Before and during an interview, it is important to know how to analyze the needs of a company. This will allow you to succeed in your interview and also to see if the position corresponds to your expectations.
How to analyze a recruiter’s needs?
- Study the job description closely: don’t apply for a job that doesn’t suit you! It seems logical, but many people still apply to job descriptions that are not adapted to their desires. Take more time if you need to, so you can find a job that fits your career prospects. You will become more competent and productive, and your potential future employer will not waste time and money.
- Emphasize the right points: once you have clearly identified the recruiter’s needs, you can emphasize your strengths in relation to the position sought. Does the job require a good level of foreign languages? Emphasize your international experience and what it has brought you, both personally and professionally. This demonstrates your interest and your ability to take on the missions that will be entrusted to you.
- Be transparent (but not too transparent!): be honest about what you like and don’t like. That’s what the interview is for! Whether it is for the employer or for yourself, it is much easier to work with a person who likes what he/she is doing. Of course, you will have to wait until you take over the position before you do the mission update in order to have a minimum of hindsight.
- Talk about your future projects: don’t hesitate to talk about your other professional activities if you have any or your wishes for the future. This highlights your entrepreneurial side, your determination and your ambition. This way, the employer can better understand your desires and what you might or might not like.
As you can see, to analyze a recruiter’s needs, you must first analyze your own. Ask yourself the following questions: What do you like most about your job? What do you like least? What position do you want to move into? This will allow you to aim for a job that suits you and that will allow the company recruiting you to gain a good employee.
