Use this four-step interview plan to enhance your chances of landing a job.

  1. Understand the employer’s needs and expectations. Hopefully, you will know that before the interview. If not, ask. Do not take anything for granted.
  2. Give the employer a clear pathway how you will solve the problem and meet their expectations. Use examples from similar situations, including evidence of your success. Convert this information into a story format because employers remember stories.
  3. Deliver a call to action. Reaffirm that you are interested in the organization and the specific job after each interview session.  Reassure them that you have the experience and that you will meet their performance expectations.
  4. Be nice. Smile. Be confident but not cocky. Employers tend to hire applicants that they like and trust.
