Kelly's Resume/Career Tip of the Week
TWO INTERVIEW TURNOFFS ACCORDING TO CLIENT FEEDBACK: There are a lot of ways an interview can go badly, here are two common and needless ways to blow it. One surefire mistake is to ask about money and perks during the first interview. I can’t imagine how often this happens when candidates interview on their own, even after I prep candidates not to, they sometimes still do. When you quickly make it all about money; loyalty, ethics and career focus come into question. Another quick way is saying I am happy, but I always entertain better offers, or I wasn’t looking but your internal recruiter or a headhunter called me. That you weren’t looking is great and a plus, saying it sounded a like an excellent opportunity, I wanted to learn more, will position you much stronger. Making it sound like you are doing them a favor sends the message you are wasting their time for an ego stroke, rather than advancing your career. The focus, especially on the front end, is the opportunity and what you can do to solve their pain - period. When you make the interview about you, and not your career and the company interviewing you, it is a massive turnoff and a terrible negotiating tactic.
