Interviewing Tips

 


INTERVIEWING TIPS


  • The first 5 minutes in an interview is the most important! This is a major "weeding out" time and if the manager has an unfavorable impression of you at this point, the job opportunity is most likely lost. Often, after a period of small talk (where you have lived, weather, etc.), the manager will pose an open-ended question or statement, i.e. tell me about yourself. Be prepared. You should prepare a 50 sentence (5 minutes) presentation about your background to include your education, your jobs and the skills you bring to the position. Tailor your comments to what is important to the manager and not what is important to you. If your opening statement is too short, you probably will be considered as too shallow, and if too long, you probably will be considered to be too verbose and unable to get to the point.

  • Answer the Questions thoroughly. Often, candidates are rejected because the manager does not feel that they are knowledgeable or posses the proper skills. When a question is asked, give a detailed answer. If you feel you are rambling, do a reality check and ask the manager if you are providing too much detail.

  • Possible questions from the Manager. BE PREPARED: Answer questions thoroughly. Yes and no answers should always be expanded. Be specific in your answers. PRACTICE your responses.Possible interview questions include:
    What things are important to your job satisfaction?
    What are some of your major accomplishments?
    What are the most difficult or the most rewarding aspects of your present position?
    What are your strengths and weaknesses?
    What are your short (6mos) and long (3-5 yrs.) term goals?
    What was one of your biggest mistakes and how did you handle it?
    Why are you leaving your current position and company?
    Which position in the past was your most rewarding and why?
    What kinds of people do you work best with?
    What is your typical day like?
    How has your current position prepared you for new responsibility?
    What do you like best and least about your current job?
    How would co-workers describe you?
    What are you looking for in a new position?
    What aspects of any position are most important to you?
    What sort of working environment is best for you?
    Have you ever resigned or been fired?
    Are you a leader or a follower?
    How do you work under pressure?
    How many hours a week do you currently work?
    Are you willing to take call?
    How do you respond to direction?
    Which previous job did you like the most? Why? The least? Why?
    Which previous manager did you like the most? Why? The least? Why?

  • Possible Questions to ask the Manager. Have a list of questions prepared ahead of time to ask the manager. A lack of questions will indicate a lack of interest in the company and the position.
    What are the duties and responsibilities of this position?
    To whom will I report and what is their background?
    What training will be available?
    What is the environment? Team vs. Individual effort
    What is the most important contribution I can make in the first 90 days of work?
    Why is this position open?
    How often and by what criteria will my performance be evaluated?
    What is a typical work week like?
    How is call structured? How often can I anticipate being called in?
    How many studies are performed on an average monthly basis?
    What is the progression of advancement?
    What is your management style?
    What means do you use to facilitate the upward and downward communications in the department?

  • Keep away from the Salary Question. This topic should only be brought up after the interview and after the company has decided that they want to hire you. By discussing this too early, you might be eliminated from consideration. If asked the question, How much are you looking for?, your response should be, I am currently making $_____and would like to have a reasonable increase, but salary is not the most important element in my decision. The job and the company are key to my decision.

  • What to remember to increase the chances of getting the offer.
    Interest and Enthusiasm- If you show a genuine interest in them, they will show and interest in you. Body language, expressions and word phrases, i.e. - That sounds great! are areas to remember.
    Present a Positive Attitude - Be careful not to be negative about a past job or manager. Bring a positive attitude about life; old experiences etc. and the manager will look at you in appositive way. It is no fun to be around someone who is negative.
    Be friendly, energetic and open.
    Your goal is to get the offer. Create a positive situation where the manager is interested in you.
    Ask for the Job! At the end of the interview, tell the manager that you are very interested in the position and the company: that you know that you can make an immediate impact: and ask what the next step would be to bring you on board.
