When an interview goes well, it is always a good sign for you and the employer. However, don’t sleep on the second interview. When an employer calls you back for the second time, they are seriously looking at hiring you. During this interview, you want the employer to know that you are the right candidate for the job. Here are some tips to help you land the position.
• Questions will focus more on job responsibilities.
Be prepared to answer questions about how you will respond to certain situations on the job. For example, if you are applying for a customer service position, the employer may ask about your experience handling difficult customers.
• The employer will take you around to meet with different employees.
During the second interview, employers are more likely to show you around the office to talk with different employees including directors and support staff from other departments. Be professional and courteous at all times. Remember, they want to see if you are a good fit for the position and working with the company.
• You will have more time to ask questions.
At this point, you should have researched the company and prepared questions to ask the employer. Questions should focus on the working environment, job tasks and work schedule. If you are speaking directly to the hiring manager, you can ask about salary and benefits. However, you don’t want to focus on discussing salary during the second interview. When the employer offers you the position, this is a great time to negotiate your salary and benefits.
