As a career strategist I've had the honour of being able to help numerous

professionals land their dream job offers and if this is something that

you're interested in learning how to stand out and get hired from me then I

will give you details about that at the end of this video I get it between the

time that you're done an interview and the time that you hear back from them

the employer for the next steps is the time where you're probably wondering to

yourself I wonder how I did and you're overanalyzing and thinking about how you

performed and whether or not they liked you you might even say to yourself I

wish I knew some hints that could indicate whether or not they'll move

forward with me well I'm here to help you with that here are four questions to

ask yourself that will point you in the direction of knowing whether or not the

interviewers are interested in potentially moving forward with you

question number one how long was the interview

the length of the interview is the biggest sign that will help you to

determine whether they were truly interested in you or not it's simple if

the interview went over time then this is potentially a good sign it's not

always the case but it could be a good sign

now if the interview went under time or it was just hitting the exact timeframe

that they had scheduled it for then either they also really liked you and

they were just really efficient you were both very efficient in the interview or

they just wanted to get the interview over with now a lot of people are going

to ask me well how much time is a good length of time and the truth is it

depends it really depends on the stage of the interview that you're in so if

it's the first level phone interview you wouldn't expect an a phone interview to

take an hour or two hours if it's an in-person interview then that can be

different so again it all depends on the stage of the interview that you're at

and also the interviewer themselves maybe they're very efficient in

interviews and they can make a decision quickly just by meeting you for 15 20 30

minutes so at the end of the day don't take it

- seriously if you went under time for your interview but like I say of a good

rule of thumb is to look at the length of time if it went longer than what

they've allocated then that is a good sign

question number two was the interviewer prepared a good way to tell if the

interviewer is seriously interested in hiring you is if they show up to the

interview prepared this is also a good indication of the quality of the job and

the organization that you're interviewing at the more prepared the

interviewer is hopefully the better the opportunity is as well so if the

interviewer is prepared and they ask you well thought-out questions

it means that they're taking their hiring process seriously and so long as

you've answered their questions in a strategic convincing and confident way

you've done a great job now if the interviewer wasn't prepared and instead

they asked you to come up with questions for them this is a bad sign it means

that they're not taking their search seriously and thus they're potentially

not only not interested in hiring you but probably not interested in hiring

anyone question number three did they seem intrigued with your answers this

comes down to body language and how they interacted with you if the interviewer

has wide eyes they are smiling they're nodding and you can sense that they're

listening to you intently because they're engaged and because you're

engaging those are all great signs that the interviewer is interested in you but

if for some reason they come off as standoffish reserved uninterested bored

then that might be an indication that they may not be as keen on you as a job

candidate also pay attention to whether they asked you follow up questions on

little details that you had mentioned during the interview if you find that

they're engaged then they would likely be asking you questions about things

that you had mentioned so that's a good sign as well and finally question number

four - ask yourself to determine if the interviewer was interested in you or not

is did it feel like a natural conversation getting to know each other

or was it a stiff Q&A remember that the goal of the interview is not to make it

a stiff and answer period but a natural

conversation where both you and the interviewer are getting to know each

other I've had many people tell me that it is hard to be able to read the

interviewers facial expressions and their body language and sometimes even

going through all of these questions you still won't really know if the

interviewer was interested in you or not but use these questions as a guide and

hopefully they'll help you to shape the way that you interact in your next

interview as well so there you have it my four signs to help you determine

whether or not the interviewer is potentially interested in hiring you now
