What according to your experience during interviews has been one thing that you said or did made you get the job over 1000s of other applicants for a job, according to you? What is that one thing that made a difference and set you apart?

Just asking to learn from experiences.

Being a human - when I’m interviewing I ask what gets them excited at their job or what they enjoy doing outside of work, talk about valuing people the most because it can make or break the job for me. They often ask me about my volunteer work and because it has to do with pets they tell me about theirs etc. I think I stand out because I’m personable and am genuinely interested in learning more about them as people and acknowledge that there’s more to life than work. You can just see them light up when they talk about something they’re passionate about that I asked about.

Enthusiasm and passion.

I second this. There is no magic question to ask in an interview that will get you it- but showing a genuine interest in the position and the experiences of the person interviewing you will take you far. I’ve found that being chatty, friendly, and laid back will get you further than pitch-perfect, rehearsed answers (depending on the structure of the interview). People will remember how you made them feel over everything else.

Hi All,

Has anyone ever had to do the second step of an interview over slack? It was a legitimate company not a scam. The person I would be working with said the second interview after an assignment was over slack. They asked me in the first interview about my writing skills. They said since it's a remote company most people I'd never speak with directly and everything would be asynchronous through slack. Is this typical?

Anyone have tips for proper slack etiquette or resources to share?
