We’ve held our fair share of job interviews through the course of Signature, Inc’s ongoing growth. Through our experiences, we’ve found that the most impressive candidates do a few things that help them prepare to impress hiring managers. Here are the actions every jobseeker should take to make strong impressions on potential employers.
One good way to ensure a positive impression is to ask for the names and roles of everyone you’ll be meeting with on the day of the interview. From there, you can research these people through LinkedIn and the company website. With some common ground already in mind, you’ll be able to ask more insightful questions.
Of course, it pays to do plenty of homework on the company itself. We’re always impressed when a candidate knows a lot about Signature, Inc and the challenges we face in the marketplace. Having this kind of information allows interviewees to make stronger cases for themselves as ideal fits.
Being prepared also means having a strong elevator pitch ready to go. If people can concisely explain why they’re good fits for our unique work culture, we’re more likely to feel comfortable adding them to our team. Knowing the job description well is essential in making a compelling argument.
Candidates who apply these strategies always impress our hiring managers.
