When you’re aggressively searching for a job, don’t you wish you had some insight into what the interviewer really wants from you – and doesn’t want?
We’ve found pure, unadulterated comments, complaints and advice from actual recruiters, hiring managers, and HR professionals that they wish job seekers knew.
Take a look at what they had to say, and pay attention. What you see may help you land that job!
Caveat: all hiring managers are different, and what works for one may not work for another. If you can learn from their LinkedIn profile about the person you’ll be meeting with, you may be able to judge which of these tips may work best for them.
1) Know when to be quiet!
2) Write a unique, well-prepared cover letter!
3) Yes, good manners count!
4) Be punctual – but don’t arrive too early!
5) Be prepared!
6) Prove you’re unique!
7) Be honest!
8) Speak up!
9) Follow up!
10) But be patient!
Again, every interviewer is different and not all will agree with every single one of the above tips. But we found many hiring professionals each of whom expressed the same opinion on the above topics. Paying attention to these tips may very well help distinguish you from your competitors and help you get the job.
