Interview like a pro

Are you an entrepreneur needing new employees? Ask yourself, “how should I conduct an interview?” Or are you on the other side of the table, studying your resumé and cover letter to create an impression on the desired company for a possible position? Either way, a great interview will allow you to learn more about candidates and let them know more about your company. Whether you have beginner, intermediate, or advanced interview skills, several steps will help you fully engage during your interview.

Most interviewees state that consistent body language provides an opportunity to convince the interviewer of your worth as a candidate. Interviews can be held one-on-one, as a group, virtually, or on a panel; human communication is best conveyed through body language, from simple gestures to facial expressions and proper posture. Understanding the STAR interview process can be effective for the interviewer. STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action, and Result of the situation you describe. For example, the question asked may explain the position you were in or the task you needed to accomplish, and you should answer your question with STAR. For those interviewing a future candidate, if you are not using the STAR method when answering your questions, you can use the STAR method to create follow-up questions or request more information from them. Asking questions is one of the most beneficial parts of an interview. More questions proposed to the applicant and the employer provide a better chance to help understand one another and can assist in determining the success level of the interview. Questions that intrigue and lead elaboration are most beneficial.
