You’ve read it right! You can, or should I say, you should assess your prospect boss when you’re on interview. I know it’s a bit awkward to do this considering applicants are the ones after the job. However, you have the right to choose your job and your employer, and therefore the right to evaluate them as well. To guide you in the quest of finding the right job for you, here are some relevant tips in evaluating your boss while you’re on job interview:

1.       Define what you want and don’t want in a job. Before anything else, you need to create a basis for your assessment. List the characteristics of a desirable job, as well as the things that make a job unpleasant for you. You can’t always have the best. Nevertheless, it’s not an enough excuse for you to accept what is intolerable for you. Among the things you should consider are the work schedule, level of stress, support and training, working atmosphere, career advancement, salary range, as well as your interest on job nature and its accompanied tasks.

2.       Know you’re worthy. You are “something” considering the employer got interested on interviewing you. Hence, don’t hesitate to “interview” the boss whenever there is an opportunity during the job interview. Don’t be shy to ask because it will get you nowhere. You’d either loss the job, or have the job but found yourself discontented with it. To help you boost your confidence in asking, groom yourself up and dress well for your job interview. Aside from empowering yourself with the right qualifications, you should also make your worth visible through your good looks.

3.       Make yourself comfortable with the interviewing atmosphere. Arrive early than what is scheduled. This way you’ll have more time getting used to the interviewing atmosphere. Don’t be busy with your cellphone. Instead focus in making yourself comfortable during interview. Know the people who are facilitating the interview. Get familiar with the area, especially where the interview will take place. This way you’ll be more comfortable to ask what you want to know about the job. You may also find clues and answers just by observing keenly. Next>>>
