If you’re interviewing for IT jobs that you really want, it’s not enough to just go through the motions of basic preparation with your IT recruiters and IT staffing firms. Your best bet to really wow your interviewers (and by extension, your technical recruiters and IT recruiting companies) is to work on a few ‘secret weapons’ that will really elevate your performance in the interview. Here’s one ‘secret weapon’ you should really try to cultivate: Ask the interviewer how your work will impact and aid the company in reaching its major goals.
Why would you ask this question? It will show that you’re interested in not just the role, but how you can be a stellar employee that contributes to the company as a whole. IT staffing companies and IT recruiting agencies have no problem placing candidates who can see the big picture. Hiring managers don’t just want somebody who wants to complete their own tasks. They’d love to get somebody who will contribute to their team and the company as a whole. This kind of employee understands bigger priorities and requires less management and puts out better results.
