Top Tips from Professional Recruiters 

Stand out as the top candidate in your next interview.

Congrats, you got an interview!  Now, it’s important to stand out effectively to be a top candidate. Your resume has gotten you to the interview stage, but your ability to land the job will be dependent on how you convey yourself throughout the interviews. Remember to be engaging and enthusiastic!  

The best interviews feel just like conversations.

Tip #1: Align your experience to the job description

A good interview is an interview where you feel well-prepared. One of the best ways to prepare is to look at the job description of the role that you’re interviewing for and align the responsibilities in the job descriptions to your own experience

During the interview, highlight examples from your experience that directly correlate to the skills and responsibilities of this position. You are exemplifying why you’re the perfect match.  

Our Tips For Interview Success

Tip #2: Showcase your personality

If you’ve made it to the interview stage, that means the hiring manager has already reviewed your resume and wants to learn more. Your resume already conveys your experience and technical skills, but it doesn’t convey your whole self. The interview is your opportunity to showcase your personality and demonstrate what makes you unique i.e., your motivation, confidence or leadership skills. 

Especially in a competitive job market, this is ultimately what will set you apart from other candidates and make a lasting impression on the interviewer. 

Tip #3: Be enthusiastic!

Although we’d all love for our interview process to be short and sweet. It’s likely that you’ll need to go through many interviews in your job search. It’s important to bring the same level of enthusiasm to the tenth interview as you do the first. Treating every opportunity like it’s your dream role helps keep your mindset positive. Every interview is an opportunity to meet someone new and tell your story. 

Enthusiasm is contagious. Bring a positive mindset to every interview. 

Have you heard that good interviewing just takes practice? It’s true!  Interviewing is just like everything else, the more confidence you have, the better you will perform.  As recruiters in the industry for decades, this is what we see successful candidates do best.   

I would like to thank you for all the guidance and support throughout the process. Being new to the US job market, the insights shared by you and Eric were extremely valuable.
