Diligent job seekers spend hours creating resumes & cover letters, searching through job postings, reviewing classifieds and networking -- all in order to get an interview. Yet most of them don't know what to do when they get one! When the job market was booming it took an average of 3 interviews to get 1 job offer. Now it takes 17. The key is have a great interview, where the interviewer actually pictures you doing the job.
If you want to be that person, there's a little known secret you can put together for your next interview that literally forces the interviewer to picture you filling the position, and to visualize actually hiring you -- asap. Using this method guarantees you'll stand out from the crowd and shoot straight to the top of the "must hire" list. For more information, go to The Job Interview Secret.
Do your detective work before the interview
By Jimmy Sweeney, President of CareerJimmy and Author of the new, Job Interview "Secret"
You know what kind of job you want. A sales associate. An office manager. A legal secretary.
Whichever position suits your personality and skills, you'll have a better chance of landing it if you do a little detective work before the interview. Learn as much as you can about the company, its goals, as well as products and services. Then during the interview, you'll be ready to ask good questions, and to show how and why you're ideal for the job.
How To Research
1.Visit the company's web site to find out about its day-to-day business, employee benefits, mission statement, and customer service.
2.Consult the Thomas Register of American Manufacturers or other source at your public library to be sure the firm has a solid reputation.
3.Make a list of items you're interested in learning more about, including: history, financial stability, plans for growth.
4.Call the personnel department and ask for a brochure and other material that will help you decide whether this is the right company for you.
5.Read magazines such as Fortune, Business Week, and Wall Street Journal to learn more about the organization.
6.Google the company, look for job seeker forums and posts to get a feel for a particular business.
Take Care of Yourself
The more you know ahead of time, the better you'll feel before, during, and after the interview. And think about what a boost you'll give the interviewer. People who are prepared, peaceful, and professional are those most likely to win the job. So do your detective work and you'll be among them!
