Understanding whether the interview has been successful or not successful is a bit tricky. Interviewers do not want to show interviewees the picture of what is the result of the interview but from their language and gesture, you can tell if the interview was successful or failure. Here are some of the indicators of successful job interviews.
1. Engaging in a casual discussion with the interviewer. The interview shifts from just an interrogation of questions and answers and continues to a casual chat as you laugh at each other’s jokes, ignore the formal procedure; know that you are on the right track. You have already caught the interviewer’s interest.
2. When the interviewer starts making the efforts to sell you the job. He starts showing the advantages of working with the company, why you should welcome an opportunity of working with them and trying to develop your interest in the company, just know he’s choosing for you this job.
3. They ask when you will be ready to work. If after the interviewer asks when you will be ready to start work should you be successful, just know you are the leading candidate so far in the race of getting that job.
4. Putting you in their future plan of the company. At the end of the interview, the interviewer is already telling you how they will need your skills and services in the company’s future projects; it’s an indication that you have showcased yourself very well.
5. They ask to talk to you for the second time. If after the interview, the interviewer asks you to schedule for the second interview or another official meeting, then the interview has been successful.
6. The interviewer seems excited talking with you, gives you smiles and a positive body language, it’s a gesture that you have made it. But should the interviewer look bored, avoiding eye contact or looking at the clock every time, just know you have failed.
7. Your interview exceeds the normal time. The interview duration is 10 minutes, but surprisingly, yours surpasses those minutes and goes beyond to 15 or 20; know that the interviewer has found you interesting.
The most sure and obvious way of confirming whether the job interview was successful or not is being called back by the company telling you that you have been chosen.
