Closing your interview with the “60-second sell”

2022-06-08T11:09:51+01:00 June 7th, 2022|News, All, Recruitment|

For many candidates, the ending of an interview is the most terrifying portion of the process. While you want to end on a high note and say something insightful that will stick with them, you also don’t want to come out as arrogant or condescending.

We’ll take a look at the 60-second sell in this blog post. This is a method that can help you close an interview effectively and leave the interviewer with the greatest possible impression of you as a candidate and potential employee of their company.

You can use the 60-second sell to pique an employer’s attention. It’s similar to a business card, but it’s spoken. Once you’ve mastered the 60-second sell, you’ll notice a substantial improvement in future interviews, acquire confidence, and have the final tool you need to obtain your dream job. The interviewer will be able to recollect who you are and what you can do.

So, how does it work?

You can tell the interview is winding down. You’ve asked your questions, and the interviewer has discussed the following steps in their hiring process. Most people would say goodbye at this point, but not you! Instead, you’ll say something like this:

“I appreciate the opportunity to learn more about your company and the position today. It is one I am very interested in. Finally, I’d want to summarise what I believe I can contribute to this role.”

After that, you employ a five-point agenda. This is the point at which you assessed yourself and your abilities. You next choose your five most marketable points and illustrate them throughout the interview, reiterating them at the end in your ‘verbal business card’ or ’60 second sale,’ if you prefer.

You are providing your potential employer with something straightforward to remember about you and showing them how you will meet their demands as a business owner and employer by repeating and revisiting these five marketing points naturally and easily.

This strategy is extremely effective because after you’re done, you just say thank you, goodbye, and walk away. This provides the interviewer with the information they require to assess you as a potential new employee for their company.

When interviewers are interviewing a large number of candidates for the same position, the individuals can start to blend together. You can stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons if you use the 60-second pitch correctly.
