Next 5 Things an Interviewer Expects but Never Tells You-2 Next

Impact Statements

Interviewers want real impact statements.

Simply put, interviewers want proof to back up what you say.

When you're asked to "talk about a time when you overcame a problem," don't just tell them the story of how you conquered the company email database, making it more user-friendly. Tell them how your solution impacted the company. Did the company newsletters reach 250 more people? Did it allow you to grow your client base by 15 percent?

Even the best told story isn't as interesting to an interviewer as cold, hard facts.

We've all had those interviews. You've done your research on the company. You have great answers lined up for the most frequently asked questions. You've even spent time looking at those really weird questions that interviewers love to throw at you to see how you deal with a curve ball. You're dressed for success. You're ready. Unfortunately, the interviewer really doesn't seem interested from the start.

According to Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, even if you give stellar responses in an interview, an interviewer expects other things but never tells you. In this slideshow, we've highlighted Huhman's five insights that can help you during your next interview.
