What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the words “job interview”?
Most probably, you will picture a fancy office at a company’s headquarters, a conference room and a desk and a serious looking interviewer behind it. And you, in a suit, prepared for formal questions such as “What is your current situation?” or “What are your financial expectations?”.
And you would be right! Partially.
And what about these:
– a screening call with a headhunter?
– a lunch with a former colleague?
– a casual meeting with a known recruiter?
The answer should be three times “yes”. Take a look at this image and repeat after me: every business interaction you have is an interview. Just most of the time you are not aware of it.
Do you already interview like a master? Not sure? You might want to read some of our previous posts:
