Discover The 4 Emotions You Need To Make a Killer First Impression:
How To Crush Any Interview
These are great tips on how to crush any interview to get the job! One of the moments in your life where you are absolutely going to want your confidence and your charisma to be on point is when you are sitting in an interview chair because when you've arrived there, they've decided that you have what it takes to get this job but you still have to show the person across from you that you're someone that they like, that they could work with, and that you can communicate the skills that make you a good fit which is why in this video I want to show you exactly how to prep for and crush any interview and that includes answering specific questions like, "Tell me about yourself? What's your greatest weakness and tell me about a time when..." so we're going to jump right into it; I got a lot to say. The first piece is on mindsets.
The number one thing that screws people up when they get in interviews besides having not prepped, and you're here so congratulations for that, is that they just get tongue-tied — their confidence is gone — because they're putting so much pressure on the situation. And in order to alleviate this, what I recommend you do and that they do is to zoom out. Imagine yourself at 90 years old. You're looking back at your life. You see the successes, the failures, the happy moments, the sad ones, and I promise you, as you do that and you scan for the most pivotal moments in your life that we're hyper critical, you will not see the interview that you have coming up; there's no chance. It's just not going to crack something that absolutely changes the inevitable course of your life

Hey thanks for this video last Thursday I had an interview and I got the job however if it wasn't for your video and explaining if I don't get it it's not the end of the world made me more relaxed and less nervous leading to a conftable interview
Thank you for this. Watched this video before an interview. One of their questions was, “ What did you do to prepare for this interview?” I told them the steps you gave us, because that is what I did. Thank you!
Love this video! As soon as I watched this video I went to Target, they interviewed me the same day, and the guy said I interviewed phenomenally and he gave me a job. This was my first ever interview and is my first ever job. Thanks!
can i just say thank you so much for this video and the comments that everyone is contributing. i just had a skype interview and was looking at this video right before hand (oops) but i still managed to have a few stories in mind before it started. the interviewer asked me a question about getting work done under stress and i was able to tell him a recent story. i could totally tell that he was interested and believed me and we engaged a lot more more naturally and shared what we're passionate about. by the end of it, he said i was awesome and i got to the next round of interviewing
Thanks, that was super helpful, granted I am doing a 2 minute video recording interview answering two questions about "what inspires me to be involved in game design" and "what makes me a good fit for the team" but overall I think your video here is super helpful so you just earned another subscriber! :)
Just want to put this out there:
Last week I had an interview for a big government agency. It was for a paid internship. To help me through it, I watched Charlie's video. I got to say, I feel like this was what helped me snag the position!
Especially the slogan *It's not the end of the world if I don't get this job*
So thank you Charlie, for the work you do, and the content you make. You really helped me bring up my own confidence.
This video is wrong nd as an interviewer I'm fed up with people coming in to interview with this kind of bs.
This is the first job you will ever do for your employer. Your job is to help them make the right choice. Which is their choice, not yours.
Whatever brief they give you for the interview, come prepared with that. If they need educational or occupation evidence, bring it, bring all of it, up to date. If they say bring 3 evidences of identity bring 5 because they are bound to reject at least one. If they say tee ewill be a technical skill test, bring overalls, lab coat, float or whatever the ''tools of the trade' that each job might need an employee to provide. If in doubt ASK beforehand.
If a technical knowledge test is going to be applied be prepared for your interviewer to want to know the depth of your knowledge, 5 levels maybe. Not just "my professor was X" "my first employer was Y" "my first project was Z". What is Z from a customer's p.o v? how does Z work? how did you solve or address the abc problem known to be associated with Z,?what other solutions did you reject and why? why wasn't that the cheapest option? and that's 5 - there could be an infinite number of 5's. If you don't remember some, say so. But come prepared for that.
If they get to a stage where they ask - do you have anything else you think we should know? You might at that point say "can I actually pitch this to you? As though I were pitching an idea to the team or the company to a visiting customer" then use CHARISMA. not otherwise. Some employers might assume you have come to 'CRUSH it'. Some may not. If you prepare as for doing productive work you should not go far wrong.
