Your usual interviewing strategy is to find out “what they want”. You assume that, armed with that knowledge, you can figure out whether you’re “it”, or not. Your smart move, however, is to lean forward in the saddle.
When they schedule you for an interview, employers are handing you a great opportunity to show yourself as the stronger candidate.
Employers are hungry to see initiative. Make that your interviewing strategy:
- In nearly every interview you’ll talk about parts of your work you love, and think of as accomplishments. Re-direct by asking: “Could I do more of that, here?”
- Is there a role you aren’t getting to play, though you know you’re ready? Ask for that added responsibility.
Leaning forward in the saddle lets you see a clearer picture of what life might be like at this new home. It’s one thing to hear platitudes about your potential with the practice. It’s another to get a positive response from upper management to the things you specifically reach for.
Don’t just wait, thinking you’ll find out what they want. Tell them what you want and ask how that fits with what they have in mind.
