When An Interviewer Asks – “What Are Some Of Your Significant Accomplishments?” Č This question gives you an opportunity to express how your contributions to previous companies have put dollars and cents into their bottom line. Do not mistake this question as an open invitation to talk endlessly about things you have done at previous jobs which have no relation to helping an organization make more money.
If you have never been a higher paid employee, or have not considered how increasing your salary and/or added value to your contributions will benefit the company, it is best to bite your tongue. I know of a candidate who was about to go on a second interview, refused to answer the question, and left a positive impression with the interviewer. Following up with the interviewer is a waste of time, as this particular candidate has little value to the company. Once again, this candidate left an impression with the interviewer.
If you have been negotiating a new hire and led a negotiation to make a little more money, or provide a little more flexibility, this is a great time to follow up with that offer. Most candidates think that once they make the offer, the negotiation is over. In reality, negotiating can only occur after an offer has been made. Let’s say you have made the offer and it is low, this is no time to relax. First off, understand the reasons why you made the offer. Make sure to understand the “4 Numbers” or truths before you talk to your recruiter.
When an offer is made, if the recruiter is heading a search in that area, the candidate is making a mistake. Let them know as soon as possible so that you can start building Negotiating Relationships.
All employers like candidates who are negotiating, as it shows a strength in the candidate’s negotiating skills. This is an area where both candidate and employer can fail. If the candidate was acquired for less than market-wage, it may be in the employer’s best interest to let the candidate know now. If the candidate was acquired for more than market- wage, the employer may be reluctant to let the candidate go unless there is something in the offer that the candidate is missing.
Let the candidate know that you have options. If there is something in the offer that the candidate is missing, let them know as soon as possible so that you can build Negotiating Relationships.
All employers like candidates who are negotiating a salary/commission split. Let the candidate know that the employer is expecting a salary/commission split. What the candidate should do is let their recruiter know this information as it may give them a leg up. Above all, do not tell the recruiter or employer anything like this until negotiations are completed.
7. What details should I know about the location?
Don’t know the specifics? No problem. There are many web sites that list gravity well known airports serving the area. Some of these sites also list hotels that are located in the area. These hotels are also great for meeting new people. In addition to that, these areas are usually quiet in the evenings when most people are going to relax.
8. What if the candidate will be working?
Again, do not tell the interviewer that you are going to be working. If it is a company town then make sure that you know how to get to work (especially the commute) and what that means for travel time. If its a big town, you may not have a choice of public transportation, and may have to driveMany employers like candidates who drive, as it shows initiative on your part. If you are expecting to work a lot of hours, or drive all the time, be prepared to gather the information and fill out the application yourself, or wait for someone to tell you.
