7 Things That Your Future Manager Wants To Know | Connect

Did you know that your future manager wants you to succeed? They really do. We spoke to a few managers and this is what they wish they could know:

1. Can you REALLY do the job?

They don't really care what the application or the resume says. One month later, Six month later - can you fulfil the responsibilities of the job.

2. What do others think of you?

The modern job involves collaboration and teamwork and often times it will be other individuals who will work closer with you than the manager themselves. A happy team is a happy manager.

3. You put in extra effort to learn about the company or the role.

If they're able to learn something from you from the interview, then you are one step closer to being a contributing and valuable teammate.

4. They want to know if they can like you.

After all, there will be many 1:1s and coffee chats between the two of you.  Try to make this experience as enjoyable as possible.

5. What is something they should know that isn't listed on your CV/Application?

With so many capable candidates, how can you stand out? If you can get to this point before they ask it, then you are doing well.

6. You are as interested in the role as they are in you.

The reason why they are speaking to you is that they are looking for someone who wants to do the role.  If you are interested, make sure it's clear.  If not, please let them know right away.

7. You improve their team

Interviewing, hiring and training aren't easy tasks. It takes time and effort on the part of the manager and the team.  If you can teach them something new or improve them once you join.  Then their efforts are worth it.
