What do you think is one of the biggest mistakes candidates make while interviewing? One very common mistake we see candidates make time and again is that they don’t let their enthusiasm and excitement for the role and company really shine through during their interview. Hiring mangers want to hire team members that are enthusiastic and excited about joining their team and company. So next time you interview, make sure you do your homework and let that enthusiasm come through!
An interview is an interview in both directions. As a candidate it’s important to ask questions to feel out the opportunity and company as a fit for yourself; asking questions also shows you are interested and engaged in the opportunity, something employers love! When you do your research ask yourself what would be important to know for you to gauge if this is the right role and company for you. Be sure also to review the job description and be prepared to ask specific questions about the day to day aspects of the role; be prepared as well to speak to examples of your experience related to the job and job desertion.
Interviewing is an art and no matter how good you are at what you do, being a poor interviewer can cost you a solid role that is perfect for you. Don’t make the mistake of thinking your experience and personality will carry the day; although it will take you a long way, you need everything for a competitive edge.
