Best Interview Advice: Be memorable!

SM109406

Every time you walk in for a job interview, you think about how you will answer the questions to make a great impression on the recruiters. But every candidate going for that interview is trying to do exactly that: make a good impression. So, what should you do to be different? Be memorable! Do something so that the recruiters will remember you. By making a memorable impression, you will ensure that the recruiters have you in mind when they’re taking the decision on whom to hire.

Here are some ways you can be memorable during an interview.

1. Be enthusiastic

It is good to show your enthusiasm to your interviewers. But make sure that it is genuine! Nothing can be worse than faking enthusiasm. Most candidates come in with the intention of bagging the job without really caring about what the role is, what the company is like, etc. If you show that you are informed about the company, its work, its challenges, and its culture, it will convey that you are genuinely enthusiastic about the job.

2. Be yourself

Every candidate is unique. But in trying to create a good impression, candidates often forget to be themselves and start to behave and respond in the commonly prescribed ways. However, if you think that there are parts of your personality that make you stand out (like a sense of humour, or a good memory for details), don’t be afraid to let them be a part of your interview process. Being yourself is the best way to stand out and to be remembered.

3. Say thank you

Candidates often skip this step. But when you take the time to say thank you to the recruiters—even if it is just by sending a short SMS—it is a polite gesture that the recruiters receive positively. After all, they have given you their time. And if you thank them for it, they are likely to remember you.

So, the next time you go for a job interview, don’t forget to be memorable!
