Imagine that you are about to interview for a job. You want to do well and land the position. You are about to enter the interview room. Now, ask yourself these questions:
Take a moment to think about this reality.
When you walk into your next job interview, you are one in a line of people interviewing for the same job. Only one person will get the offer.
There is a good chance that when they are going through their notes and deciding who to hire, someone will refer to you be asking, "Now, which person is this?"
If you want to CRUSH your next job interview, you need to consider your mindset, behaviors, and choices.
Here's a run down of what each it looks like to meet, exceed, anticipate, and establish expectations in your next interview.
1. Meet expectations:
2. Exceed expectations:
3. Anticipate expectations:
4. Establish expectations:
You may or may not get an offer. That's okay.
If they offer you a job - take it. They value you and your approach. You will likely thrive in the culture.
If they don't offer you a job - be good with it. Move on...it wasn't a good fit. In the long-run, you would've likely been disappointed.
In most situations, meeting, exceeding, anticipating, or establishing expectations is a choice!
It starts with you choosing how much you are willing to prepare, practice, perform and put it out there.
Now go and CRUSH it!
Over the years, I've had the chance to interview and hire a lot of people. My first hiring experience occurred at KPMG Consulting when I was looking to expand my team. More recently, as the owner of a consulting firm with offices in three states and an ever growing staff, I made hiring decisions for 11 years as we experienced tremendous growth.
