How Can You Build Trust With The Interviewer?

How Can You Build Trust With The Interviewer?

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

The initial comment was, “One of the most important ways to build trust with your interviewer is to be honest and authentic. Don’t lie, exaggerate, or pretend to be someone you are not. Be confident and proud of your achievements, but also acknowledge your weaknesses and areas of improvement. Don’t be afraid to share your stories, opinions, and emotions, but also respect the boundaries and expectations of the interview. Be yourself, but also be professional and respectful.”

How Far Back Should My Resume Go?

I replied, “When firm’s hire, competence is only one thing they are screening for. The others are self-confidence, character, chemistry, charisma (charismatic people almost always do better than non-charismatic people), that you care, that they can connect with you, because they want to trust you. No trust, no hire. It’s all in the relationship the two of you develop in that brief amount of time.”
