Today, sweet podcast on THE job interview tactic that gets you hired. It’s the tactic that cuts right to the employer’s needs.

Their needs + your solutions = job offer.

That’s 9 semesters of higher math talkin’ right there and I have the Bachelor’s degree in EE to prove it.

I once had a client who would say to me, “But, Andy, I’m really bad at predicting the future.”

She was referring to her ability to hire the right engineers for her company.

She’d say they sounded great in the interviews.

Then, she’d notice, after they were hired, they didn’t really have the traits she thought they did.

This works both ways.

Job candidates don’t often know what questions to ask potential employers to determine whether they company is a great fit for them.

I guess, technically speaking, asking the questions is the easy part. After all, you can just ask the ones I give you.

The challenge lies in your ability to dissect the employers’ responses.

That’s why, in today’s lesson, I’m going to give the ultimate question to ask an employer to know (yes, know) whether it’s a great fit for you.

Here’s the question…

“What do you love about working here?”

That’s the easy part and you don’t even need to listen to the podcast to know what it is.

The gold isn’t in asking the question.

It’s in knowing what their responses mean—to YOU…

Are job interviews falling out of your pockets?

As in, you’re walking down the street and one falls out of your pocket and you don’t even bother to bend over to pick it up?

If so, have a nice Tuesday and I’ll see you next week!

If not, let’s check a few things.

Consistency?

Elbow grease?

Right targets?

Right people?

Shoving resume into Applicant Trashing System to deafening silence to thinking you stink at life? (This last part is so not true BTW.)

Right roles?

So on and so forth and let’s get you to refocus.

Need some interrogation methods on evaluating your potential boss?

Like, trying to figure out whether you'll be dealing with a micro-manager?

Or, if they're interested in turning you into a work-aholic?

Maybe, gasp, they're a yes-man or yes-woman to their boss, which translates into a nightmare for you.

So on. So forth. Etc. Etc.

I’ve got an Andy-dandy for you today.
