Tips on How to Ace Group Interviews【社恐害怕群面？收下这份群面指南】
Group interviews are often done for frontline jobs like those in retail, customer service, and food service because these roles rely on a candidate's ability to solve problems, keep calm and think fast all while wearing a smile.
It doesn't mean that group interviews are limited to the above-mentioned roles, as more employers are starting to prefer this setup because it's cost-effective.
So use the strategies below to prepare for your next group interview so you're not caught off guard with this new job search experience.
Greet Both Interviewers and Candidates Individually
Arrive at the venue early, then introduce yourself to the interviewer and everyone else participating. Yes, this includes other applicants. This not only breaks the ice, it's also a good way to get everyone's name so you can use it when you address them during the interview. You might think addressing another applicant by name isn't important, but to the interviewer this shows that you've got good people skills.
Be Friendly, But Be True to Your Convictions
The tendency to go along with the crowd is strong in any group setup. With friends and family, people often keep the status quo to avoid arguments and the same applies in the workplace. Only at work, employers look for people who don't shy from arguments because that's a necessary trait for leadership.
Listen More Than You Talk
In a typical interview, all the group interview questions are specifically for you, but in group interviews you've got to wait for your turn. Use this idle time to listen to what other candidates are saying so you can come up with a better response when it's your turn to talk.
Don't interrupt other candidates and the interviewer, even if you've got something good to say because that'll just make you look aggressive.
Answer First Every Now and Then
To stand out, you either have to give the best answer or be the first one to share your thoughts. Since it's impossible to guarantee you'll always have the best answer in a group setup, it'll be easier to stand out if you're the first to answer the question. Of course, you should only do this once in a while so it doesn't look like you're blocking out other applicants.
