One Response to Question of the Month: What Most Improves a Candidate’s Chances During the Job Interview?

    I’m usually very unenthusiastic about the many candidates who, when asked why they’ve applied for this position, will say ambiguously, “I just want a job.” Such a candidate is really not giving any commitment to a potential employer, rather is asking to be “given” something. As if, giving a job will be owned and a space will be occupied. So rarely will they say, “I wanna work.”

    I get more excited about the interviewee who shows true excitement and says, “I want THIS job!” I’m even more impressed by the one who says, “I want to work for THIS COMPANY!”

    But my favorite candidate, will personalize it and say, “I want to work for YOU!”Bill
