Interviews - The Introduction
There are essentially four parts to the Introduction:
- How do I prepare for an interview?
- What should I say when I enter the interview room?
- What should I talk about during the interview introduction?
Well, once again, we're barely getting this out in time to call it an October cast. But, I think you'll find it worth the wait. This month, Mark and I want to share a cast from our upcoming Interviewing techniques product. This particular cast is one out of 14 casts on Interviewing. In this cast, you'll learn how to handle the crucial first five to ten minutes of any interview - Introductions.
It is absolutely true that this is a critical part of the interview - first impressions are being formed, and I'd bet 75% of interviewers have a strong indication of how it's going to go by the time this portion is done. That translates into our gut feeling that this is where 75% of technical interviewees fail. It's THAT important.
