5 Things to Consider for Interview Debriefs
When an agency recruiter sends you to an interview, it is important to prepare for the post-interview-agency-debrief. This meeting is an essential part of agency-assisted job searches and it’s important to be prepared to make the most of it.
Here are some tips on how to prepare for an interview debrief and what specific notes to make immediately after the interview…
Take notes during the interview
During the interview, take notes on the key points discussed, the questions asked, and your answers. This information will be helpful when you’re debriefing with the recruiter, and it will help you remember important details about the interview.
Evaluate your performance
After the interview, take some time to evaluate your performance. Did you hit all the key points? Were you happy with your communication style? Did you build rapport with the interviewer? Be honest with yourself and identify areas where you could improve.
Note what peaked your interest in the company
During the interview, you likely learned more about the company and the position. Note down what specifically interested you in the company and the role. This information will help you determine if the job is a good fit for you.
Identify any hesitations
Similarly, note down anything that made you hesitant about the company or the position. This could be anything from the company culture to the job responsibilities. Identifying these hesitations will help you determine if the job is a good fit for you.
Compare the role to others you’ve interviewed for
Write down how this role compares in terms of the job responsibilities, company culture, and overall fit. This information will help you determine if this job is the right one for you.
When it comes to the debrief with the recruiter, be honest about your experience and your thoughts on the job. The recruiter is there to help you find the right job, and they need your feedback to do that effectively. Be open and willing to listen to their feedback as well, and work together to determine if this job is the right fit for you.
In summary, taking the time to prepare for an interview debrief and making specific notes after the interview will help you evaluate your performance and determine if the job is a good fit for you. Be honest and open during the debrief with the recruiter, and work together to find the right job for you. Good luck!
