Most employers do not have a shortage of job
seekers from which to choose their next employees.
To stand out from the crowd of also-rans, suc-
cessful job seekers use the interview process to
showcase their work ethic and to demonstrate
their value as an employee.
1. Prepare like you already work there, and
the interview is part of your job.
Preparation is a crucial part of being impressive
in the interview. Demonstrate interest in this
employer and this position by being well-
prepared for the interview, hopefully, better
prepared than any other job seeker.
This can also be a good way to determine how
good a fit the new employer might be for you, so
keep that in mind during your research.
What does that preparation involve?
Thoroughly research the employer.
This means looking at the employer s website,
and MORE. What do they do? When were they
founded? How long have they been in business?
How big are they? What are the names of the
products and/or services? How do they present
themselves? Where are they located? Who are
the officers and managers and other people
visible on the employer s website?
Do they have jobs posted on their website? If
they do, what are they? Do they have a lot of jobs
open or a few? Are they hiring in a specific
function or location which seems to be growing?
Are you interviewing for a job in the function or
location which is growing (if any) or in a different
function/location? If there is a function or
location which seems to be growing, see if you
can figure out why. Or add it to your list of
questions to ask in the interview.
If they don t have a lot of jobs
open, perhaps they have "low
turnover" -- people don t leave
because they like working there. If
they do have a lot of jobs open,
perhaps that is a different signal.
Or perhaps not. When you go there
for the interview, see if you can
find out why they have so many --
or so few jobs -- open (if you
observe either in your research).
If they have a section of press
releases, scan them and read the
latest carefully -- and if the latest
news was 1 or 2 years ago, wonder a
little about what is going on there.
Look for a LinkedIn Company
Profile (using a "Companies"
search). The LinkedIn Company
Profile will usually show a
summary of contact and industry
information including company
size (number of employees),
industry, headquarters location,
and where employees are located.
So offices across the globe are
highlighted with the number of
company employees who are
LinkedIn members in each
country, region, or city.
2. "Close the sale" (or at least
ask if there are any questions
or concerns) at the end of the
Joe felt that closing the sale
(asking for the job) at the end of the
interview was expected of
someone seeking a job in sales.
But, he seemed to hope that other
job seekers would be similarly
interested in getting a job offer at
the end of the interview with the
hiring manager or at least finding
out how well the interview went.
For Joe, closing the sale
translates into saying, as the job
seeker is preparing to shake hands
and leave, something like this
"Based on my research and what
I ve learned here today, I am very
interested in this job, working for
you. What do you think of me?
Am I your top prospect?"
If you are not comfortable
closing the sale or the response is
not as positive as hoped for, ask
what the concerns are (or might be)
to see if you can clear up any
confusion or miscommunication
that may have occurred. And,
make note of any concerns so the
concerns can be addressed in the
follow-up thank you messages.
Ask about the next steps in the
process -- when they expect to
make a decision, and how many
other applicants are being -- or
have been -- interviewed. Then,
clarify who is the best person to
stay in touch with and what is the
preferred method and timing for
staying in touch, getting the
appropriate email address and
Job seekers who comment here
on Work Coach Cafe about post-
interview problems often reference
not having the appropriate contact
information when they get home,
complicating the follow-up thank
you notes process. So, to avoid
that problem, collect a business
card from each person -- or take the
time to make a note of email
addresses and phone numbers to
use during the follow up process.
