First Impression Tips for Interviews

It’s essential to make a strong first impression when you’re interviewing for a new job. We’ve interviewed a wide range of candidates through Simplified Marketing Solutions’ ongoing growth, so we know what it’s like to be impressed by someone right off the bat. Here is one simple strategy jobseekers can use to make sure they’re remembered by hiring managers.

The first step is to brainstorm how you would answer the typical, “Tell me about yourself,” prompt. Think about personal details that will help you stand out from other candidates. This could be a hobby, an important life event, or what inspires you to perform at your best.

From there, it’s important to gather as many concrete details as possible to make the unique, personal information you’re sharing as memorable as possible. The more specific the story you share, the more likely you’ll stick out in a hiring manager’s mind further down the road.

When we interview potential additions to Team Simplified Marketing Solutions, we like to hear these personal details related to how they’ll help someone thrive with our firm. Whatever you do, make sure the hobbies, interests, or achievements you share with your interviewer reflect something important about how you approach your work. Being open to new challenges is a good example of a trait you could communicate through your response.

We like to hear candidates express what makes them unique. Find more of our best tips for interview success by liking Simplified Marketing Solutions on Facebook.
