Interview is something that every professional must face or experience. I have been thinking about it for a long time, which angle should I talk about in email list order to talk about this topic thoroughly.
It suddenly dawned on me that interviewing is done by both the recruiter and the job seeker, and most people in the workplace have played both roles. So, it may be more interesting to look at the interview from the perspective of these two roles.
Some friends may say that I am a newcomer and can't interview others yet. You believe me, it won't be long before you have a chance, the Internet industry is developing very fast.
Many team leaders, or before they become leaders, have the opportunity to lead people. Therefore, becoming an interviewer is not a very high threshold.
Some classmates also said that I am very stable now, do not want to change jobs, and will not be a job seeker in a short time.
Let’s put it this way, as long as you are still in the workplace, there will always be a certain stage or scene in the future, and you will become the role of a job seeker. There are so many friends who have been laid off at the moment, they must not have been prepared for job hunting before, and the role change is a momentary thing.
Therefore, in order to talk through the "interview", we must jump out of the role and look at it from the perspectives of job seekers and recruiters.
Second, the essence of the interview is matching
Before sharing this question, let’s talk about the nature of the interview.
Why discuss the essence?
I have a way of looking at problems or a creed: when you study a problem, you must first understand the essence. When you understand the nature of this matter, many problems are easily solved.
So, what is the essence of an interview?
is a match.
The matching of job applicants and recruiters is often described as "one radish and one pit".
The interview has a clear purpose, take a pit to find the corresponding radish. If the correspondence is good, it is a match, and if the correspondence is not good, it is a mismatch.
This pit is big and small, deep and shallow, round and square. So, if you go to talk about a job, it doesn't work out. What does that mean? Does it mean that you are incompetent?
