The hidden responsibility hiring managers are searching for in interviews

Uncategorized Oct 04, 2020

If you want to impress in an interview, know you are being evaluated on a hidden responsibility not listed on the job description.

With virtual interviewing and virtual work as the new standard, the needs for hiring managers are shifting.

Hiring managers now must consider a two-part evaluation (1) is this the right person for the job, and (2) will this person be effective remotely long-term?

Just like as in-person work environments, leaders want to build teams that are self-sufficient and resourceful and can continue to drive outcomes.  

As a job seeker, here are two ways to answer these questions.

First, ask insightful questions on how the team has transitioned virtually over the past months. Learn what’s worked and what is still a work in progress.

Second, discuss your own observations, a specific relevant experience (that tie to what you just learned above), and how you’d approach onboarding, coming up a learning curve and integration over time periods (30, 60 , 90 days).

Simply put, shift the planning of remote integration to you, not the company.  You’ll stand out as someone who is undeterred and resilient regardless of environment.
