Keep this answer under 2 minutes.
