If you think you’re the only one with a big decision to make during a job interview, you’ve got it all wrong. Leading candidates have their choice of companies to work for, so it’s important to convince them that your organization is the best place for them.
Not only is the job interview your chance to see if the person is a good fit for the position, it’s also a great opportunity to explain why your company is the ideal place to work.
4 Tips to Sell Your Organization to
Candidates During a Job Interview
Incorporate these four techniques into your interview process to ensure candidates really want to work for your company:
- Clearly Explain the Interview Process: The interview process is often long and confusing for candidates. No one likes to be kept in the dark about something that has such a profound impact on their future. Combat this issue by clearly explaining the process from the start, so candidates know exactly what is going on and what the next step in the process is. Taking the time to do this shows people you value their time, which makes them feel respected.
- Discuss Company Culture: What makes your company stand out from the rest? Share the values and practices that make your organization a great place to work. Include features that are popular with current employees, such as the ability to work remotely, flextime, and a casual dress code.
- Highlight Organizational Successes: Top candidates want to work for a company where they’ll have the opportunity to grow. Impress these people by telling them about exciting projects your company is currently working on and recent accomplishments you’ve enjoyed. This will get them excited to be a part of a team that is always working hard to achieve innovation.
- Talk About the Future: Ask candidates about their future career plans. Explain that your company prides itself on internal promotions and as a result many workers have been with the organization for an impressive number of years. Employee retention rates say a lot about a company, so if yours are high, be sure to cite them.
