If you are interested in the job and want a second interview, say something like this: “I am very impressed with what I have seen here today – your company, its products/services and the people I have met”.
For a sales/sales-related position “I am confident that I can do an excellent job in the position you have described to me. Ask your consultant for any tips on what the interviewer is like and then read the situation – some interviewers like you to be more pushy than others.
For positions requiring less assertiveness, “I have enjoyed talking with you. The job sounds excellent. What are your thoughts about me?” or “Do I have the right sort of experience that you are looking for?” This gives you a chance to hear the interviewer’s impressions and to counter any negative thoughts or misunderstandings that may come to light. The employer will be impressed with your enthusiasm, they may give you feedback there and then, but it is more likely that they will call your consultant with feedback.
Don’t be discouraged if no offer of a second interview is made or specific salary discussed at the first interview. The employer will probably want to communicate with Media Contacts first before making a decision.
Remember to thank the employer for his time. If you have answered the two questions uppermost in the employer’s mind, namely, “Why are you interested in his company?” and “What can you offer?” then you have done all that you can.
Lastly, but most importantly, call your consultant after each interview. If you are keen and interested in the position, your consultant will stress this to the person that interviewed you – this will greatly increase your chances of getting to the next interview stage.
