This tip is more geared toward those candidates who have come into Emerald, interviewed with a recruiter and are moving forward to an interview with the client. The interview, at least initially, is about the company’s requirements. It is considering hiring and paying you to fill a void. You must prove you can fill the employers’ particular needs – That you can remove pain, solve problems, fix customer issues, save time or money, generate more revenue, build upon profits, and/or reverse declining market share. Yes, you will be choosing a company that fits “your” needs too, but your primary focus is to influence them to want to know more and ultimately, extend an offer.
