So you made it through the phone screening and initial round of interview and now you have to prove that, from the preselected candidates, you are the best option.
How can you do that? Former Fortune 500 Executive, Lisa Quast, suggests that 2 simple tips will make you lead the candidate options and be considered as the best professional to be selected for the aspired job:
Tip #1: Come prepared with examples of previous work and be able to explain why your work was successful.
This demonstrates to the hiring manager that you understand how and why things work or do not work – why certain tactics had a direct impact and others did not. Just be sure not to share anything that is company confidential.
Tip #2: Provide the hiring manager with specific reasons why you are the candidate they should hire.
This is helpful because when a hiring manager has narrowed down a candidate pool to a short list, they already know each candidate on this list is qualified for the position – what they’re now looking for are reasons why to hire one candidate over another.
