The summer is upon us, and if you are looking for a job, you may be tempted to take two months off, but when you think about it, that’s exactly what most job seekers will be doing, so instead, ramp up your job search. There is less competition during the interviewing phase. Nicole Francis, Client Account Manager at ManpowerGroup, has some tips for nailing the job interview. Francis is the ideal person to offer interviewing tips because she has interviewed thousands of job candidates and talked to hundreds of hiring managers.
 
Preparing for the Job Interview
 
Before the job interview, take time to prepare to enable you to ace the interview, and allow you to work on creating a great first impression. Preparation comes in different forms.
 
 
On the Day of the Interview 
 
If you are asked, “What are you looking for in compensation” during the interview, Nicole Francis recommends that you answer this way, “Money is important to me, but it’s not the most important thing. I’m really here to learn about the company, people and the position or the opportunity. In my current role, or my past position, I was making $50,000. I would like to stay in that range or higher, but I would consider any serious offers made.” This answer covers all the important points. Tweak the response so it applies to your situation.
 
After The Interview  
 
Nailing the job interview takes time and preparation. But the effort is worth it because it signals to the hiring manager that you are really interested and excited about the position.
