Interviewing with Vancouver Employers

Interviews might be just as nerve racking for you as they can be for the person who is conducting your interview. In some conditions, neither you nor the hiring manager know one another, you could have spoken on the telephone, but generally you were screened by someone other than the hiring manager. You are now meeting for the first time. Remember, you have prepared for this day by working on your resume, asking yourself essential questions, and researching the company.

Be honest in your interview, yet not too abrupt as you do not want to appear emotionally unstable. Talk as if you are talking to a friend in Vancouver, and do not give text book answers. The hiring manager already is familiar with most of your technical skills and background and will validate these things with you, but they also want to know you, your temperament, and will evaluate you to see if you will get along with the rest of their staff. Essentially, your soft skills are equally as important as your technical skills. They can train you on some technicalities but they cannot train your character.

If ultimately you are not selected for the job in Vancouver, they can at least remember you for your honesty, sincerity, and desire to work. You may not be the perfect fit for their group or the job, but they may know just the company to refer you to.
