📼 Yes, that’s right- a remote job interview is the place to toot your own horn! Get super-valuable tips from Sophia Hall, a Senior Recruiter for Sales at Splunk, who’ll take you through the company values and culture and help you with some insights into the interview process.
📼 How should you prepare for a remote job interview? The first recruiter tip is to be well prepared: If you can show how you researched the company, the role, and the interviewer themselves, that means you'll want to learn as much as possible about Splunk's products, their go-to-market strategy, competitors, and challenges. And this is what recruiters like Sophia want to see! You can find a lot of great info on Splunk's website, on their YouTube channels (there’s a bunch of them!), and by researching what customers and analysts have to say about the company. Make sure that you review the job description and familiarize yourself with the skills and experiences the particular role demands. And don’t forget to look up your interviewer on LinkedIn, and learn as much as you can about them. Finding something in common is always a great way to break the ice at the beginning of an interview!
📼 Prepare the setting for your remote job interview with these tips: First and most importantly, make sure that you're in a quiet space. Do show up on time! Ensure that you have a clear connection and the most recent version of whatever software you'll need to avoid any technical snags. What about the dress code? Casual is completely fine. Splunk’s a tech company, so there's absolutely no need to wear a suit. Do treat the interview like a regular one. Don't get distracted by notifications on your computer or your phone! Keep in mind that they can be just as distracting to your interviewer as they are to you.
