PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 03, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As the owner of Heneisen Career Services, Andrew Heneisen
is devoted to helping people gain confidence in the arena of job interviews, which is why he promotes the tips listed in a current article of SF Examiner. The report highlights words of wisdom by hiring manager Dana Manciagli, a professional who has excelled in multinational companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Kodak and Avery Dennison. As a seasoned hiring manager, she frequently coaches thousands of people globally.
Andrew Heneisen is also a valuable insider, a professional who knows exactly what it takes to get hired because of his extensive career coaching knowledge. "Interviews are critical opportunities for candidates to express who they are and what they want," he said. "It's their time to let their skills shine - but it's also their time to explore whether or not they would fit into the work culture. Because of the pressure to impress, I coach a lot of clients on how to perfect the interviewing process."
Heneisen explains that one of the most important parts of interviewing is to know why one wants the job and to show their enthusiasm transparently. "Employers want people who are passionate about the company and its mission," he said. "I constantly remind my clients that they have to communicate clearly why they want the job, and not to let nervousness cloud their excitement. Hiring managers want to get an accurate sense of who you are and how you can contribute to the team. Don't put on an act; but rather, communicate your strengths and show a positive attitude."
The article continues to point out that mistakes such as "babbling on and on" are easily avoidable, noting that candidates need to "slow down and breathe. When asked a question, pause, take a deep breath and respond thoughtfully." Heneisen weighs in on this particular issue. "Some people display their anxiety by talking too much and too fast. The hiring manager is going to think you're unprepared if you don't take the time to think about your answers, so don't fear a little awkward silence," he said.
Dress is also a delicate part of interviewing according to both Heneisen and Manciagli. Heneisen urges candidates to dress conservatively, even if the office is casual. "It's best to come dressed up," he said.
"But it's also important to note that you can dress formally but still be comfortable. Don't try to impress your hiring manager by wearing something you're completely uncomfortable in." Manciagli adds that dressing too informally or inappropriately is a mistake. "The hiring manager thinks this interview is not that important to you," she said.
She also warns candidates of "bad-mouthing" a former employer. "The hiring manager thinks you will do the same to them," she said. "never be negative, no matter how bad it was." Andrew Heneisen also recommends a positive attitude, pushing candidates to put themselves out there and communicate clearly.
