Job seekers on our consultations ask for an advice: what should they do in order to win a job competition. We always underline the significance of motivation to obtain this position. Summing up, if your CV was already selected by recruiter, you had received our call, – it means, your education, working experience, skills mostly are fit to the employer’s expectations. But during a meeting with recruiter you should demonstrate something else to persuade him to give you precedence.
Let’s show your motivation to work exactly on this position in this company. Win Sheffield from “The Five O’Clock Club”, the company that main specialization is carrier consulting, proves “an employer wants the candidate who wants only his company to be a working place”, “If candidate’s behavior looks frozen while a job interview, this candidate will behave himself at the same way on meetings with our clients, is it not acceptable”, tells Cynthia Bragdon, the owner of Urban Indigo.
Your motivation you can show in different ways:
– you can prepare the schedule of stories that will illustrate yours skills and way to react on tasks. It is better to use the descriptive form, not conclusions. Accurate conclusion will be made by recruiter,
– tell directly that you are extremely interested to obtain position in this company not another, are you dreaming to continue your professional way in this business sphere. For instance, our client, the brokerage company, had invited our candidate without sphere experience in the past to obtain they position. Before this candidate persuaded the employer, he came twice to job interviews from another city, telling while the interview that this sphere was always attractive for him and does not looking for other offers till will not receive the final company’s decision (as sure we should mention, this candidate had an appropriate skills according our testing evaluation and after job placement he did the best and finally had passed a trial period).
Besides job interview you can inquire they expectations “which candidate will be the best for your company”, also your motivation will be shown y respecting deadlines (if the home task was the one step of evaluation among other).
