When it comes to making a strong impression during a job interview, there are many things candidates need to consider. Perhaps most importantly, jobseekers need to be ready to offer compelling answers to a few tough questions. Here are a few things we ask about to learn as much as possible about potential additions to Team Benevolent Events.
Candidates need to prepare themselves to describe why they’re the best fits for an organization, especially when there are likely many other people being considered. The best approach for interviewees is to highlight their own unique skills and achievements with confidence. With real-life examples to back up their arguments, candidates can make stronger impressions.
It’s also common for interviewees to be asked where they see themselves in five years. When we pose this question to Benevolent Events interviewees, we simply want to know if they’re focused on constant improvement. If their responses reflect this type of commitment, we immediately feel more confident in their readiness to join our team.
Candidates might dread being asked about their weaknesses, but it’s an important question to ask. As long as people are honest with us, we’re intrigued by how they describe their shortcomings. We just want to know that an interviewee is taking action to improve on his or her weak areas.
Preparing to answer these questions will bolster interview performance. Find more of our interviewing advice by liking Benevolent Events on Facebook.
