How to Impress a Recruiter in an Interview

October 4, 2016

There's a reason that so much career advice centers around the job interview: it's your one opportunity to make an impression in a face-to-face setting with the person who is standing between you and the whatever life goal you're hoping to achieve by landing the job. Regardless of that person's position, if they're part of the interview chain, they have the potential to make or break the process for you—so knowing how to impress them is a crucial part of the process, no matter how qualified for the position you happen to be.

In this video, from Atrium Staffing, several recruiters break down what they're looking for in a candidate during those face to face meetings. Check it out—it's 3 minutes that could make a world of difference the next time you have an interview.

  • David recently assisted me with a lateral associate move. I truly felt that he was invested in placing me in the right position that fit my current professional and personal needs. He was courteous, extremely responsive, as well as personable, and provided me with great insight during the interview and offer negotiation processes. Even after I formally accepted the new position, David continued to follow up and ensure that it was a smooth transition for me to my new firm. I highly recommend David for anyone who is looking to find the right fit in their legal career search.
