Tips on How to Shine in the Second Round of Interviewing

Interviewing is one of the most important parts of your job search. A successful interview can mean you remain under consideration and hopefully eventually get hired. In many cases, however, you won’t need to just impress potential employers in one single interview before moving on to employment. Instead, you may have to do two or more interviews to meet everyone who has a say in the hiring process.

If you get called in for a second interview, you want to be as impressive as possible, especially now that you’ve cleared the first hurdle and are considered a serious contender. You can wow your potential employer and make a major positive impact if you follow a few simple tips for excelling in the second interview. These tips include:

  • Making an advanced plan. Your second interview is really a chance to sell yourself and convince the employer that they were right to continue considering your candidacy. Give it your all and be prepared to sell yourself and show off your skills.
  • Preparing to show off your attributes. During a second interview, you are being more seriously considered for how you will fit in with the company and whether you can do the job. You may have to show off more of your technical knowledge or offer more specific examples of past career successes. Be ready to show more insight and ability than you did in your prior preliminary interview.
  • Ask lots of questions. You also need to evaluate the potential employer and the job to see if you really would be a good fit or not. By the time you have advanced to the second interview stage, you should know a lot more about the company and can ask more informed questions for additional insight into whether you can do a good job with the work.
