Just came across some interesting job search information and wanted to share. This info and more is available on YouTube...work it daily
One thing thats covered is to ask questions so the interviewer sees that you're interested in the position and enhances communication with your interviewer vs that dreaded dead air
The answer will give you insight into the company, it's employees, and other information. 2. Tell me what made a recent hire successful Again this shows interest in what you can do to not only get the job but keep the job and possibly even get a promotion later. By asking what made someone successful you show that you want to be successful and not just come to work each day. 3. What challenges will this position help the company overcome. Alll companies have challenges. This answer will give you insight into what the company may be facing or if they are expanding, etc. It also shows that you see this as helping them to be successful vs just a paycheck. It may be a time to expand how past experiences and how you helped achieve goals. 4. What skills or experiences would make me a better candidate. Especially important if your resume is limited to several points or one or two jobs. Its a chance to respond with how you know a skill or have an experience from volunteering or you can explain other skills not included in order to keep your resume concise versus several pages long
This is part of the work it daily program which involves coaching and help with resumes, interviews etc. It also stresses the importance of cover letters and how to successfully write them.
A key point that made me think is that athletes are professionals yet they have coaches. Perhaps we can all use a little help.
