Unless you are one of the few mortals left on Earth who will be employed by only one business for the duration of your existence, you’ll soon be subject to another job interview.
When your occupation circumstances change, you have to go out and look for a new job. Once you land that job interview, you have to be cognizant of the interview trap, questions asked by the interviewer prepared to get you to let slide your temperament.
There are basically three approaches the interviewer uses to get a little deeper into your personality.
The primary technique is when an interviewer goes pessimistic. They may pick out one aspect of the job and pretty much talk bad about it. It may be anything associated with the job, such as travel, number of working hours, or working surroundings. The interviewer is paying attention to see if you correspond with their assessment. The way to deal with this technique is to stay positive, always answer questions in a manner that states you see no problem with dealing with whatever is thrown your way.
Another technique you may see in a job audience is the name dropping trap. If your interviewer knows your industry or your previous employer, they may throw out the name of somebody you may know and may have worked with in the past. Keep your person is someone you have worked with, go ahead and admit it, but keep your opinion of that person to yourself. The interviewer is trying to see if you like to gossip.
The Deep Dig
Towards the end of the interview, you may be subject to the dig deep technique. This is where the interviewer ask you if there is anything else they should know about to assist them in their hiring decisions. The incorrect approach to answer this question is to state the obvious try not to give a generic answer such as “I work harder than anybody else.” Prepare for this question before the interview. Think about one or two things that help explain why you applied for this position and why you want this position, try not to sound desperate.
Understand that the interviewer is trying to trip you up and see how you handle pressure make sure you know how to deal with these situations.
