How to Ace the Interview
Job interviews can certainly be intimidating and nerve-wracking, yet how we use that finite window of time that can really make a huge difference to our careers and sometimes even our lives.
Whether it’s your dream job at stake or one you’re not so sure about, make no mistake, you owe it to yourself to perform to the best of your ability. And this week’s ‘How To’ episode explains why.
The people we work with around the world regularly ask us for advice and support going through their interview process. So we decided it’s time to share some of our tried and tested tips and frameworks, as well as share special ‘insider’ contacts and content, with you now as well in this episode.
Not only will we walk through our key interview tips, you’ll also hear invaluable insider advice from leading Russell Reynolds executive search consultant and Managing Director in Australia, Nick Fletcher.
Plus we also bring you Caitriona Staunton who’s Improbable’s Director for People Ops, responsible for recruiting hundreds of people a year in the UK. She’s previously headed up recruitment in Asia Pacific at tech unicorn, Atlassian, as well as worked at Google internationally so really knows her stuff.
You may be surprised by what they both share.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- The key pre-work we recommend you do before your interview
- What the experts say on how to give yourself an amazing advantage before the interview even starts
- What internal hiring managers look for during the interview; and
- How to manage your nerves and perform at your best once the interview begins.
We all have to do interviews at some point and who knows, something you hear today could make all the difference for your next one!
