Emotional intelligence expert Harvey Deutschendorf details how self-awareness can help even the most nervous interviewer.
Self-awareness is not only the basis of both professional and personal growth but a crucial ingredient in any job interview.
Traditionally, as job seekers, we spend much of our time and effort perfecting our resumes to showcase and highlight our skills, as well as thinking about how we will respond to questions such as “Tell me about yourself.” While the focus is on technical skills and past experience, the fact that we are being interviewed tells us that employers have already decided that we have the necessary skills for the position. What hiring managers want to learn during the interview process is how we will fit into their organization and whether we have the personal attributes to excel in the job.
“an interview in the most basic sense is a set of questions about you, the more you know yourself the better you’ll do.”
This is where self-awareness can help us stand out from the other applicants. Being self-aware can allow us to show self-confidence, authenticity, and adaptability. It helps us show our strengths in the optimal light and talk about our weaknesses in a manner that will not turn the interviewers off.
