What Applicants Say In Interviews That Can Get Them Hired

The most irresistible job applicants marry their emotional intelligence with competency based answers in their job interviews to impress on all levels. These applicants understand an interview isn't an interrogation but an interactive platform for interviewer and interviewee to arrive at the same station - and feel good about it.What Applicants Say In Interviews That Can Get Them Hired

While there are a range of processes to understand about behavioural interviews, I will focus here on three pointers compelling candidates understand about their job interview and what they say that highlights their emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is not 'faking' it, it is articulating your genuine positive insights in a purposeful and advantageous way. It is putting your best foot forward and using a smart approach, that indeed is useful both inside the interview and in life.

Successful applicants are incredibly passionate about the job at hand - and prove it.
You are a high quality candidate with a history of excellence in your chosen field, or as a newbie you showcase your potential and willingness to be great at your job. Passion, enthusiasm, zeal, cannot-wait-to-get-the-offer-and-get-started, or any way you want to put it - is undeniably magnetic.
Show off your fervour in a way that translates to "I will be on top of my game in this role". Anyone can say "I would love this opportunity" without explaining why. In fact, a user of this phrase probably uses it in every interview they're asked to, and interviewers remain untouched by this cliche. Why not suggest your enthusiasm by the questions you fire back with?

A sample of questions that impress upon your passion:
  • "What would you expect me to have achieved in my first 3 months on the job?"
  • "Can you tell me about the upcoming projects / campaigns in your company?"
Irresistible applicants come across as someone others would love to work with.
In focusing on facts and figures, don't forget the 'likeability' factor. Sometimes the person most qualified for the job misses out because the interviewer didn't warm to them and didn't feel the team would, either. The most skilled candidates practice empathy with their interviewer, understanding they are only human with their own social needs to fit in, to be understood and respected, and use this bias to their advantage.
Ways to be charming in an interview:
  • Make the interviewer feel comfortable by being warm and even humorous if the occasion calls for it.
  • Think of the interviewer as someone you know, talk to them as if you genuinely like and respect them. They will feel this warmth and be confident that the team will to.
  • Speak about your greatest achievements, in a modest tone. Let your achievements speak for themselves.
  • Be interactive and ask questions of your own. People often say they don't get the chance; but when you are answering a question, the floor is all yours to fire away with your own.
  • Don't be combative, boastful, cold or disengaged - the most superhumanly intellectual of candidates can lose the opportunity just by being unlikeable.
The best candidates aren't reserved about complimenting the company at hand.
Stipulate your admiration for the company's initiatives, campaigns, projects, presentation, vibe, vision - anything you genuinely like about the company. Compliment the company.
When answering questions, feel welcome to talk about past relevant experiences and then inject what you like about the company's matching initiatives.

For example:
"I volunteer with an NGO that helps rescue victims of human trafficking, and was actively involved in my previous company's campaign to stop child trafficking. I'm so excited that you have projects now in Europe involved in this - it's such an important global initiative that attracted me to applying for this position. I'd love the opportunity to be on board with what you're doing there."

Just by using some emotional intelligence to target your answers and build rapport on a range of levels, you are able to get greater insight into the position and company and find out if it's right for you, as well as being able to sit in a very comfortable position.

Of course, there are exceptions in some cultural climates, but in general this is how the best of candidates do it. This is not enough in itself to get you hired, but by putting your best social foot forward and having that correlate with your suitability for the position, correctly answering competency based questions and highlighting your fit within the company culture, you are giving yourself the utmost chance for success.

How To Answer The Question, “Why Have You Been Unemployed For So Long?”

The news is littered with stories of unemployed job seekers who can’t seem to find a new job. Some employers even admit to not considering a candidate if they are unemployed, opting for already-employed job seekers instead. While we abhor that kind of policy, it’s important for unemployed job seekers to understand how their unemployment might affect their job search, and how to handle — and prepare for — the dreaded question, “Why have you been unemployed for so long?”How To Answer The Question, “Why Have You Been Unemployed For So Long?”


