How to impress the Interviewer

How to impress the Interviewer

The success of an interview would depend on the candidate’s ability to discover needs and empathize with the interviewer. You can do this by asking questions that verify your understanding of what the interviewer has just said,  without editorializing or expressing an opinion. By establishing empathy in this manner, you’ll be in a better position to  freely exchange ideas, and demonstrate your suitability for the job.

In addition to empathy, there are four other intangible fundamentals to a successful interview. These intangibles will  influence the way the candidate’s personality is perceived, and will affect the degree of rapport he shares with the  employer. He should not leave any doubt as to his level of interest in the job. You may think it’s unnecessary to do this,  but employers often choose the more enthusiastic candidate in the case of a two-way tie.

Employers look for people who love what they do, and get excited by the prospect of tearing into the nitty-gritty of the job.  No one likes a braggart, but the candidate who’s sure of his or her abilities will almost certainly be more favorably received.

Most employers are aware of how stressful it can be to interview for a new position, and will do everything they can to put  the candidate at ease.

There is a direct correlation between confidence and accomplishment. Personal and business success are directly linked  to one's perception of ability. The cycle goes like this: our confidence ( or lack of ) determines our potential ( or at least our perception of potential ), the potential we perceive determines the action that we take, and how much conviction and certainty are carried with that action. The result we get from that action will in turn affect our confidence ( a good result will increase confidence and bad result may decrease it ).

But the cycle can be skewed in our favor. Confidence is a state of mind; it can be cultivated just like any other talent and it is a conscious decision that we make to improve the quality of our life.
