Debunking 3 Interview Myths and Misconceptions With Recruiters from Okta and Auth0

💎 Preparation for a job interview is surrounded by many myths and misconceptions. Listen to these recruiters' advice to debunk the myths and prepare for landing your dream job!

📼In this video, you'll hear from Trudy Curto, Senior Manager of Talent Marketing at Okta, and Lisa Semerdjian, Senior Recruiter at Auth0, now part of the Okta family, as they reveal the truth around common interview myths.

📼 So what exactly are the most common interview myths and misconceptions? For starters, there's this one that goes "if you don't hear back from a recruiter in a certain amount of time at any stage during the interview, it means you didn't get the job." This is a total myth. Application processes are not the same for every company, so there's not an exact period of time when you'll get your answer. Just be patient!

📼 Another interview myth, or misconception, is that the interview process is a one-way street. If this were true, the interview would only be about the recruiter or interviewer asking questions and gauging if you're a fit for the role. This is a total myth. It's really important to make sure that the role (and company) are the right fit for you. So remember, you're interviewing the company as well.

Interview Myths - Last, but not least

The last myth or misconception is that if you apply for a role and you don't get the job, you can never work at the company in the future. This is a huge myth.
