What Every Employer Wants To Hear In An Interview

Ever wonder what a potential boss wants to hear in an interview? What exactly can you say that will increase your chances of receiving a job offer? Here are five things to communicate during an interview that will convince the employer you’re a great hire.

What every employer wants to hear



1. You Will Never Have To Tell Me What To Do Twice


Every employer wants to know they can give you instructions once—and you’ll get the job done. No employer wants to micromanage or ask an employee more than once to do something—no matter what it is. This is true no matter where in the world you work.

2. I Will Complete The Job/Assignment You Give Me With Excellence


The employer wants to hear that, no matter what, you are going to make it happen—that you’re going to get the job done and do it to the best of your ability.

3. I Am An Agreeable Person


The employer wants to know that no matter what situation you are put in, you’re going to be a team player—and that you’re not going to create confusion, conflict, problems, or challenge their authority.

4. I Am Easy To Correct And Instruct—I Am Teachable


If there is something that’s not getting done, or if you’re not doing it correctly, the employer wants to know that they can approach you to discuss the situation and that you’re not going to fly off the handle or think you’re superior.

In Asian countries, how you handle criticism is especially important. Blowing up at the person who delivers the feedback could cause that person to lose face – a big no-no in that part of the globe. Accept criticism with grace and respect, and race any concerns in private.

5. I Am A Loyal Employee


I will not talk poorly about you. I will do everything I can to promote you and help promote this business. While I am working for you I will always be the best employee—whether for 1 year or 10 years.

Prospective employers nowadays understand that asking employees to make a commitment to stay for 10—or even 25 years—just isn’t realistic. Loyalty isn’t about longevity. It’s about being a committed and responsible employee while you’re with that company.

These five points are essentially what every employer wants to hear from a potential employee. Of course, this isn’t an end-all, be-all of an interview, but if you can communicate these very important points to a prospective employer during an interview, it will help the interviewer to feel at ease, sense that you are a great employee, and believe that you would be an asset to the organization.
