Nolan Church, a former Google and DoorDash recruiter, has revealed the main blunder that candidates should avoid during the crucial selection process.

Why do people fail at interviews?

According to Church, failing to highlight one’s promotion history on both the CV and LinkedIn may give the appearance of professional stagnation.

Church emphasises, however, that this inaccuracy is eclipsed by a more serious blunder: failing to undertake extensive research on the prospective company and the specific function.

What does he suggest?

Church voiced concern during an interview with CNBC Make It about candidates who arrive unprepared, having done little research on the firm, the role, and even the interviewers.

This lack of preparation, he says, is a “massive red flag.” Understanding the organisation and the obligations of the role, in his opinion, is critical to demonstrating genuine interest and dedication. 

The tendency for candidates to put on a planned show during interviews is one of the red flags identified by the Church. He detects a lack of spontaneity and observes that some candidates prioritise number above quality, resulting in lengthy but empty responses.

“They say a lot of words but nothing meaningful,” he stated. Authenticity and meaningful engagement, he stresses, are crucial aspects that interviewees should prioritize. 

How does a successful interview look? 

In contrast, Church highlights a successful interview tactic that consistently impresses him. He values candidates who contribute to his learning during the interview process. 

Describing an exemplary experience, he recalls an interviewee who provided a comprehensive plan for growing a business-to-business, software-as-a-service company. According to Church, such interviews are like “masterclasses” that leave a lasting impression. 

Church advises candidates to look for natural opportunities to contribute their views and knowledge in order to stand out positively in an interview. He advises not straining the topic but encourages job seekers to seize opportunities when the interviewer asks about their experiences. 

Candidates can offer relevant tales that set the backdrop, explain preconceived beliefs, highlight lessons learned, and connect those insights to their current job using an organized framework. 

Church emphasises that the greatest candidates shine in the latter stages of this framework, exhibiting a growth attitude and a humble approach. Candidates can portray themselves as constant learners by incorporating useful lessons into the conversation, a feature highly valued by recruiters in today’s job market.
