Three top tricks of successful job seekers The Globe and Mail In a decade of recruiting for countless sales and marketing jobs spanning numerous industries and locations, there is a reliable stable of tricks I've seen job seekers use to put...
I've been an executive recruiter for 30 years. I am still shocked that executive level candidates causally prep for interviews by going to a company's website and doing a superficial Google Search. Then they show up, wing it, and wonder why they were never asked back.
The author of this article calls them tricks - I call not doing it: Stupidity! Here's what the author of the article had to say about doing research:
"Set yourself apart by digging into as much recent history of the company as you can find (such as recent earnings reports for public firms, press releases and social media profiles, articles in the media about the company and the industry)."
Are you willing to blow it by not spending a few minutes setting yourself apart from your research? You would never wing it or do it superficially for a project at work - why would you do it on an important job interview.
This is the NUMBER ONE complaint I hear back from hiring managers, executives, and CEOs about their interviews with you.
