Randy Bernard, Author of “The Pocket Guide for Sales Survival” and Director of Sales at Curata, a content marketing software company in Cambridge, MA, recently appeared on Inside the Interview to share his unique perspective and interview advice for job seekers. Among other interview questions and topics, I asked him if he had any advice for job candidates who have been let go by their previous employer for poor performance. Even if you’ve never been fired for poor performance, listen carefully to what he told me, as I think it is applicable for many other interview questions.
- Learn how you should grab his attention if you’d like to be considered for a position
- Listen to how he defines the right level of enthusiasm you should bring to an interview
- He’s interviewed over 25,000 people in his career and has only hired about 1%. Find out what he says that some of the most successful candidates do differently than everybody else
- Which 3 core competencies must he see in a candidate before moving them to the next round of interviews,or perhaps making an offer?
- Find out what makes him absolutely cringe! It was my favorite part of the interview.
- Is he hiring and how should you get in touch with him?
The answers to these questions, and many more, can be heard in the video below. I’m confident that you’ll find the insight that Randy shared to be useful and actionable the next time you’re preparing for an interview. We look forward to your comments.
