Closing the Interview

It is important that you leave the interview expressing enthusiasm about the position as well as uncovering any doubts the interviewer has about you as a viable candidate for the position. Below is an example of how to close an interview.

Sample talking points

  • “I’m very interested in the position. Now that we have met, what reservations or questions do you have about my qualifications or ability to do the job?” After asking the question, it is necessary to be patient and wait for a response. The interviewer’s response may be all that stands between you and the position that you desire.
  • If the interviewer’s response is “none,” ASK FOR THE JOB. For example, “Great, what else do you need from me to move forward to the next step?” Remember the last impression is a lasting impression.
  • If the interviewer states a reservation, respond with a description of actual work experience in your background that may not have been disclosed in the interview, or illustrate a similar work experience. Give a specific example and paint a verbal picture of that experience.
  • If they offer you the position, and you want it, accept it on the spot. If you need some time to think it over, be courteous and tactful in asking for time. Set a definite date for giving a specific answer. Don’t create the impression you are playing one company against another to drive up the bidding.
  • Don’t be discouraged if no definite offer or specific salary is discussed.
  • Ask for a tour of the offices or facility.
