3 Ways To Be Memorable During An InterviewAriella Coombson June 14, 2024 at 3:00 pm Work It Daily


When you go into a job interview, your goal is to make a good impression, right? Kind of. The goal is to make a memorable impression—you want them to automatically think of you when someone asks, “Who should we hire?”

How can you make such a powerful impression? Here are the best ways to be memorable during an interview.

Show Genuine Enthusiasm During The Interview

We’ve hired several people since I started at Work It DAILY.

Since we’re a small company, I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of the hiring process. One thing that we always remember in a job candidate is enthusiasm.

We, like many other companies, want our employees to be excited about the work, the team, and the culture. If we sense a lack of enthusiasm—or worse, no enthusiasm at all—that candidate won’t move on to the next step.

Don’t Be Afraid To Show The Interviewer Your Personality

No one wants to work with a robot. Don’t act like one in your interview!

You have a great personality. Show it off! Be yourself. People remember personality. Your personal brand represents who you are and what you’re all about—professionally and personally.

When you strip your brand of any flavor, how do you think anyone is going to remember you?

Send A Thank-You Note After The Interview

This is a biggie. If you don’t send a thank-you note after an interview, you’re pretty much out of the running.

Why? Well, first off, it’s only respectful to thank the people who interviewed you for taking the time to talk with you. But also, if you really want the job, you’ll do everything you can to get an edge over your competition. If you skip the thank-you note and your competition sends one, it could mean the difference between you getting the job offer or them when it’s time to decide (and, believe me, you’re not getting points for skipping this step).

Sending a thank-you note also gives you one last chance to connect with your interviewer and potential teammates. It’s worth it, and it’s the last thing that you can do to be memorable instead of just another job applicant.

The goal of every interview is for you to stand out from other candidates. The more top-of-mind you are to your interviewer, the better your chances are of moving on in the hiring process. So, follow the tips above to be memorable in your next job interview and clearly stand out from the competition.
