Worst Interviewing Techniques
  • Rambling on and on and on (The Board has no
    clue what your talking about)
  • Not giving a strong example (Fluff, Fluff and
    more Fluff)
  • No enthusiasm (a corpse would probably give a
    more upbeat interview, not motivated, too laid
    back)
  • Examples should be job related if possible and
    current
  • No eye contact with the Board member that is
    asking the question
  • Bad closing statement (Need job change because of
    injured back, want to work days instead of
    nights, dislike manager and not able to transfer
    out)
  • No closing statement or handshake

5
During Your Interview
  • Master the formal handshake
  • Smile
  • Be yourself
  • Listen to the questions and answer them honestly
  • Make good eye contact
  • Be confident and alert
  • Take each point in turn
  • Ask for clarification if necessary
  • If you dont know, say so
  • If you dont have the experience, say so
    (similar?)

6
During Your Interview
  • Dont give one-word answers
  • Stress achievements factually and sincerely
    (quantifiably)
  • Watch how you frame your responses
  • What you have versus what you dont have
  • Short, positive, focused on skills
  • Prepare/practice sound bites

7
At the end of the interview
  • When it is time to ask questions
  • Show what you know about the office/job (key
    points)
  • What are the primary tasks the person will do in
    this job?
  • What are the key skills they are looking for in
    this position?
  • Express real interest in the job (ask for the
    job)
  • Thank the interviewer/panel
