Career Strategy

"What are the 3 MOST IMPORTANT things Recruiters/Hiring Managers look out for during a Job Interview?"

Believe it or not, the Interviewer is secretly hoping you are the perfect one for the role. His/her job is more to 'qualify' you than to 'disqualify' you, hence, make their job easier. They are primarily evaluating you on:

1. Can you do the job? Are you qualified to do the role? Do you have the necessary experience and the skills required? How good are you at those skills/experience? It is your job during the interview to prepare examples of past successes to assure them you can do the job and do it well.

2. Can this person fit in? Will there will be an "organ rejection" if you join them and the team decides you're not a good fit (or vice versa). Understand what the culture is at the company, and provide examples of how you are like that too.

3. Do I like this candidate?

There is an unwritten rule which says... "All else being equal, the nicer, and more professional candidate will get the role." Smile, show enthusiasm, and be sincere.
