See what recruiters are looking for when they interview you.
It's really the interview that clinches the offer.
Prepare Your Stories
- Most likely, you’ll experience a behavioral-type interview where most questions are not questions at all—they’re a request for stories about your accomplishments, experiences, and of how you’ve handled setbacks or failure.
- Many of your stories are way in the back of your memory, so preparing and practicing your stories before the interview is the key to success. Choose stories and examples you’re most proud of.
- Recruiters tell us they want to hear specific detail. Use the STAR method (situation, task, action, result) to cover everything they want to know.
Do Your Research
- Know about the company’s products or services, what their goals are, where they’re located, and about their competition.
- Read the job description for information about the work you’ll be doing.
- Look beyond their website for information, articles, and industry news.
It’s Go Time
An interview is a conversation—not a test. Your positive attitude, energy, and enthusiasm are the most important factors. They want to see that you’re excited about their company and the opportunity.
