A JOB INTERVIEW QUESTION STRATEGY INCREASES JOB OFFERSOver and over again we see it happen. It’s the job seeker who interviews best who is getting job offers in this competitive market. This is why we spend so much time preparing people for their job interview questions several days in advance. It requires more than just the perfect credentials. If you don’t ace the interview and click with the interviewer, chances are the job offer will go to someone else. Too often, job seekers think it’s their lack of experience, salary, age, or too much experience that screens them out.
- When you might lack experience, but appear confident, interested and you click with the interviewer – they will teach you what you don’t know.
- Try to be “open or negotiable” on salary, the only time salary will hold you back is if you don’t know how to verbalize your salary requirement during the interview.
- Don't go to a job interview thinking you are too young or too old for a job, often the way you “word” things in the interview will reveal that you have this concern.
- If you have extensive experience, focus on the last 10 years and the impact that your accomplishments have had on your past employers and that is where the interviewer will focus.
