Whether it’s for a new job or another position with your current employer, an interview can be a nerve-wracking experience. We hope your qualifications speak for themselves, but they may not be enough to make you stand out from the pool of equally talented applicants. To get noticed, spend some time developing a few key interviewing skills. By learning how to make an authentic connection with the interviewer and articulate your value to the company, you’ll be one step closer to landing the job you want.

Clarify interview questions

Most people are afraid to ask interviewers for clarification, says Sara Sutton Fell, CEO and founder of career website FlexJobs. You may worry that the interviewer will think you’re not paying attention, but making sure you fully understand the question can really help you come up with thoughtful and relevant answers.

“Try to paraphrase the question and say, ‘Is that what you’re asking?'” Fell said.

You can also use this as an opportunity to turn the tables on the interviewer and ask them questions. Dana Leavy-Detrick, certified career coach and founder of Aspyre Solutions, says: “Candidates should ask questions that will ultimately help them better understand the company’s values, culture, and even challenges,” she says. For example, candidates can ask interviewers to talk about their career at the company, describe a typical day, or highlight the qualities that make someone successful at the organization.

Think out loud

One mistake many interviewees make is procrastinating when they don’t have an answer ready or saying “I don’t know.” Shon Burton, CEO of social recruiting tool HiringSolved, says thinking through is a good tactic to combat this problem.

“The best approach is to have modest confidence,” says Burton. “Repeat the interviewer’s question and clarify your thought process. The interviewer can give you clues if you’re actively thinking instead of procrastinating.

Know your CV / Resume

It may seem obvious, but knowing your own resume is key to interview success. You can take it to the next level by taking part in each interview prepared to provide measurable insights into the accomplishments noted on your resume.

“Whenever possible, include a statistic to put your achievements in perspective,” recommends Sathe.

Sathe saying that you’ve provided customer service to over 120 customers per week and have a 75% resolution rate is far more persuasive than just saying you provided customer service and solutions. solve problems.

“Whatever your contributions are, quantifying them legitimizes your achievements,” he says.

Tell a compelling story

Hiring managers can collect snippets of information about you anywhere, from your resume to your Twitter feed. Taken apart, these individual details may not always be an accurate representation of you, but you can use the interview to put these pieces together, creating a full narrative. more about who you are and what you can offer the employer.

“The interview is your chance to bring it all together and tell a cohesive and compelling story about yourself and your brand,” says Sathe. “Creating descriptive pictures that tell a story about your accomplishments and career trajectory aligns with the employer’s needs is significantly more engaging … than a rambling list of jobs. past job responsibilities and a description of your skills.”

Leverage knowledge of the company and interviewer

Every job seeker is required to thoroughly research the company and position for which they are interviewing, but it is equally important to know how to use this information to your advantage. Myers recommends researching not only the job description and the organization, but also the community it’s in.

“It is impressive when a candidate can talk about why he or she is a good fit for the job, as well as what is happening in the business community,” she says.

Burton adds that using LinkedIn to research the hiring manager and anyone else you might talk to before the interview can give you a good understanding of each person’s background and potentially some common ground to initiate a discussion.

Additionally, following the company on Facebook and Twitter, as well as setting Google alerts to get notified whenever the company is in the news, will allow you to do in-depth company and industry research. its. By immersing yourself in this information, you can formulate interview questions and arguments that speak specifically and intelligently about the company you want to join.
