It is very thrilling when an employer shows their interest in you. But in all these thrills and excitement, an interviewee may miss these important signs. They are just wasting their time and effort.
How do you know that your potential employees are just interviewing you’re for their benefit? Here are some signs that you should be aware of:
YOUR INTERVIEWER IS KEEN AT EVERY DETAIL
In a regular interview set up, an interviewee focuses on many aspects about you. It may be your personal and work background, or your educational attainment. But there are some who asks a detailed question which can be far from the job that you are applying for.
The interviewer is more interested in your specific answers than they are interested in hiring you. And when you make general statements, they probe and ask you to give detailed information. When you question them back, they just ignore it or shift to another topic.
THEY ARE VERY INTERESTED IN HOW YOU GET THE JOB DONE
Usually, your interviewer will ask you about a problem which you have encountered and how you managed it. That’s all about it, no more, no less. But when it comes to those “interviewing with benefits”, they can ask you a lot of detailed questions about a company problem and are very eager to pick your brains.
The irony is they don’t share much information about the company that you will be working for.
THEY DON’T GIVE CLEAR HIRING INSTRUCTIONS
Another usual thing in a job interview is that they will give you specific instructions when they are willing to hire you. But when you ask these “scammers” you won’t get a clear answer about the result of the interview.
They don’t have a clear statement on which department of the company you will be placed.
THEY INTERVIEW YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN
The usual hiring process may take one or two employee interview and then they will tell you immediately when you are hired or not. But if they are just interviewing you to get a data, they will just ask you, again and again, fill out the forms, without specifics on when they are going to hire you.
As a job-seeker, you should be aware of these signs. You want to land a job and not to be a victim of these scams. You deserve to know your rights as an applicant.
