Three Things To Make The Interviewer Remember You
Have you ever left an interview thinking that you completely nailed it, but never got a call back?
It probably has nothing to do with how well you interviewed, it was probably because you were simply forgotten.
With so many people looking for work, it's important to make yourself memorable. Check out three ways you can do that below.
Askmen.com put together some tips to make sure that you will make a lasting impression in your next interview.
1.) Knowing a Lot About the Company. Do some research, and find out as much as you can before you go in. At the very least, that means going to their website or Wikipedia, and reading as much as you can about them.
Also, check their website for press releases from the past two years, which should give you a good idea of what they've been up to. Most of it won't come up in the interview, but if any of it DOES, you'll be ready for it, just don't force it.
2.) Paying Attention When You Walk Through the Office. Look for anything you can talk about that might make them feel like you're a good fit. Even if it's something small, like the paintings on the wall or the dress code.
If you can talk about something in the office you LIKE, they'll remember that about you. But don't dwell on it. Once you find common ground and make a good impression, try to start talking about the actual JOB.
3.) Telling Them Something They Don't Know. That doesn't mean you should pull out some random piece of trivia. But if you know something they don't about the business or the industry, they'll wonder what ELSE you know, just make sure you're right.
Or you could always just do this on your next interview.
