Winning Interviews The Game has ChangedThinking of switching careers or moving to a different company, but it’s been a while?

If you’re just getting back into the interview “game” after spending 10, 20, or even 30 years in your previous position, it may seem a bit more challenging than you recall.          

Why?

Because let's face it, the entire interview process has changed.                         

What used to be a relatively straightforward and simple process has grown more complicated – it takes longer, there are more steps involved, and the competition has increased dramatically over the years.                                                                                                                

Not only that, but many interviewers and managers you’ll meet will be younger. They’re from a different generation that grew up in a rapidly changing world with its own set of problems. The type of formal training they’ve gotten on the job is also quite different - often less.  As a result, they often think and behave differently than interviewers did in the past – with a different mindset about what they’re looking for in a candidate.                                                                      

However, as important as all these changes to the interview process are, they aren’t the most significant.                                                 

The most significant changes over the years are the ones that happened to you. Since you’ve last been out there interviewing, you’ve developed more skills, you’ve gained experience, and you bring more wisdom and maturity to the table. You’re probably looking for greater pay and a higher level position than back then as well.                                   

What does all this change mean?                                                                                            

It means what worked for landing your job in the past probably won’t work anymore. Instead, you need to take an updated approach. You can’t simply have basic, generic answers. You need a strong presentation that matches this level of job.

It’s about time to take your skills to the next level to stay updated with the current trends. You can be more than competitive and go against younger applicants if you know how to play your cards to your advantage.
