Job Interview Mistakes To Avoid: 3 Rules

do you feel overqualified for the job
that you’re hired for won today’s video I’m going to teach you job interview
mistakes to avoid with three simple rules to prevent you from getting a job
offer that is in the wrong level and this will take you a step back from your
career growth if this is the first time meeting my name is Holly
I’m a certified career coach I have helped thousands of individuals at
Amazon Google and startup consider subscribing hit the bell notification so
you don’t miss an episode every Tuesday 85% of Americans took the career
statistic that they are unhappy at the current job so let me walk you through
my three simple rules and also before we start with that give you a bonus tip to
avoid being part of that 85% let’s get you a hundred percent ready
for that job interview that you’ve been waiting on either you are a people
manager or an individual contributor you have to know what you want prior to
going to the job interview this is like the most common mistake that I’ve seen
in my career what do you need to get from point A to
point B for example if I am a program manager and I’m interested in a position
to be a senior program manager and I have been a PM for six years now it’s
time for me to move up right so what do I need in the next employer for the next
role so that I can get the career growth that I want so you need to be able to
ask yourself those questions let’s talk about my real number one your superpower
your superpower are your key skills preferably your unique skills that
differentiate you from others as yourself these questions what are your
top three strings that differentiate you how will your soup
powers impact employer I also wanted to recommend my video on sixty second
elevator pitch in that video there will be a step-by-step template to walk you
through in how you can create a compelling story to share for the
interviewer rule number two research prior to the interview you should
absolutely do homework on the employer know everything about their products and
services specifically the team that you will be joining you can find a lot of
this information on Glassdoor as well and if you defer back to my
sixty second elevator pitch I actually did a tutorial and walking you through
on how to use Glassdoor for research ok another thing is your position and the
scope the scope can be very different from the job description now
professionals keep in mind that often time job descriptions are vague for a
reason because employer have to meet compliance and most of the time the work
that they’re working on can be confidential and they can’t miss too
much on their okay so you wanted to make sure that as the recruiter is prepping
you for the on-site interviewed and I’m hoping that your recruiter does ask them
to know as much information about the team environment or the technologies
that are in the technical environment as much as possible one of my favorite
questions of asking an employer is you know what is your expectation for
somebody in this role that is not listed in the job description okay you wanted
to make sure just by either the recruiter or the hiring managers
responds you could be able to tell are you making a lateral move or is this
something that you feel there’s potential for you to grow let me know
what any of you questions you have the most challenge answering let’s move on
with rule number three call to action now remember professionals the hiring
manager have already seen your resume and most likely your LinkedIn profile as
well so call to action is really the finding on now that you are in front of
the hiring managers you need to be able to sell yourself to get the position
that you want I have seen that individuals would accept position
because they are either out of a job for a while and they really want to get
their feet back into the market without thinking that that can actually take a
couple step backward so there’s a way to go around that I’m more than happy to
answer your question settle for position that you feel that you’re overqualified
for just because you haven’t worked in a year two years or three years it’s
really important to be able to tell a story as to why and how strong was your
credential prior to taking a little time off if you liked this video give me a
thumbs up and share thank you so much for watching I’ll see you next week bye
