Interviewing Tips to Get You to Round 2
Interviewing does not need to be as difficult as many make it out to be. The KAS Washington DC sales recruiters have set some tips for you:
Set an end goal of getting a job offer. Nothing more, nothing less; focus on doing the work to get there? First, identify the obstacles. Then identify what you’re going to do to achieve those goals.
– Here’s a hint: obstacles include work such as doing research on the company, doing research on the industry, writing your interviewing goals down and being prepared with questions for the interview.
– To seize the moment, you must decide when and where you will take each action; when you plan out your schedule, you have a 300% higher chance of doing what you need to do with a strong focus.
How do you intend to stay motivated during the process? What research are you going to do to make sure you get the offer?
The KAS recruiters think it’s best to look forward to the interview rather than have concerns; there is positive and negative aspects to everything in life, the most successful people look at the positive. To look at the negative, kills energy.
Be specific about you want in a career – do you want more money? do you want a more interesting job? do you want a better company? do you want better benefits. We should prioritize these things instead of wanting them all.
Remember that people like to hear their own names. Refer to them by that.
Be sincere and honest. Always keep an open mind. We all have faults, even the interviewer does. He or she doesn’t determine how you feel about yourself; rather you do.
