Get The Job By Becoming An Insider
NEW YORK, NY – During a “Career Transitions” interview with Peter Clayton on Total Picture Radio, recruiting industry veteran Beth Ross provides a wealth of interview training information. Dr. Ross told Mr. Clayton, “The purpose of any interview is not to get a job — it’s to get the next meeting. You are on stage. It’s a performance! And, you must be prepared.”
Your strategy should be to become an insider within the organization you’re interviewing with. You can do this with all of the tremendous resources available on the Internet. Your goal should be to know everything you can about the company, its competitors, leaders, and challenges. That’s how you become an insider, able to transition to a new industry, or new career.
A few excellent interview tips were provided: Prepare as if you are going on stage, knowing your lines and having a clear strategy for winning. The basic interviewing techniques include: Developing your lines. In an interview, an inability to express oneself clearly is worse than a lack of experience. Write down answers to the following: The main reason the employer would want to hire you; What you have to offer in the way of experience, credentials, and personality; A statement of why you would want to be.
