The Best Interviewers Get the Jobs!

It’s the job seeker who interviews best who is getting job offers in this competitive market.  You may have the perfect credentials, but if you don’t ace the interview and click with the interviewer, chances are the job offer will go to someone else.  Too often, job seekers think it’s their lack of experience, salary, age, or too much experience that screens them out.

  • If you lack experience, but appear confident, interested and you click with the interviewer – they will teach you what you don’t know
  • If you are “open or negotiable” on salary, the only time salary will hold you back is if you don’t know how to verbalize your salary requirement during the interview
  • If you think you are too young or too old for a job, often the way you “word” things in the interview will reveal that you have this concern
  • If you have extensive experience, focus on the last 10 years and the impact that your accomplishments have had on your past employers and that is where the interviewer will focus

You not only have to interview well, the interviewer has to feel you will fit in with their current team and company culture.  You are not going to fit into 100% of the companies who interview you.  If you did get the job at a company where you did not align with the company culture, you probably would not be happy long term.  If you do not get a job offer, view the experience as an opportunity to learn and fine tune your ability to interview.  If you are not comfortable during a job interview – practice, practice and then practice some more!

To fine tune your interviewing skills focus on these four main areas:

  1. Focus on the impact of your accomplishments on past employers
  2. Show a high level of confidence in your ability to do the job
  3. Display a high level of interest in working for them
  4. Ask the best questions

If you master these four areas you will interview more effectively, which greatly enhances your chances of receiving a job offer.