Of course, there are the obvious answers — the economy is recovering very slowly, certain industries have been hit hard, there are millions of people competing for jobs, etc. But employers are looking for more personal answers, and answers that display your values, thought process, and overall outlook on life. No pressure, right?

Sara Sutton Fell the CEO and Founder of FlexJobs.com stated some ideas for handling this type of question in your job search:
1. Answer the question directly and proactively. Don’t try to avoid the question. First, let the employer know that you are passionate about your profession and have not been applying to any and every job. Then, talk about your background and experience, and let the employer know that you understand your competition is tough, but that what sets you apart from other job seekers are x, y, and z.

2. Have other professional activities to talk about. While job searches can take lots of time, it’s important to demonstrate to employers that you have been doing other professionally-related activities during your unemployment. In addition to looking for work, you should be prepared to talk about the other activities you’ve been a part of, for example, volunteering, taking classes,  and/or attending professional events.

3. Consider sharing personal accomplishments. Similar in nature to the previous tip, in many cases it’s appropriate to discuss personal accomplishments that you’ve achieved in your time off. This can help employers get a better sense of who you are and how you set goals for yourself. For example, during your time off from work maybe you really wanted to get healthier so you’ve had a goal to run 1000 miles this year, and so far you’re at 856, or you made a list of 5 things you have always wanted to do but hadn’t had time for when you were working (create a family tree, volunteer at your children’s school, learn how to play the guitar, help raise money for a charity you believe in, etc.).

4. Stay positive. Employers are aware of the grim situation for job seekers, but now is not the time to unload the frustration or negativity you may be feeling because of your unemployment. Employers want to hire positive people — people who actively demonstrate resolve, fortitude, and optimism.  You know, those who make lemonade out of lemons!

By preparing to answer this question and other difficult interview questions ahead of time, you’re much more likely to make a solid impression with any potential employer.  Good luck!

Top 8 Reasons You're Still Unemployed

1. Your CV is not effective
If you’re not getting invitations for interviews, then you need to have a second look at your CV. Since you do not get to meet the employer in person before the interview, your CV should be packaged in such a way that the employer will be convinced beyond every doubt that you can get the job done. It must therefore highlight your skills, qualification and experience. It should also be properly formatted and error-free. Your CV is your best marketing tool so put in your time and efforts to make it look the best it possibly can.Top 8 Reasons You're Still Unemployed

2. You interview poorly
You may be surprised to hear that some individuals chewing gums at interviws. That does not show good manners. Some other reasons that could make you fail an interview is arriving late to the venue, poor dressing, arguing with the interviewer and telling lies.

3. You have a bad attitude
Most people think employers are only interested in an applicant’s skills and qualification. That’s not true. Attitude is equally important. Will You recruit a person with excellent skills, qualification, knowledge and experience but lacks the right attitude? I guess your answer is NO.
If you’re rude or have a repugnant attitude, you may not be able to hide it from the interviewer. Don’t forget that some people being an interviewer or not, have the ability to see beyond your fancy suit to your real person.

4. You can’t communicate effectively
Most applicants stay longer than necessary in the labor market simply because they lack the requisite verbal and written communication skills employers are looking for. Evaluate yourself. If that’s where your problem lies, it’s never too late for a turn around. The best way to become fluent in your communication is to practice. Read as much novels and watch as much English films as you can. Take note of unusual words and check up the correct pronunciation, usage and spellings in the dictionary, and use them often as appropriate. Avoid pidgin English...Click here to continue

Top 10 Things You Should Not Say During a Job Interview

Avoid the Wrong Answer!
Many job candidates are nervous about participating in a job interview. After much hard work in writing countless resumes, cover letters, and job applications, these individuals hope that they will interview well, impress the hiring officer of the company to which they have applied, and finally get hired. Top 10 Things You Should Not Say During a Job Interview

With some practice and preparation, employment interviewing need not be a mystery or a horror. In fact, it can be enjoyable, informative, and even fun. In addition, every interview that you complete will make you more practiced in the art of interviewing. By continuing to interview for jobs, you will learn the range of variety of questions and scenarios that may confront you. Then you will be better prepared to win the job of your dreams!


