As a professional career coach, I find myself repeating the “basics” of a good interview. Everyone seems to know things like you shouldn’t speak negatively about past employers or that you should be properly dressed. But have you ever seen an interview from the employers’ point-of-view?
Over the next few weeks, we are going to show you how some of these train wrecks play out in mock interview situations. Hopefully you can see how detrimental bad behavior can be, and understand why you wouldn’t want to follow their bad example.
Our 5-part video series will show you:
- The selfish candidate who is clearly not thinking about how she comes across to the interviewer.
- The shy and nervous candidate whose non-verbal communication sinks her chances for the job.
- The “Too-Much-Information (TMI)” candidate who volunteers waaaay more than any company needs to know.
- A strong candidate who hits all of the RIGHT notes to make a positive impression.
- The crazy interviewer. Yes, sometimes the problem is not the candidate! Check out how to handle the illegal interview questions – and possibly inappropriate advances. Definitely a good sign you do not want to work for that company…
I’m sure these entertaining videos give you some insight on simple ways to do better in an interview. Here is the link to the first video of the series regarding the selfish candidate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzA2yZztpYs&feature=youtu.be
