As the best staffing agency New York has to offer, A List Associates is happy to walk you through some of the best tips and tricks for interviewing in 2021. It is no secret that the world has changed in almost every way since the onset of 2020. There is precovid life and postcovid life with little in-between. Interviewing and applying for jobs has not been immune to this shift. Below are a few of the best tips for keeping up with your interview skills in 2021.
- Dissect The Job Posting: Make sure that you thoroughly read the description and the qualifications. This allows you to know how to present yourself to the best of your ability during the interview. By thoroughly reviewing the job posting you immerse yourself in the person that the company is looking to hire. You will want to make sure that you will also enjoy being this person.
- Practice Elevator Pitch: Your personal elevator pitch should resemble a compelling trailer to an upcoming movie you are excited to see. Since so many interviews are now taking place on Zoom, consider prerecording your elevator pitch and playing it back to yourself to help you improve. Be ready to answer questions such as, “Why are you right for this position?” or “Why do you want to work for our company?”
- Tell A Compelling Story: Many interviewers will forget the little details of the interview but they will remember large takeaways. Tell a detailed story about a time where you handled a high-stress situation and make it as job applicable as you can.
