Making a memorable impression on recruiters or employers can have a huge impact as it can help you land the job you want. At VOIZ, there are a lot of great roles and opportunities being advertised right now, with many employers actively looking for the best candidates. Here are a few ways you can approach hiring managers and your interview in a way that will help you stand out from the competition, and boost your chances of success.
- Show them what you know about the organization
While it is good to ask questions, steer clear of obvious or basic questions that can be easily found on the company’s website. Make sure you let your interviewer know you understand the size of the organization, their services or products, key competitors and reputation in the industry. According to a popular career advice portal, about 36% of employers say that appearing to be knowledgeable about the company they are looking to work for, helps to catch their eye.
- Provide examples of relevant experience and skills
This is where most candidates struggle to answer or get through. Make sure your resume highlights your skills and/or your relevant experience that clearly matches the key selection criteria in the job description. When you get through the interview process, make sure to be able to explain how you have used your experience to your professional advantage or how you have used your skills in your current or previous roles.
- Ask smart questions at the interview
While “answering” smartly goes without saying, it is also important to use the interview to ask your own questions about the culture of the organization, what an average day looks like, who you will be working with etc. Not only does this help your decision-making process, but it also signals to the interviewer that you are genuinely interested in the role and are in fact a good fit for the company.
- Master your interview technique
Technical skills are not enough to help you land the job. You need to hone your technique and deliver a polished performance. Make sure to master your interview technique by working on your interpersonal skills as a more polished communication style can make all the difference. Our customer support agent Vandana also advises applicants to build a good rapport with the recruiter or interviewer, show wider understanding, and maintain a two-way dialogue by speaking clearly and finishing strongly.
