Jobco’s purpose is to present qualified professionals to rewarding employers, and to present rewarding employers to qualified professionals. When you do well, we do well. So remember:
Your Jobco Representative will give you as much information as possible regarding the prospective company and position. In many cases, Jobco has been working with the client and knows the company and position very well. Jobco will inform you about:
Prepare yourself for the interview by doing the following:
Appearance - Make sure you look like a business professional. Wear a suit if possible. Iron wrinkled clothes. Look clean and neat with trimmed hair/beard. Dress on the conservative side so as not to distract the interviewer from what you have to say.
Let the interviewer lead the conversation. Be a good listener and try not to interrupt.
Be friendly and participate. Be interactive and try to have an even exchange of dialogue if possible. Do not make the interviewer pull information out of you.
Make eye contact and keep it. Look the interviewer directly in the eye when speaking to them, and try to relax and smile.
Stick to business. Do not get too personal. Talk about what projects you have done recently and what skills you have learned from them. Talk about your recent seminars and/or schooling and what you learned from them.
Be positive at all times. Do not say anything negative about another position, person or company . . . including yourself. Negative comments give the impression you are making excuses and will not take responsibility for your actions.
Be truthful. Always be honest and state the facts. You are only jeopardizing your future career if you do not.
Sell Yourself! Be a sales person and sell your skills and tell why the company would benefit from your services.
Ask questions. An interview is two-way. This is your opportunity to interview them!
Salary, benefits, vacation or sick time should never be discussed on a first interview. Jobco will work with you and the client on these items after the interview.
Do not follow-up with the interviewer. All of your follow-up should be with Jobco. Remember, this is not like a regular interview. One of the main reasons companies use Jobco is to spend less time on the hiring process. If you want to send a thank you, ask your Jobco Rep if that would be appropriate. If so, they can mail it and/or get you the address.
Learn from it. Every chance you can, use interviews as practice for the “job of your dreams”. Go over in your head, what went well, and what you should have done differently, and write it down. Use it as a guide for your next interview.
