Below are some useful tips to take into consideration regarding third round interviews.
1. Tailor your answers to reflect your audience
The chances are that someone in a senior position will be interviewing you in a third round interview situation. You should sharpen up your answers to reflect this with succinct focussed answers as your interviewer will more than likely to get straight to the point. Avoid waffle at all costs as senior executives do not look favourably on this.
2. Pay particular attention to your greeting
Senior executives like a firm confident handshake accompanied by good eye contact accompanied by a strong introduction such as “Joe Bloggs(your name), pleased to meet you Mr. Smith(their name)”
The strength of your introductory greeting should leave a lasting impression with your interviewer. As the old Irish proverb states “tus maith leath na h-oibre”…a good start is half the work.
3. Focus on answering key questions
You should craft your interview answers to answer what is the focal point of the interviewers questions. Reading between the lines they are mainly thinking “is this the right person for the job”. Other questions which are normally running through their minds are “Can you do the job?”,”Will you do the job?” and “Will you fit in?”
If you prove comprehensively that you can do the job, will do the job and will fit into their organisation, you will have gone a long way toward landing your dream job.
