Manage the bioscience interview

tip 49 - manage the bioscience interview

You got a bioscience interview! Congratulate yourself!  You have passed so many hurdles.

Now don’t blow it by being too eager! Be professional and take control of each bioscience interview from the beginning.

  • Choose a time to interview that will allow you to be completely up to speed.
  • See if they will give you the name of the person who will be interviewing you on the phone.  
  • Review what you are bringing to the table, but more important, what problem the company is trying to solve.  
  • Which of your dragon-slaying stories fits this job?  
  • Which words do you want on the tip of your tongue so you sound like a member of the tribe?

A recruiter works, by definition, for the hiring company

Job search  A recruiter works, by definition, for the hiring company as that is who pays them

Most recruiters don’t have time to work with candidates and a candidate really can’t “hire a recruiter”.  You can hire a coach and you can work with an agency.  But it has been illegal for an agency to charge you for “finding you a job”, especially if they don’t fulfill that promise. 

I cannot bring myself to simply ignore really great people with excellent skill sets for whom I don’t currently have a potential role, nor those who “came in second” for jobs I do have.  So I have been “giving advice” or casually coaching these people for years.  I started writing this blog and sending out a free newsletter.  Now I’m teaching classes in how to manage your own career, find jobs through your network and really maintain your career network.  I’d love to have you join me.

I’ll post more about the paid classes if I get enough interest.  Tell me you are interested by signing up for the free class or emailing me at connie@biosciencejobkit.com
