While preparing for your interview, there are a few actions you take in advance :
Interviewing with Agero: Tips for Success
- Do your homework: Ahead of your interviews, make sure you have reviewed Agero.com, familiarizing yourself with our products, news updates, and various thought leadership pieces. Although you are unlikely to be quizzed on the products themselves, knowledge of them is always helpful context when considering various outcomes and goals associated with the role.
- Research Agero: What is it about Agero and the opportunity that drew you to apply? What do you know about us? Why did you apply for this position? Why do you want to work for us?
- Know Your Audience: You'll receive the names of the people you'll be interviewing with ahead of time - research them on LinkedIn, take a look at their background. Any commonalities? Questions? Come prepared to engage with your interviewers.
- Know your resume and come prepared to speak to your achievements: You're unique and you have unique experiences, so come prepared to share them! Your biggest win? Proudest accomplishment? Most challenging project? A customer experience you provided that you're most proud of? Be ready to share details of what went well and what – if you could take something back – you might do differently and why.
- Understand key outcomes and expectations for the role: Each Agero role comes with skills, experiences, and other requirements, but also outcomes. These outcomes detail – outside of experience - what you'll be expected to deliver near- and long-term in your role. Have you done something similar? Can you draw a connection to another project you've worked on? Be ready to share your experiences and lessons learned. Remember, we're learning from you, too.
- Transparency is key… for everyone: Interviewing is about matchmaking and the best way to match make is to be honest about one’s position. Concerns about the role? Concerns about the manager or company? Be thoughtful in doing so but share, communicate, and engage. Expect your recruiters to be transparent with you, as well. Anything from questions about your background, feedback post-interview, etc. Keep an open mind - our intent is helping you to succeed.
- Dress for success: whether you are participating in an in-person interview or a video interview, how you present yourself can signal to the interviewing company the seriousness with which you are taking the interview. Agero isn’t a suit and tie company, but we’re not a shorts and flip flops company either, so keep this in mind. Your first impression matters.
- Ensure your technology is ready to go: Video interviews are a bit different than being in the office. You should be comfortable and in a quiet location. Before your interview, make sure you are able to access Zoom, your laptop is charged, and your microphone and camera both work. If you have any questions regarding Zoom, click here for helpful resources.
- Ask questions: Although we try to be thorough in explaining what we do, there may be things we haven’t covered. We’re here to make sure you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision on your next career. Take advantage of the dedicated time you have with your interviewer.
Our last piece of advice is most important: relax, be confident, and have fun. Our approach to interviewing is conversational (not confrontational) with a focus on behavioral interviewing, so come prepared to talk about what you know best: you.
