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.
1. They study up
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.
