Three Things Hiring Managers Want You to Tell Them..

Hiring managers don’t always ask straightforward questions, which can make it hard to know whether you’re convincing them you’re right for the job. Here’s what the interviewer really wants you to answer — however they may ask about it:

What are you like to work with?

Help them see you as a member of the team by establishing a rapport. Smile, lean forward to show you’re engaged, speak with enthusiasm, and make eye contact.

Can you learn?


Talk about how you’ve handled challenges in the past, including new skills you picked up along the way. You can also inquire about the learning resources the company offers, which will make clear that you want to grow.


Can you take initiative?


Demonstrate this by being prepared. Know what the company does, its history, its strengths, and its weaknesses. And be ready to ask good questions about the company and the role.
