Recruiters,

What do you like to hear when interviewing a candidate for a position? Apart from experience, what sets a person apart from the pool of applicants?

I have an interview with a recruiter on Monday for my dream position, and I wanna make sure I do well! Any tips and pointers are deeply appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Have a good passion story when they ask you “tell me about yourself”. I think the most compelling thing for anyone who is interviewing you is whether or not you seem passionate/excited about the position and whether or not you show you have emotional intelligence and can be teachable. Good luck!!

I’ve just had it with my manager today! I’m an entry level financial analyst and this is my first full time job outside of school. I’m very open to learning and I ask lots of questions but every single time instead of my manager helping, he usually shits on me or responds with condescending comments like “that’s common sense.” He often yells and raises his voice in meetings in-front of other coworkers and emails on weekends asking to update models.

Thread: I’ve been talking to this company for months and the recruiter has been in and out with communication. A few weeks ago, he reached out, apologized for the delay and explained they needed to figure out role priorities but that they’re moving forward, I’m a top candidate, & they wanted to wrap up interviews and extend an offer the following week. He never reached out to set up interviews and hasn’t replied to any of my calls or emails.

Hi all , I am currently working at Deloitte as a QA lead . I manage a team of 10 . I want to break into roles at meta , google as a program manager / project manager ?

I’ve had four interviews in the past week, and I’ve noticed that HMs and recruiters aren’t as serious as they should be: 1. They got up in the middle of the interview to answer the door. 2. Biting their nails throughout the entire interview while working on something else. 3. Mentioned that I need to be available 24/7 and can only offer a title less than I currently am because they don’t have a high budget. Is there anything that I can do stop this? Maybe consider another industry?
