Wednesdays are for #RNRAjiraTips and today we have prepared for you “5 signs that your job interview went well”.
1. Your job interview ran long.
Recruiters and hiring managers do not like to waste time. If they feel that you are not the right fit for the position, they may cut the interview short.
Keep in mind that sometimes there is more than one possible explanation for a situation. If your interview ended sooner than you expected, perhaps an urgent issue demanded the hiring manager’s attention immediately. But many times, an interview running longer than expected could be a sign that it went well.
2. The recruiter or hiring manager seemed to enjoy the conversation.
Pay attention to the hiring manager’s body language and overall demeanor. If they look relaxed, immersed in the flow of the conversation, and focused on you, you have some good signs that the interview is going well.
3. You got the office tour or met other professionals who work there.
If the recruiter or the hiring manager wanted to know the details of those, or your available start date, you have some good signs that they are seriously considering your candidacy.If the interviewer or employer took the time to walk you around the office and make a few introductions with team members, chances are they can see you as part of the team. Use this opportunity to make a good impression and get a feel for the company culture and your would-be co-workers.
4. The interviewer tried to sell you on the company and the position.
When the manager goes into detail about the company’s benefits, pay, perks, and its great culture, they are trying to sell you on the position. This is a great reminder that while the hiring manager is interviewing you, you are interviewing them as well.
5. You get into details
If your interviewer moves beyond the generic, and starts discussing nuanced details of upcoming projects and or how the job description aligns with your long-term career goals – that is a good sign they’re fast-tracking their interest from consideration to the practicalities of long-term success.
