Tips for a successful interview
Talking about your next job with Stephen Greenberg.
(As heard on WCBS radio opening bell report.)
Here’s what employers say are the best ways to turn a job interview into a job offer.
First do your homework; it’s the one comment I hear from every employer. A job interview is not the place to learn about the company; it’s the time for employers to learn about how you can add value to their business...
Successful candidates are not just enthusiastic about getting hired, they’re enthusiastic about how their skills are a great match for the employer’s specific job.
The two most important words a candidate can use in an interview are “for example.” General statements like “I am a hard worker” or “I am detail oriented” are too general and not persuasive; but good examples demonstrating those skills can help get you hired.

1. Do Your Research
Researching the company before the interview and learning as much as possible about its services, products, customers and competition will give you an edge in understanding and addressing the company's needs. The more you know about the company and what it stands for, the better chance you have of selling yourself in the interview. You also should find out about the company's culture to gain insight into your potential happiness on the job.
