Check out our President, Matt Warzel, on Lucas Connolly’s RecruitMilitary Live Webcast: Job Interviews: From Good to Great
My quick tip for military members in transition to civilian employment: an interview provides an opportunity for a job seeker and hiring manager to find out if they are a match. Want to ace your next interview and land that open job you’ve been seeking? During this next episode of RecruitMilitary LIVE, we will be speaking with career expert Matt Warzel once again to gain some insight on how to go from a good to a great interview with a few tips and tricks.
🇺🇸 I was fortunate to be featured on this episode of RecruitMilitary LIVE with the awesome and talented Lucas Connolly, where we discussed turning a good resume into a great resume. Some of the topics we tackled included:
🪖 For a GREAT interview, no matter video or in-person, confidence is key and I think personally the #1 way to exude that confidence is having knowledge. Going into the interview so prepared, high-hanging slider-type questions seem like four-seam fastballs.
🎖️ For a GREAT interview, research the role, investigate the industry, major players, products/offerings/services, and news. Learn the terminology and respective process impact in this new role. Understand the function your new role would play in the entire operations.
🇺🇸 For a GREAT interview, learn why is there an opening? What pain points do the hiring managers have because of the opening? How can you make their lives easier if they hired you?
🪖 For a GREAT interview, understand not only the achievements and accomplishments you can bring into the new role (and ensure to tie these into nice little quick narratives whether it’s shown through a project, success story, etc.), but most importantly, what value do you offer?
If you are equipped with this knowledge, the interview should be a piece of cake.
Remember, they want you to be the right fit. They’re busy people and have regular projects to tend to. This hiring process forces them to stop what they’re doing and focus solely on staffing.
Trust me, they’d rather be doing day-to-day stuff. So know that you’re in the room for a reason. They think you could be the right fit. Now convince them of this using your knowledge and confidence.
