Pay Attention to How You’re Treated During Interviews

You only have a small window of time to determine if a company will be a fit for you. You MUST pay close attention to every aspect of your interactions with a potential employer before signing an offer letter.

Organized companies will:

  • Communicate clearly with you
  • Be on time for all interviews
  • Respect your time every step of the way
  • Turn on their cameras for Zoom calls, if your camera is on
  • Leave plenty of time for questions
  • Make you feel comfortable
  • Recognize that interviews are discussions, not interrogations
  • Clearly present and negotiate the salary and all terms

Companies who fail at these fundamental areas cannot be ignored. If you don’t feel right after speaking to one or more people at a company, than there is a good chance that working there will not be any better.

Alternatively, if you’re comfortable and even more excited about a prospective employer the more you speak with them, then that is an encouraging sign you’re on the right track.

Trust your gut when dealing with companies, pay attention to the process, and you will easily be able to make the right decision when it’s time.

Excellent suggestions here @Jeff Magnuson, MBA ! How recruiters and hiring managers manage behave during the hiring process is often time a clear indicator of what candidates can expect within the workplace culture once hired. Your comment addresses the importance associated with the need for awareness. Thanks for sharing!
