7 Job Interview Habits of Super Persuasive People

Filed under: Confidence, Job Search, Recruiting & Hiring, Your Career

A job interview is an opportunity to sell yourself. It is your opportunity to prove to the interviewer that you possess the skills necessary to take the company forward and that you are someone who can be trusted.

The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.–Zig Ziglar

If the interview was successful, then you have clearly communicated what you have to offer, and have gained another friend–and hopefully a new job.

Persuasive people know how to prepare for and excel at interviews. Here are 7 things super persuasive candidates do to gain the trust and enthusiasm of the interviewer.

Prior to the interview, learn everything you can about the job you are applying for and the company. You can be far more persuasive when you understand and discuss how your skills align with those of the position you are interviewing for and the company’s mission and future vision.

Is An On-Demand Workforce The Future Source Of Talent?

Filed under: Insights, Job Search, Recruiters, Recruiting & Hiring

Contingent workers. Contractors. Agency Temps. No matter what you call them, your industry, or your location, most of you use them a part of your workforce strategy. And that is not likely to change in the future.

Temporary labor isn’t new – it’s always been an alternative, often used during turbulent economic times.

So it’s not surprising that there was an increase in the use of a contingent workforce during the turbulent Great Recession. What may be surprising is that we’re not seeing the historical return to permanent employees with an improved economy. Other factors for the upward trend include globalization, knowledge-driven work, and shift from “traditional” work as baby-boomers retire and Millennials increase their percentage of the workforce.

The job interview hasn’t changed much over the years. There are the resumes, the face-to-face meetings, the callbacks — and the agonizing wait, as employers decide based on a hunch about who’s best suited for the job.

Some companies are selling the idea that new behavioral science techniques can give employers more insight into hiring.

For most of her life, Frida Polli assumed she’d be an academic. She got her Ph.D, toiled in a research lab and started a post-doctorate program before she realized she’d been wrong.

Polli didn’t want to study neuropsychology — she wanted to use it in business.

“People have always wanted to find a way to assess someone’s cognitive and emotional traits in an objective way that might give them a sense of: What is this person really ideally suited for?” she says.
