Ep 626 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses connecting with an interviewer.

Summary

One of the classic pieces of job hunting advice Is to make a connection with the interviewer. That doesn't mean you talk about your respective tennis games, even if that is something on their LinkedIn profile that's something that you can file a way to talk about in the course of the interview IF IT COMES UP. What it really means is how you interact with this person. How do you talk with them as an equal, not as though they are a superior and you are an inferior.

That's the whole game plan – – to be relaxed and calm with this individual as a peer would be, as a friend would be. I'm not saying crack jokes throughout. The idea to talk with them as an equal Is pivotal for you to demonstrate that way of connecting with them.

At the end of the day, you may not get hired because you don't have the skills that they are looking for. That's fine. When there is a tiebreaker, what they are looking for is that connection.. When looking for that tiebreaker, they want to see someone who they like being with. Someone who they can trust. That's what the connection really allows them to do. It allows them to feel comfortable with you so they have a choice between you and the shy one with equal skills, they will pick you each time.

Do you really think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.

Ep 653 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses connecting with an interviewer.

Connecting with the interviewers you meet with are often the tiebreaker between potential hires

Summary

One of the classic pieces of job hunting advice is to make a connection with the interviewer. That doesn't mean that you talk about your respective tennis games, even if that's on their LinkedIn profile. That's something that you can file away if it comes up in the course of conversation (Key phrase: IF it comes up in the conversation).

What really means is how you interact with this person? How do you talk with and has an equal? Not as an inferior being talked to and talked down to by a superior but has an equal?

That's your whole game plan – – to be relaxed and calm enough with this person as a peer would be, as a friend would be. I'm not saying to crack jokes throughout. But he is to be relaxed and calm enough to speak with him as an equal. That is the pivotal goal of connecting with the interviewer

At the end of the day, you may not be hired because you just don't have the skills that they are looking for. That's fine.

However, when there are several people who are well qualified, often is the ability to connect with the interviewers. That is the tiebreaker. They look for someone that they can like and connect with his well. The connection allows them to feel comfortable enough with you so that if they have a choice between you and the shy candidate, they choose you.
