BOOK SYNOPSIS

BOOK EXCERPTS
INTERVIEW LIKE A PRO


âₓSo, let’s look at the nuts and bolts of an interview. The interview is your first date, and you probably know what a first date feels like. No one wants to be on a date with a stick in the mud. We prefer someone who is enthusiastic; someone who is pleasant to be around; someone whose company we can enjoy and who seems to be enjoying our company, as well.
Interviewers want the same thing on their first date—they want to enjoy you. People hire people they like before they hire people equally as qualified that they don’t like; never doubt this fact. Whatever traits you have that make people like you and make it easy for you to make friends—those are the traits you should let show during your interview. Be enthusiastic, smile, laugh at the jokes, don’t be that stick in the mud no one wants to be on a date with.
Would you go out on a second date with someone who made you feel uncomfortable on the first one? Not if you’re like most people. The interview is as much about your skills and abilities as it is about your personality. The truth is no one hires someone that makes them feel uncomfortable. People who are overly aggressive or overbearing, who look like they haven’t smiled since the ‘50s, who can’t look another person in the eye, who have body odor or bad breath tend to make people uncomfortable.
Interviewers are trying to find good workers as much as they are trying to find a good match for the community of workers they already have. If you make the interviewer feel uncomfortable, you won’t get invited into the community—it’s as simple as that. Think about it, when was the last time you met someone and said to yourself, âₓThis guy makes me feel uncomfortable. I think I’ll invite him home to meet my family”—it just doesn’t happen!”
