We’ve interviewed a wide range of candidates through Atlanta City Access’ ongoing growth. This includes a fair number of introverts, who sometimes have a tough time promoting their skills. Here are a few ways that more reserved candidates can make lasting positive impressions during job interviews.
Focusing on achievements is a good strategy for any jobseeker. It’s especially useful for introverts. When they focus on their strengths, they go into the meetings with greater confidence. This strategy shows employers how much a person can contribute in concrete terms.
It’s also a good idea for introverted candidates to have some solutions in mind for challenges the company might face. This requires a lot of research beforehand, but it’s also one of the most effective ways to impress a potential employer. When any jobseeker offers a real solution that will help advance our Atlanta City Access mission, we’re intrigued by that person’s potential.
One way introverts are uniquely suited to doing well in interviews is through their talent for focused listening. They understand the value of hearing what other people are saying and what their words really mean. When they combine this strength with insightful questions, introverts stand out from other candidates.
These techniques help even the most introverted jobseekers leave lasting imprints on interviewers. For more of our insights into the job interview process, check out the Atlanta City Access Facebook.
