Whether you’re applying for a position at a large company or a job at a growing startup, the potential employer will likely have to go through a lot of applications and make some tough decisions before settling on a particular candidate. When you apply, your first impression is often a lasting one, so it’s vital to leave a positive impression during the hiring process.

So, what’s the best way to leave a lasting impression on a potential employer? ten members of Council for Young Entrepreneurs consider what you can do to prepare and what to say during the interview to put your best foot forward.

1. Show business knowledge beyond the basics

One of the best ways to make a strong impression is to display an in-depth knowledge of the business, going beyond the basics. Showing that you’ve researched and understand the industry and the unique challenges the company faces will set you apart from other job applicants. † Kalin Kassabov ProTexting

2. Explain how to be a team asset

Employers want to hire people who can add value to the team. So if you want to leave a lasting impression on the interviewer, tell them how you can be an asset to their team. Use past examples to show how you solved a problem or achieved something. This will help you stand out and have a positive impact on the interviewer. † Josh Kohlbach Wholesale Suite

3. Demonstrate learning, but show humility

I don’t want you to be the smartest person in the room; I want you to have the most integrity. If you made a mistake in a previous job, but tell me in an interview how you made it right and never repeated the mistake, I will respect your honesty. It shows me that you are growth oriented and don’t shy away from responsibility or accountability when the going gets tough. † Trivinia Hairdresser PriorityVA

4. Prepare more than a simple answer

An excellent way to impress an interviewer is to have more than a simple answer ready for questions you know will be asked. Instead, try to have a story ready that is entertaining, memorable, and shows your worth. People work from stories, and this will help you stand out by associating your skills with something more likely to stick in their brain. † Salvador Ordorica The Spanish Group LLC

5. Ask the interviewer about themselves

To leave a lasting impression, ask the interviewer about themselves and how they got to where they are today. It shows a growth mindset and will give the interviewer the impression that you see him as a potential mentor. † Jason Azevedo MRCA

6. Know what the company is looking for

Know what the interviewer and company are looking for. Mention skills, achievements, and awards that will be checked off their list of requirements that an applicant should look for. This means reading the job description, identifying what they’re looking for, and answering questions before they ask, making their job easier. † Daisy Jing Banned

7. Let honesty and your personality shine through

Be honest! Stay yourself! It is very easy to see through someone who is very practiced (very different than prepared) and someone who is dishonest. Honesty will always shine through. † Zane Stevens Protea Financial

8. Find common ground before the interview

If you want to leave a lasting impression, try to find common ground before the interview. This can be done by researching people in the company and looking at their backgrounds and activities on LinkedIn. See if you have any shared connections or groups or if you have something in common that would be a good conversation starter. This will help break the ice. † Syed Balkan WPBeginner

9. List Reputable References

I am always impressed when applicants give me a list of reputable references. We deliberately make this part of the application process optional. It’s interesting to see how willing people are to let you connect with their ex-boss and co-workers. The way I see it, the more references the better. † John Brackett Smash Balloon LLC

10. Be honest about your skills and experience

The best way to leave a lasting impression is to be authentic. It is important to be honest about your skills and experience and present it in the best possible light. It is also important to show that you are a team player, not just someone who wants to work alone. You can do this by volunteering or providing feedback on ways the business can improve. † Kristin Kimberly Marquet Marquet Media, LLC