I repeat some things in life are under your control, a job interview is not one of them. It's your interviewer's job to choose the right candidate, not yours.
I asked my boss, what she would say if someone had asked her the question you posed at the end. "What would I have to have done for you to realise this was a good decision?" Her immediate reaction was, it was wrong, rude and overconfident and would kill the interview straight away. Is she wrong? Or is that a common response? I personally thought it was a great question, but seeing it in practice makes me question whether or not I should use it at all.
10:00 about this last question... I saw this video while preparing a job interview Ive had a couple of weeks ago, and considered if I should ask it (wasnt feeling 100% about it), and when the moment came i said screw it and I did. Interesting enough, the first reaction I got from the interviewer was that she went and said, "what, do you want me to tell you how to do your job?". Fortunately we both laughed it off (the interview went pretty good all along) and she kind of refrased my question and asked something like "do you mean what do we value most in your position?" and I said yes and she told me.
Its funny because the reason I wasnt feeling really 100% about asking that question was because I was afraid that I would get pretty much the same reaction she actually had. But since you were so convinced about it I went and did it anyway.
Do you know some similar cases?
Used Charlie's Q at the end of my job interview today and the head boss literally overheard and said "WOW. What a great question! Don't you think?! to the 2IC that was interviewing me". Also found out later on (today) that I got the job. Woot thanks Charlie haha.
Who the fuck goes into an interview without preparation? Also good point about an interview starting the moment you walk through the door, people forget this point, chewing gum in reception, not being friendly, looking at your phone etc can lose you the job before you have even begun to the formal interview phase.
Charlie, I interview people day in and day out, and truly all I want to hear are stories of them being passionate, earnest, and kind. But very few tell stories, even when specifically prompted! Thank you for your video.
Amazing, as always, Charlie! Thanks! I'd say vids on !!!!Jordan Peterson!!!!, GoT, the Avengers etc. are of great interest, because it's a breakdown of familiar archetypes and concepts and it helps in the day-to-day life to have thought such through. It's a treasure, really! Keep it up!
I love it how you talk abd explain every detail of every topic but I can't focus and lose you at some point. You can make as you did before. The animation, the examples through shortcuts of other videos. I guess this will help your channel too
Hey, man. I'd like your advice for situations I find myself a lot in.
Especially when I'm with new people or with old friends who cannot be more different from me, I get invited to new places I don't feel comfortable with at all.
Especially when I get dragged into clubs I cannot seems to enjoy myself as I tag along with whatever my companions are doing.
Do have any advice on how to avoid this "Please let this evening end quickly" mindset and stay positive whereever you get yourself into?
Gave up YouTube for lent, so I’m late for the party.. but does anyone else remember when Charlie first gave the imagine me in a year line and said he was gonna end up flooding the job market? Haha I wonder
But that was a while ago and since then your channel has grown a lot. Keep up the good work because it does genuinely help a lot of people
Anyways I’m very thankful to you Charlie and I hope you see my comment even though it’s about 6 days late because you’re the reason I broke out of my shell, and for that I can’t thank you enough
P.S. good luck and I like what you’re doing with the responding to comments things
Amazing video and tips are on point and some I look forward to testing.
One point I would like to focus on and stand behind 100% is the " interview starts when you walk in" and you never know who the boss will go to for opinions.
As a sign spinning brand ambassador and local guerrilla marketer for Liberty tax for 7 years now, every year we have tax classes to staff our stores. And recruits rarely think of the guy in the dress and crown spinning and dancing as someone who has a say, but every year the Bosses ask what I think, do they fit, if so where and why..it is a part of the season I always enjoy and the fact that rarely to any ever think I am part of that interview keeps them more honest.
Have a big interview coming up a couple of weeks and these tips could be game changers. Thank you and look forward to successful updates.
Have a safe and wonderful Easter, my friend
One of the best books on this topic is "pitch anything" by oren klaff. Cause what is an interview if not a pitch of yourself? I learned a lot about frame control etc from this book, definitely go check it out! I will soon post a summary of it on my channel as well.
