When leading teams, it is critical to our success that everyone has a common understanding of what success looks like. Every business I know struggles with hiring. Where are the top performers? How do I identify them? How do I attract them? How excited are they to join my organization and add value quickly?
Getting through to the job interview stage in the hiring process means the employer believes you have the right experience and skills for the job on paper. But now comes the real deal-breaker—whether you can communicate those skills effectively in-person and whether you come off as the right fit for the company's workplace culture.
There are typical red flags employers watch for in job interviews. Any one red flag can reduce your chances considerably, so here's what you need to avoid in your next job interview...
The job interview is an essential part of the screening process for employers. It helps employers dig deep beyond the resume to find out about: 1) your experience and skills for the job, 2) whether you're a good fit to its workplace culture, and 3) your career goals and outlook to determine how dedicated and loyal you'll be to the job and continued employment with the company.
The longer your job search drags on, the more you start to doubt your interviewing abilities. Or worse—you start to doubt your skills and experience as a job candidate, which in turn affects your interview confidence. You may begin to ask yourself, "What are employers really looking for in a job candidate?" The good news is we can help you understand just what you need to convey in a job interview to stand out to employers and finally land that dream job.
