An Interview Strategy: Telling Stories


Hi, how are you today? I would like to share a fantastic article about job interview. If you like this article, don't forget to share with your friends and family. 

A Job Interview Is Not an Interrogation   

If you read many books on job interviews, you'll notice that some feed you lists of interview questions that you should learn answers to. But an interview is not an interrogation; it's a conversation. Thus, I believe the best way to prepare for an interview is to come armed with a multitude of small stories about both your business and personal life.

Conversation Wins the Job
Competency-based interviews, as opposed to traditional interviews, have become more common today. In a traditional interview, the interviewer will ask you questions focused on whether you have the skills and knowledge needed to do the job. A competency-based interview goes further by asking you additional questions about your character and personal attributes that can better determine whether you fit their corporate culture. These are called "behavioral competencies."

A competency-based interviewer will spend about half the interview on your job skills, and about half on your behavioral competencies. He or she will be looking for evidence of how you have acted in real situations in the past. So having your stories ready to go, and discussing them during a conversation between two equals, plays very well for this type of interview.

The Interviewer's Priorities

An employer wants to find out:
• Are you an asset or liability? In other words, will you either make money or save money for the company?
• Are you a team player? Will you fit into the corporate hierarchy or be like sand in the gears? Can you take and give (if appropriate) orders?
• Will you fit into the company culture? They don't want prima donnas.

Your Story Strategy

The best way for an interviewer to get answers to the questions above is for you, the interviewee, to take the initiative. You should have several personal stories that you can tell as examples of your successes, and each story should last between 30 to 90 seconds.

You should start by developing your stories around these areas:
• Examples of when you either made money or saved money for your current or previous employer.
• A crisis in your life or job and how you responded or recovered from it.
• A time where you functioned as part of a team and what your contribution was.
• A time in your career or job where you had to overcome stress.
• A time in your job where you provided successful leadership or a sense of direction.
• A failure that occurred in your job and how you overcame it.
• Any seminal events that happened during your career to cause you to change direction and how that worked out for you.

Actions speak louder than words. Your actions in the past -- relayed in story form -- will tell a company much more than any generic response. Your stories will give the interviewer the tangible examples he or she seeks, and they will convey a very strong sense of your individuality, making you stand out more.

After submitting a job application, you get a chance to be called by the human resources staff for a job interview. You must be happy with the call, so you have to prepare yourself. Some tips that you might need to consider. If you are given a question as described below, then you need to consider the tips and answers you would have to say at the interview.  
1. How much salary do you ask?
Answer: Please indicate the magnitude realistic salary. Look the interviewer's eyes, specify the number, and stop talking. Do not lie about the salary you receive from your previous work (if you're already working). If you feel that your salary in an office that is now too small, give a reasonable explanation.
2. Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Answer: Draw a realistic position. About two-three positions on the position you are applying for now. Do not include the ideals that had nothing to do with your job application, for instance, want to be a soap star or become a novelist. Irrelevant answers show you'll appear out of focus.
3. What is your most notable strengths?
Answer: Select your potential relevant to the field of work you are applying for. Avoid generic response as acknowledgment that you are a hard worker. Better, give a response in the form of, "I have always been enslaved list of my own work. You can answer: Because, I do not want to go home before the completion of all work at the office. "
4. What are your most obvious shortcomings?
Answer: Do not tell me you're a perfectionist (indicating that you're a snob). Better to be honest and mention your weaknesses. For example, you are not so good in math, so you deal with a calculator.
5. Why would you want to leave your previous work?
Answer: Remember not to express negative information. If in fact it is, say the word 'positive', for example, that you do not see any 'space' in which you can grow. Then, explain why you think that the work in this new office gives a better chance.

6. Do you have a question?    
Answer: Give at least two questions that focused on the new office. For example, you ask if the office has had a website. Alternatively, you can also question the presence of the CEO that you know just elevated - is made ​​the better the company's performance, and the like. Do not ask about your own interests, for example, whether your career will flourish there.
7. When facing a job interview, remember that neatly dressed, wear deodorant if you have a problem with body odor. Half an hour before the interview remember to drink water and enjoy a mint candy that your mouth feels comfortable and free of bad breath.       Confidence and prayer before the job interview is the additional capital so that you succeed. If you've got a new job, remember with whom I drink coffee in a cafe on the corner of the street. I will also pray for you so that you will be more successful in the future.
