Imagine this: you show up for an in-person interview. Prior, you made sure your technology worked, joined the virtual meetings early, and made sure the space around you was clean, organized and quiet. You were dressed professionally and ready with notes and questions. You made eye contact, addressed each question as best as you could, and tried to include unique examples from your past experiences any chance you could get.
Sounds about right? If only.
This is likely what’s running through your mind: My interview starts in 10 minutes and I am starting to feel anxious. I think I am prepared, but I really wish I knew what they were going to ask me.
If the second scenario is ringing a bell, this is the conversation for you. I, Steve, will be bringing my insights and tips as a hiring manager and I, Kelly, will be bringing my insights as a recent hire to Waters during a global pandemic.
We want you to walk away from this Chat & Learn with:
The best tips to prepare for (and ace) your next virtual interview
Strategies for making your application stand out amongst the rest
Insights from the people who are/have been involved in the process
