I wanted to do a video today to talk with you about what you need to find out as they are scheduling you back for a final interview.
The 1st thing I want you to ask is, “Who is going to be on my calendar for that day? What is their role? What do you think they’re going to be looking for from me in order feel comfortable with the decision to hire me?”
So, even if this is being done by email, you set up the time for the interview and you can respond back with a message that says, “ I just want to make sure I block out enough time. How much time do you expect the interview is going to take? Who’s going to be on my calendar. What’s the role that they play within the organization and what sort of things do you think they might inquire about?” That’s groups of question # 1.
#2 is, “When do you think a decision will be made after this interview?” I think it’s worth noting that it may take 3 weeks or 3 days. Whatever it is, they will probably communicate with you, “Wii are bring back 3 people for final rounds,” or” we are just bringing you back.” That tells you something. If it is just you, it’s your job to lose. It’s your job to when. If there are 3 people, you know what the nature of the competition.
The big thing about this is you always want to know what it is that they’re going to be looking for from you. You can even go so far as to ask, “is there anything from my previous interview (or interviews) that gave them reason to hesitate that I can address in the course of my interview here?”
“No, everything is fine. That’s okay.”
You might want to do this in multiple emails so that, in this way, you’re not appearing nervous, anxious, too aggressive and the tone of what you write has to come across as casual.
“Hey, that’s okay. I’m confirmed for such and such date and time. Terrific! I will block out (whatever amount of time they asked you for).”
“I’m just curious. Is there anything from my previous interviews that’s given them reason to hesitate or makes them reluctant to choose me that I can address in the course of the?”
Again, that allows you know subjects that you want to be able to speak to in the course of your answering questions.
