Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : October 21st 2014 Contents They know you complain about company policies by the water
They know your "research" on the Internet looks a lot like wasting
time on Facebook or bidding on eBay. They know you always swipe
the last donut in the break room.
They re your colleagues, peers and even your supervisors. And
when you aim for a higher position in the organization, they re also
your interview panel.
Moving to the upper ranks usually requires more than just a
sparkling track record and charming personality; you often have to
submit a resume and endure a series of interviews just like a first-
time applicant off the street.
Your advantage? The interview panel is well-versed in your qual-
ifications, your successes and how your innovation and hard work
have helped move the company forward. Your disadvantage? See
Package yourself for success
How do you package yourself as the right candidate for the job
when the interview panel knows all about your flaws, your weaknesses
and your penchant for sugary pastries?
First, you have to know who you re up against for the job. Do
a little digging and find out as much as you can about the competition.
How do you measure up? What weaknesses of theirs can you exploit
while simultaneously highlighting your strengths in those same
Next, think about the panel itself. How do they like their infor-
mation? Are they detail-oriented or do they focus on "the big
picture"? What kind of relationships have you had with them in
the past, and how would that change with this promotion? Use this
inside scoop to tailor your answers to their questions, ensuring that
you ll connect with each panel member.
Differentiation and marketing
Create a three-slide presentation that will tell the panel who you
are, showcase what an asset you ll continue to be, and expound on
the many benefits of hiring you for this position. Frame everything
from the perspective of: what s in it for them? Wow them with your
"100 Day Plan" -- tell them what amazing things you are going to
do in the first hundred days in this new position.
Leave behind more than just your resume. A "one sheet" of your
accomplishments, a statistical analysis of your contributions to the
company, or a brief report on a solution to a problem or issue
plaguing the organization is an excellent way to demonstrate your
capabilities and commitment to this new job.
