A virtual interview gives you plenty of opportunities to leave a good and a bad impression on your interviewer.
Everyone worries about standing out from the crowd in an interview setting - and it’s suddenly much more difficult when you become a face on a screen.
The events of the past year have changed everything about the way we work - from how we communicate with each other to the clothes we wear to get things done. So of course, hiring managers have had to change their questions.
Don’t be caught off guard by this common interview question about your professional weaknesses. Take advantage of the opportunity to prepare a game-changing answer that turns the interview in your favor.
One of the most important steps during a career transition is developing a clear and concise professional brand. Many people struggle with this because they aren’t sure how to talk about themselves and they don’t want to feel “fake.”
When you get called for an interview, you might feel a mix of emotions including excitement, fear and probably everything else in between, but you should feel proud of yourself as getting in the door is an accomplishment in itself. But you also have to prepare realistically as this is where the hard work begins.
After a strong interview or a promising networking interaction, it’s best to send some form of follow-up as soon as possible. Not only is it polite, but it can also be a huge advantage to your job search.
