Interview tips and insights

Succeeding in job interviews takes confidence that comes with practice and research. To help you be more successful, here is some information to help you prepare.

Review your résumé; be sure that it is accurate and up to date

Be ready to talk about real-life examples that are relevant to the job you’re applying for. This includes past experiences, similar team situations and examples of innovation in your current job.

Conduct Research on the Employer and Job Opportunity

Do your homework and research People’s United and the industry, so you are ready for the interview question, "What do you know about this company?" If this question is not asked, you should try to demonstrate what you know about us on your own. You can do this by tying what you’ve learned about us into your responses. You should be able to find out a lot of information about our company’s history, mission and values, staff, culture, and recent successes on this website. In addition to checking our website out, you can look at and follow us on social media.

Arrive on Time, Relaxed and Prepared for the Interview

Be sure to allow yourself enough time to get to the location of your interview. If you are running late, make sure to call in advance to advise the interviewer. Remember, that arriving too early is not necessary; 5 -10 minutes before the interview is plenty of time. The day before the interview, pack up extra copies of your resume. Also remember to pack several pens and a pad of paper to jot notes. Finally, as you get to the offices, shut off your cell phone.

Be Authentic, Upbeat, Focused, Confident, Candid, and Concise

Once the interview starts, the key to success is the quality and delivery of your responses. Your goal should always be authenticity, responding truthfully to interview questions. At the same time, your goal is to get to the next step, so you’ll want to provide focused responses that showcase your skills, experience, and fit with the job and the employer. Provide solid examples of solutions and accomplishments but keep your responses short and to the point. Finally, no matter how much you may believe it’s justified, never badmouth a previous employer, boss, or co-worker. The interview is about you and making your case that you are the ideal candidate for the job.

Make A Good First Impression

A cardinal rule of interviewing is to be polite and offer warm greetings to everyone you meet from the parking attendant, to the receptionist, to the hiring manager. Employers often are curious how job applicants treat staff members and your job offer could easily be derailed if any of your meetings are less than positive. When it’s time for the interview, keep in mind that first impressions the impression interviewers get in the first few seconds of meeting you can make or break an interview. Remember that having a positive attitude and expressing enthusiasm for the job and employer are vital in the initial stages of the interview; studies show that hiring managers make critical decisions about job applicants in the first 20 minutes of the interview.

Thank Interviewer(s) in Person, by Email, or Postal Mail

Common courtesy and politeness go far in interviewing; thus, the importance of thanking each person who interviews you should come as no surprise. Start the process while at the interview, thanking each person who interviewed you before you leave. Ask everyone you meet with for a business card so you have their contact information. Writing thank-you emails or notes shortly after the interview will not get you the job offer, but doing so will certainly give you an edge over any of the other finalists who didn’t bother to send thank-you notes.
