Interview for Success

Learn How to Interview for Success with Our Executive Recruiters

Every successful interview, either by telephone or in person, should conclude with the interviewer wanting to hire you. While that may seem like rather basic interviewing 101, this end goal is not always taken seriously by every person. With a minimum amount of planning, you can stack the odds in your favor of being the chosen candidate by that job hunter.

The executive recruiters at Graphic Search Associates have compiled a list of ways you can ensure that your interviewing skills help end your job search in the eastern United States:

  • Know what you are looking for. Your ability to articulate your short and long term goals is critical.

  • Be organized and prepared. If a job description exists, make sure you have a copy in advance of a face-to-face meeting. Do your homework about the company. If they have a website, review it. If a public company, ask for an annual report. If using a recruiter ask them for any information they have about the company.

  • Be on time.

  • Sell yourself. The interviewer wants to hear from you that you are the best candidate for the job and the reasons why.

  • Ask intelligent questions. Ask what their expectations of the person in the position are, what goals they expect this person to achieve, and the time frame for achieving these goals.

  • When you have a telephone or face-to-face interview, write down the name of the people you spoke to and their titles. Then, within 24 hours, write a short note to the job interviewer (telephone) or key people (face-to-face) thanking them for the time they spent with you, as well as for the information about their company and position. Additionally, you should reaffirm your interest in the position, and your desire to continue the process.

  • If you are using a recruiter, make sure you report back to them with any and all information about your interviews. You'll be pleasingly surprised how helpful they can be in making the best career match for you.
