I am sure that all of us have been through that phase where we have been to interviews, tons of them actually, and ended up not being accepted and then we have wondered, what it is that interviewers really want to know! So I have this list for you where you shall find out exactly what they want to know!
Opinion of your previous co-workers
The first and the foremost thing is that they want to know what you previous managers and co-workers have to say about your performance, your work ethics, and your over all attitude!
How well do you get along with others
Another important thing that interviewers swoon over is the ability of an employee to get along with others. They are looking for people who would be great to work with.
Do you pay attention to little details
Little things like being on time, to sending emails on time and stuff like that also matters a lot. They certainly do not want a robot but someone who is capable of performing the big as well as small tasks with equal efficiency!
This is one of the more important factors and something undoubtedly every interviewer is looking for!
Your Work Ethic
They are certainly keen to know whether you are a saint at work or does pressure unleash your inner dragon!
Are you resourceful
The interviewers are looking for people with “I can do it” attitude rather than the “This is impossible” attitude during tough times especially!
Do you know how to get things done
The interviewers also really want to know whether you can only come with up with solutions or do you also know how to implement them! How to actually get the results!
Are you self aware
People really like candidates who know their strengths but people who know both their strengths and weaknesses are admired even more. Being self aware is important!
How well did you perform at your previous job
So they know that you were assigned various tasks at your previous job. What they need to know is how well you performed at those tasks!
Do you really need the job
Employers certainly want to know whether or not you want the job. They do not want someone who would slouch to work and then leave in three months! Commitment is key!
