Over the course of my career I had to switch jobs and companies a few times. Fortunately, I never got laid off, but sometimes I felt that type of event was close and that was not a good feeling. A key event earlier in my career got me thinking about my approach to job interviewing. Until then interviewing was a necessity that I did not enjoy and I have to admit I was never prepared as much as I should have.
Based on that key event back then I took a more organized approach about job interviews and preparation. I started to keep track of questions, responses, and other type feedback. I paid close attention to body language and psychological behavior of the people I was interviewing with. I kept my eyes on email communications, wording, frequency, and anything you can imagine related to that.
From the data I collected, I formed my current approach. For one I am prepared when invited for interviews. I do not want to waste my nor do I want to waste the hiring companies time. It is both our interest to get the most out of an interview. The better I am prepared, the easier it is for the hiring manager to form a picture of who I am and if I am considered to be a fit for their team. At the same I want to make sure the company is a good fit for me.
The results of my effort have been rewarding. A higher success rate at interviews meant a higher success rate in receiving a job offer. In addition, the more a hiring company wanted me, the easier it was to negotiate a bit more money or some extra vacation. That would have been less possible with a mediocre job interview.
