How to get past the recruiter or hiring manager – top tips from Datadog’s Recruiting team.
Take the call from a quiet space
Confidence/assertiveness (focus on tone of voice)
Avoid use of filler words such as um or like
Show vs. Tell
Avoid buzzwords- like “crush it” or “kill it”
Research the Company:
Preparation is key, especially for an entry level role.
Research the company: Tips: look at company LinkedIn, website, twitter and mention something you saw (i.e.: ranking, new product, blog post) - avoid mentioning GlassDoor
Research the role: Tips: read the job description - pay attention to the responsibilities
Research the interviewer: Tips: look up the interviewer’s LinkedIn
Why You Qualify for the Job:
Strengths: Think of examples from school or internships. Avoid sharing too much.
Weaknesses: Use weaknesses as areas for development or turn them into things you’d like to work on and develop
Find a way to stand out
Tailor your background to the job: get creative and draw parallels to your experience
Discuss why you: 1.) want the role, and 2.) want to be at the company.
Ask questions, but good questions:
Curiosity is one of the traits we look for in our sales people
Good questions dig into the company, the day to day of the role
Traits of people who have been promoted?
What are you looking for in your next hire?
Training/ramp for the role?
Do not ask these bad questions:
Company culture or pay
Know who you're talking to: Do not ask what someone’s role is
Don’t ask about office location.
What kind of snacks do you have in the office?
Wine and Wisdom
