A job interview is not a test of your personality. Most people assume that an employer focuses on a candidate’s strengths, motivations, and aspirations. But this is a big mistake. Instead, they focus on what you can do for the company.
Remember, if you understand this and can discuss the employer’s issues in a way that can be resolved, your chances of success in the job interview will be greatly increased.
Start with your prospects – First, find out what they’re looking for:
MISSION: Why does problem solving create value?
VISION: Picture of Success – What does the solution look like?
1. TALENT – Innate, natural choices.
2. KNOWLEDGE – Acquired through learning.
3. SKILLS – Acquired through practice.
DESIRE: High achievers or passionate people…
ORGANIZATION: Alignment of individual behavior, relationships, attitudes, values, work environment and organizational culture.
There are 3 questions that are often asked in a job interview. (It is recommended to prepare before the interview)
1. Can you do this job? – 3 Situations/Actions/Results that highlight your strengths, required in any industry, will be the most important key to their challenges and pride.
2. Can you do your job with passion? – What do you value and what do you get pleasure from? Do what you are passionate about, what you value and enjoy.
3. Will it be difficult to work with you? – Understand organizational behavior, relationships, attitudes, values, and how to fit into the work environment.
You must put your employer’s needs and requirements first and put yourself second. Don’t just be someone who is energetic and enthusiastic, but someone who has the skills that can solve the problems facing the employer, and be the important person they are looking for.
