Prepare to back up claims in job interviews

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

You’ll bowl over hiring managers by researching their companies so that you can mention three positive facts about their operations. But don’t start by saying, “I’ve heard some great things about the company.” Instead, cite your sources (from a glowing article in a trade journal to a company insider who gave you permission to use his name). If you say “I’ve heard ...,” sharp interviewers will ask, “Oh, who told you that?” Stammering a vague answer (“It’s just something I picked up in passing”) will undermine your credibility.
