(DGIwire) – Hiring the wrong people can be extremely expensive. According to job-search website Monster, it can cost businesses one-fifth of an employee’s salary to replace them. As a result, companies are spending even more time vetting recruits to make sure they have the right skills, values and personalities, Monster reports. Going into a job interview today means being forearmed with strategies for success. Here are five items to keep in mind:
“The more preparation a job applicant has before an interview starts, the better their chances are of getting a callback,” says Michele Mavi, director of internal recruiting and content development at Atrium Staffing. “This includes being prepared to utilize a webcam and video platform to record your answers to a list of questions supplied by the employer. Also, researching the industry ahead of time enables the candidate to build rapport with the interviewer—in doing so, it shows that the applicant really understands the business and its challenges.”
Atrium is a New York City-based talent solutions firm, focused on providing contingent workforce management services for mid-size and Fortune 500 companies in nearly every industry.

“A little sensitivity to what interviewers are looking for can go a long way toward making a great impression when it counts,” Mavi adds.
