“If you’re busy preparing for your job interview now, you could learn a lot by watching this show,” says Joe Turner.
Mr. Turner says American Idol (美国偶像) has many lessons to teach an employee about making an impression in a job interview, especially selling your strengths and skills.
To win on American Idol, “you don’t have to be the best singer, just the most memorable singer,” he said. “Same for the job interview — you don’t have to be the best employee with the top skills, but you do have to be the most memorable employee worth being hired.”
The No.1 thing in an interview and a job search is knowing your audience. For American Idol competitors, the judges and voting public are the audience; for job hunters, it’s the hiring manager.
Just as talented American Idol competitors lack confidence when singing the wrong song, job hunters can fail to be chosen when they fail to present their skills according to the employer’s needs.
“Difference” is how Mr. Turner describes the way American Idol competitors stand out among singers who may be equally good.
In the real world, the right skills, education and experience still make one’s ability different or memorable. But it’s important for the job hunter to present “something special” that he or she has to offer.
A recent survey suggests that managers often sense whether they’ll hire someone within minutes after the first handshake. Just as an Idol competitor prepares for performances, a job hunter should prepare carefully to make the first good impression.
Job hunters also can learn from past American Idol winners who proved an ability to recover from setbacks. If they can take feedback (反馈), make improvements and make sure they’re better prepared the next go-round, that will pay off eventually.
