Think the interview is all about impressing them with your skills and experience? Think again.
More and more companies are hiring with “the likeability factor” in mind – the right credentials and the right personality.
In an Associated Press article in November 2007, one company admitted to putting candidates through a full-day of interviews. Their goal: To weed out “fake pleasantness”.
As a candidate, it’s a reminder that your goal of finding a job should also be balanced with finding the right fit for YOU. If your personality and the personality of the company don’t fit, you’ll be looking for a new job all too soon.
