When interviewing applicants, it’s important for supervisors to discover the person’s skill level and to see if they’d be a good fit for the organization. But it’s also important for the interviewer to exude positive energy and let the candidate know that this is a great place to work.
That’s why everyone who comes in contact with prospective job candidates, from receptionists to hiring managers, must think of themselves as salespeople at times. Here are tips to help achieve that goal:
- Exude enthusiasm for your job. No one wants to work for a company where people are unhappy. Convey to the candidate what you love about your job, the company and co-workers. Smile and let your personable side show.
