When hiring people, what impresses you in the interview?

« Back to Previous Page

Demonstrable enthusiasm for the goals of the deparment and a desire to be part of the team. In an interview, it is important to talk about your experience and your achievements, but it is just as important to emphasize what you will bring to the table to elevate the entire team.

Candidates who have clearly done their research on our department.  Our website has lots of info on what we do, our mission, who we are and when candidates use this information in their interview answers, it demonstrates their enthusiasm, their research skills and how they’ve thought about whether our department is a good fit with their interests, experiences and goals.  We look for people who really want to do the work we do, and this research helps us gauge this factor.
