This month we are taking a look inside other people’s minds, namely the mind of your "interviewer" and your "boss." We know you’re not a mind reader, so hopefully this can help you to be prepared.
In our article, Things Interviewers Won’t Tell You, but You Need to Know, we take a close look at the "underbelly" of interviewing. If you think an interviewer only judges you on your abilities, you’re wrong. You are being assessed for everything, including what you say, how you act and what you wear. In speaking with countless recruiters in our community, we discover the many in and outs of the interview and the things recruiter’s assess job candidates on – some of which may be counterintuitive to what you believe, such as sometimes you might want to forego the sales pitch.
And in keeping with our theme, what does your boss think? Perhaps it’s time to read A Day in Your Boss’ Shoes – How it Can Help You Do a Better Job. This article takes you into the mind of your boss – looking at what they say and do – and the impact it has on you daily. It’s an interesting read.
So the next time you embark on an interview or get ready to meet with your boss, think about what it’s like living in their shoes. Trust us; you’ll be better prepared for your next meeting. Good luck!
