Competition for employment is becoming fiercer than ever. It is up to job candidates to work hard to leave a strong impression on their potential employers. They have to work hard on getting their desired job by playing the field and think like a game changer. They have to be informed and seriously prepared to make their mark during an interview. Although nothing can guarantee a candidate getting hired, it is still a universal principle to use certain phrases to charm the interviewer. Here are eight phrases that will certainly put a smile on your interviewer’s face.
1. “I guaranteed results in the past.”
Employers are interested to know that new hires will get the job done. According to career coach Ronald Kaufman, job candidates who include the word results in their interview always have a higher success of getting the job. Interviewers will believe that you will give them the results they want, in the way that they want them.
2. “I am an agreeable person.”
The employer is concerned if he is hiring a team player or not. The interviewer will love to know that you are not going to cause conflict, problems, confusion or always stand up against authority.
3. “I am really excited about that.”
Interviewers want to see how positive and excited a job candidate is for a position in their company. People who are more passionate are better motivated and propelled to deliver results. Although this phrase sounds interesting to the interviewer the job candidate should do well to back his enthusiasm with some knowledge about the company, its mode of operation and how it can get better than competition with its product and services.
4. “I am teachable.”
The employer is concerned about your progress when you become an employee. Being stagnated in knowledge will not help the company’s objective. If there is something that is not done right, the employer wants to know that they can approach you to discuss the situation. If you are teachable, easy to correct and instruct, the interviewer will be glad.
5. “I can be flexible.”
According to career coach Andrea Ballard, today’s workplace is changing at a rapid rate. Whatever skills you have brought in to the workplace may be relevant and successful, but what will come out of it in the future. Job candidates will have to be able to change and adapt quickly in today’s fast paced work environment. Interviewers will be excited to have this knowledge if a job candidate highlights this important trait.
6. “I am a loyal employee.”
Loyalty is important to any employer. Such phrase signals to your interviewer that you are dependable and that you won’t rat on their business even if things don’t work out. Employers these days know that there is no point in trying to ask for the commitment of an employee to stay for 9 or perhaps 15 years. However loyalty is not how long you stay in the company, rather it is about being a responsible and committed employee while you stay at the company.
7. “I will complete every task you give me with excellence.”
The employer wants to know that you are not one of those who whines and complains about a job, but is focused on doing the job and completing it earnestly. Getting the job doesn’t mean you simply do it haphazardly, but you do it to the best of your ability.
8. “You won’t need to tell me what to do twice.”
Every employer knows that great employees are the ones who are attentive and instructive. Employers want to know that once they give you an instruction you will go ahead to get the job done rather than play around and waiting for another instruction. No employer wants to be repeating instructions or micromanaging an employee.
