The hidden agenda of interviews

The Hidden Agenda of Interviews

Copyright 2005 The Perfect Interview

It’s Not What They Ask – The Hidden Agenda of Interviews What do
you think you’re going to an interview for? To list your
qualifications and discuss what’s on your resume? That’s just
the tip of the iceberg, and you’re the Titanic if you don’t go
in with at least an idea of what is behind their questions.

Sure, there are the standard questions, because the basic
information has to be conveyed some way, and besides reading
your resume, they like to see you sweat and whether you can be
caught out with any inconsistencies between what is on paper,
and what comes out of your mouth. But interviews can be full of
potholes that you won’t even see coming, because you’ve been
lulled into a false sense of bonhomie by the pleasant manner of
the recruiter. Before you know it, and sometimes even without
knowing it, you’re spilling all your little job secrets, your
insecurities, and clues as to your character or work ethics.

Preparation as always, is the key. Having talent and being
committed to your employer won’t cut any mustard, if the
interviewer snags a juicy bit out of something you just said,
and tosses it back at you, only to be greeted with a blank stare
and stuttering.

It’s not what you want out of the job, it’s what you can bring
to the job.

Face it, you can be the most qualified (technically) candidate
on the planet, but you’re not going to get the position on that
alone. Do your homework and find out what the company wants in
the person who does get the job. What do they expect in the way
of job performance? How do they view initiative? Then when
you’re interviewed, give them a potential employee who has all
that and the technical skills. Because a successful interview is
not always about what you can tell them, but about what they
want to hear.

Employers want people who are not only going to keep the company
running, but who are going to take it to new levels of success.

You can tell an interviewer what you’re capable of, but how are
you going to sell them on your aptitude and attitude? Show them,
that’s how!

Don’t just say “I work well with others”, tell them how you
involved different departments in a cooperative effort to cut
waste within the office, and how your past employer benefited
from it, as well as how the company “team” enjoyed their joint

Never mind boasting that you have a nose for new things. Give
them a rundown (not a brag list) of new procedures that you
initiated, which resulted in more efficient operations at your
last job. Or tell them about the ideas you presented, which were
incorporated into the company marketing plan, resulting in
increased profits for the last year.

As stated in The Perfect Interview Book
(www.theperfectinterview.com) interviews are not just
fact-finding missions. Recruiters and company interviewers are
looking beyond the person in front of them, to find the right
one for the job. And the applicant who gives them a potential
employee with depths to be plumbed to the company’s benefit, is
the one who’s going to get that job.
