Hi Linda! Yesterday I had a gruelling face2face interview with four different people in the same company back to back and half an hour and one technical interview. I failed the technical as it was way too advanced. But I followed your advice and showed my enthusiasm and interest exactly like you said and in the evening HR called me to give her reference. Fingers cross. I will let you know If I received contract. Meantime I am going to watch your negotiating skills video! Thanks a lot. Had it not been for you I would have never passed the interview
Sorry but I disagree. They are not looking for a long winded answer. They don't want you to tell them what you were doing in each of your last x number of roles and your achievements at each company. Your resume shows this and you can draw examples from those roles in questions that will follow. They want a succinct snapshot of your experience as they relate to key responsibilities and requirements of the position. They want to know your current position, current skills and what you bring to the table. Finally they want to know why you applied for the job and why you want to work for them. Simple. Needs to be answered in under two minutes
Why don't interviewers simply ask about your last position, which is usually documented in your resume anyway? I was asked this once and answered with a question -- what do you want to know? The interviewer looked puzzled and had to think for a while. Clearly she had just asked this because it was a common question she had come across somewhere, but she did not appear to know what the purpose of the question was. Most interviews I have had have been B.S. Preparation seems irrelevant. She did not pass my interview of a hiring manager.
This is the correct way to answer this question..BUT I was told some recruiters don't want you to guide them thru your resume because they already looked at it and know your *work History *. They want to know more than that -besides your last job position - Deep down they want to know your Passion, your mission and purpose. They want to make sure ,besides your qualifications, that you have intention to work effectively hard and give the best of yourself in that role.
Good tips mam. It is summary (gist) of our experience through ourselves. Until and unless we speak, how they will understand of what we want to share. Basically it is give and take relationship. Every month why we should be paid without bringing profit to employers is one imp point to be proved, through verbal communication.
I feel like answers on this question are conflicting, some will say Talk about your interests and obviously few strengths. I always talk about what i read, fitness, how i enjoy interacting and engaging with friends and that I'm family oriented and it worked for me twice.
Interview is not done objectively in all set up. It could really be SUBJECTIVE. Based on the Interviewer's style and interest and strategy in finding a fit employee. There will be times when they just do not want to know your work and education history since itll be already stated in the vitae you have submitted to them. They have already read it. They'll think that youre thinking that they have not read it yet before the interview since youre telling them again about it. There are actually people who gets preffered and hired by telling what they've been through in life and their learnings when theyre asked "tell me about yourself". So its not a golden rule not to tell about your personal life
This should be taught in high school. After all these years, I have been answering that question wrong! Even when I ask the Interviewer "What exactly do you want to know?" They never answer my question.
Your videos are amazing! I'm so grateful for all of these information you're sharing with everyone! I wish that all your videos had subtitles in all languages because these tips are useful everywhere, I speak Portuguese and I haven't found anything like you have in your videos. =)
What if you don't have any work experiences? What if you're applying in your first job? How can you answer them about your qualification if you are a fresh graduate? This tips only applies to those who have work experiences..
But good advice BTW. I wish you have a tips for first timer.. I can't really use some of your advice becoz I don't have any work experiences.
Recruters have your resume already in hands. So why should you tell them about your carreer? They are rather looking for your communication methodes and if you are a risk taker not the content of your resume.
