Communicating with the employer by phone

And it does not matter who will conduct the conversation, the secretary, or the employer himself, in any case, if you manage to put yourself right, it will certainly be noticed. If the conversation was conducted by the secretary, in this case, he will tell you about the leader. While talking on the phone about the work you are invited to, you need to know several rules, how to behave and what questions to ask. It is necessary to clarify to which position you want to be invited, and ask all the questions that interest you about this post. Do not hesitate to ask. The interest shown to the proposed work will certainly interest the caller. This will show that you do not care where to work. If, from the very beginning of the conversation, you understood that the position you are invited to is not suitable for you, report it in a polite manner, giving weighty arguments. During such a conversation many applicants become nervous, and in the end they forget to ask the calling organization. You need to have a sheet and a pen with you, where you can write down the name of the organization, the name and the name of the person with whom you are talking, and also the phone number, where you can call if necessary. Ask a person who will conduct an interview with you. The correct tone will be addressed by name and patronymic, so know them in advance. Ask what the exact address and location of the organization is, where they invite you. Make sure that the time appointed for the interview is convenient for you, other things will not interfere. Please note that the interview can take a lot of time, so plan the day in advance. Let's say that on this day you are invited to other interviews, respectively, choose time, focusing on the previous ones, with an interval of two or three hours. you should understand that the conversation is not immediate, because the employer will be interested in your professional skills and work experience.
After the interview time is established,you can proceed to its preparation. What is necessary for this? Take care of collecting the necessary documents that may be of interest to the employer. It is necessary to have a passport, a resume (preferably in two copies), a diploma with a liner (if available), various certificates, certificates, etc., in general, anything related to the job offered to you. It is recommended to study in advance the information about the organization you are going to interview for. You can find such information in any media sources, for example, on the company's website, in newspapers, magazines, etc. Do not ignore the history of the organization, find out how it developed, its activities, achievements and the names of the units. Possessing such information, in an interview with a recruiter you can show yourself as an interested person, demonstrate your serious intentions. Knowing the detailed information about the organization is useful and right for the applicant. And even if your candidacy is rejected at the end of the interview, you, nevertheless, expand your knowledge horizon. Be sure to schedule the schedule for the day ahead. No employer accepts delays, especially for an interview. you must clearly know on what transport you will get to the place, how long it will take and when you need to go out to arrive on time. You can even drive to the place where the interview will be held in advance, so as to be sure that you will not be late, and do not stay in search of a building. In advance you need to be prepared for some questions of the employer, which in any case will sound during your conversation with him. Absolutely all employers will be interested in the question of your previous place of work, why you left from there, whether you are working now or where. The answer to the question is better to think in advance. It is important to know that the answer like: "I did not like the staff" may scare the employer, who will conclude that you do not know how to get along with people. Often, recruiters are interested in why their company caused interest and why you want to work there. Answering it, it is worthwhile to bring as many merits (with which you have read, studying information about the organization), express your desire to promote the company's activities and promote its prosperity. It is advisable to determine in advance for yourself what benefit your specific activity can bring as an employee for this organization. The answer to this question must be known clearly, to make an indelible impression on the employer, to show one's indifference to the activities of the organization, thereby to interest him. Honestly answer the questions you need to be able toanswer the question about their own merits and demerits as an employee. It will be correct to list more shortcomings to prove yourself as a self-critical person. This will raise you in the eyes of the interlocutor. But it is worth remembering that your mistakes should not be very serious, otherwise you will scare away the applicant. The main task here is to show that you can correct your mistakes, and you did it. Be ready to report on your failures in professional activities, as well as achievements as a specialist. Answer questions as honestly as possible, because any lie will come up sooner or later. Often, the employer immediately sees a lie because of his experience in conducting interviews and the example of the many people with whom he had to talk. Never be negative about your past colleagues and leader. Suffice it to say that there is no opportunity for professional and career growth in past work, irregular wages, uncomfortable work schedule, inconvenient location. A clear knowledge of what the organization is doing will help you impress the interlocutor, make it clear why they are interested in your company, and what you can do for it. Such knowledge will only increase your chances of being accepted for this job. You also have the right to ask the employer all the questions that interest you. Prepare them in advance, formulate them in the right form. Thus, you will prove yourself from the best side, show your interest. Great attention must be paid to its appearance. The old Russian proverb says: "They meet on clothes, but see off on the mind". And indeed it is. Already the first impression of you should be to the maximum favorable. Picking up clothes for the interview, consider the post you were invited to. Not for every post is a strict business suit. Your clothes should look neat, nails and hair groomed, shoes polished. These small rules of appearance will necessarily make a pleasant impression on your interlocutor.
At the interview
What do you need to remember while going through the interview? How to behave correctly? If possible, try to come for an interview a little before the appointed time. It will be much better if you have to wait 15 minutes, rather than the interlocutor will wait for you at least half a minute. Delayed for an interview, even if the reason for this was significant, in the eyes of the employer will delete your candidacy for the proposed position by 99%. This does not mean that under force-majeure circumstances you have no right to be late. Be sure to call the phone number that you learned in advance, apologize and inquire if there is an opportunity to postpone the meeting for a later time or at all the next day. Sometimes there are situations when the employee changes his mind about settling into the organization to which he was invited. In this case, it is necessary to call the employer, tell him the reason why you changed your mind about coming to the interview, apologize that you violated his plans, and also thank for communication. Let your last conversation leave a good impression on you. If you still decide to go for an interview, when you enter the office of the organization, be sure to greet and report that you came for an interview. If you did not come directly to the office of the company, but to the business center, you should clearly and correctly know the name of the organization you came to in order for the gatekeeper to call and inform you about your arrival. Disconnect your mobile phone, remove everything that might disturb you. Have enough patience, show your benevolence from the very beginning. When you enter the office, be sure to greet, smile, and address by name and patronymic to the one who will conduct a conversation with you. If this person does not have a card with a name and patronymic, ask how you can address it. Wanting to pre-arrange the interlocutor, tell me how pleased you are with the invitation to their company, how would you like to work here. The recruiter is always pleased to hear when his company responds well. After the invitation, sit on the proposed place in such a way that your face is clearly visible to the interlocutor. Do not cross your legs, do not fall apart in the chair, do not rivet your hands. Be calm and professional. Be attentive As carefully as possible, listen to the questions that you are asked. If the question is incomprehensible to you, you can ask the interlocutor, but you should be careful, because asking each question will be an indicator of bad taste. Answer the questions just by listening to them. The answers should be brief, relevant, do not pour a lot of water, 2-3 minutes to answer - that's enough. Try to avoid the answers "yes" and "no", otherwise the employer will decide that you do not know how to justify your answer, explain your point of view. Even with the available resume, the interlocutor can ask you to tell about yourself. Do not go into details, tell your whole biography. you should understand perfectly well that your life is unlikely to interest the employer, your professional skills, work experience, achievements in labor activity are important to him. If you have any questions during the conversation - do not hesitate to ask them. If you are very interested in the issue of professional growth, be sure to ask it correctly. you must understand that not all positions mean career growth. Before asking this question, you yourself must give a detailed answer about your skills, and only then will the interlocutor draw conclusions about you. Show interest in existing training programs and advanced training courses. Thus, you will prove yourself as a purposeful person, which will raise your candidacy even more in the eyes of the interlocutor. Sincere smile, a suitable good and unobtrusive humor, and then no one will remember your small misses. Your smile is an indicator of your peace of mind and your self-confidence. After the interview is over, be sure to thank the recruiter for the conversation, despite the final decision that he will take. Good luck and success in the device to work!