Inappropriate Responses
There are many different comments that are inappropriate to make during a job interview, but be assured that these number more than 10 things not to say — There are probably 100s of different inappropriate comments made in interviews across the land every week.

Experiencing a work readiness class or mock interviewing class or workshop can be a big help in knowing what to say and what not to say during interviews.

The Top 10 of the worst things to say in a job interview are listed below, gathered from my workforce development assignments with employers in my area.

There are also things that your potential employers’ representatives should not say to you or ask you. In addition, some questions are simply illegal to ask any job candidate in an interview.

Your Interview is Calling, But Please Don’t Say…

1. “How much does the job pay?”
Some applicants ask this question before the interviewer has a chance to even ask his or her own first question and this is a big mistake.

To ask about money first makes it seem as if all you are after is money, possibly with as little work as possible.

As a rule, wages and salaries are not discussed during the first interview. If they are discussed, this will occur at the end of the session and usually via the interviewer asking what salary you expect. Give a range of salaries you can accept, rather than a fixed amount so that you do not limit your earning capabilities too tightly.

You may have three interviews altogether with one company. If money is discussed, it is up to the interviewer from the company to open up that subject. If he asks you how much money you want, have a range of salaries ready to provide. First, however, research how much the job you want really pays in your town and state, then come up with a range of a yearly salary to request. Look at Salary.com for help with this.

EXAMPLE: Let’s say an auto mechanic makes N135,000 a year in your city after working five years. When you apply to become an auto mechanic, state the range of pay you want as N132,000 – N138,000 a year, or similar. Or you could use a broader range, like N130,000 – N150,000 a year. Make sure it is a realistic range. For example, if a fast food full-time grill man in your town usually makes N13,000 per year, don’t interview at that restaurant and ask for N20,000 – N30,000 per year.

2. “What does your company make (or do)?”
A job candidate must research the company for which they want to work before going into a job interview. Look the company up on the Internet and read as much as you can about it and take notes. Many company websites feature tabs for About and History, so make sure to read them. Try to find the company’s Annual Report and read it. Your local libraries can help you do that.

3. Do not use SLANG words or phrases in your job interview.
The interview is not a casual conversation with friends on a street corner or in a lounge.

The interview is a formal conversation and requires the use of good English grammar — There is not time enough during an interview for the interviewer to figure out what you are talking about. On the other hand, even if they do understand you, you are being disrespectful and overly casual in the interview by using slang. You will also sound like you are playing and not serious about doing good work, and the interviewer won’t take you seriously. Just don’t do it.

4. “What can you do for me; what are the benefits like vacations, promotions and bonuses?”
Hiring officers and job interviewers like job candidates with self-confidence, but they do not like people who are selfish.

The first interview you have with a company is all about what you can do for THEM. You are not doing them a favor by interviewing with them, so keep these questions until the second interview or until the interviewer opens up the subject.

The interviewer will ask you why the company should hire you and then you can more fully emphasize your skills, talents and contributions you have to offer them. Be prepared to tell clearly what specific ways you have helped your former employers.
Never Curse In a Job Interview

5. Eliminate profanity and cursing of any kind.
You must never curse, cuss, or use any kind of profanity in any job interview.
Profanity includes scatological references like the the word p_ssed, as in “p_ssed off.” That is cursing by using references to bodily functions and it is profanity.
In addition, do not say “damn”, “hell”, the F-word, or the N-word.
In addition, women are women and not “girls” or “‘hos.”

Words Show Your Character
Here is some positive verbal presentation advice that works, from the top salesman, employer, and motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar:

“The truth is, our language does betray us. Our words are a direct reflection of our thoughts and anyone who is incapable of expressing him- or herself without the use of profanity is handicapping themselves to an incredible degree.

Vulgar, violent, improper language or coarse, racist, sexist jokes will limit opportunities in the choice of a mate, the selection of a job, the building of a career, and the establishment of friendships.
The message is clear: Learn the language rules; practice them in your everyday life.”
