5 Signs That A Job Interview Went Well

You’ve applied to multiple jobs and been shortlisted by various companies. Next, you’ve secured and appeared for a job interview. Congratulations! However, there’s still one question that’s in your mind: Was my job interview successful?

If you’re wondering the answer to the above question, this blog post is for you! Read on to know the 5 signs that indicate that your job interview went well.

  • The interview went on for a long time

It’s possible that the interviewer was extremely interested in knowing you as a person, and hence an interview continued for a long time. Hence, one of the most positive signs that a job interview has gone well is if the interview went on longer than expected. Keep in mind that a long interview may also indicate that the interviewer took a lot of time to evaluate the candidate and get convinced about the candidate’s suitability, so the length of the interview and the nature of the conversation are both important considerations while judging whether an interview went well.

  • You felt engaged during the interview process

You must feel like the interviewer is interested in learning more about you as a person. If the interviewer is interested in listening to and answering your questions, and you feel that you can naturally hold a conversation with the interviewer, it is a positive sign. The best interviews must feel like a conversation and not like an interrogation.

  • You are told your roles and responsibilities in detail

Your roles and responsibilities are crucial for you to know so that you can perform tasks well once you are hired for the job. During the job interview process, if you are informed about your duties and responsibilities in detail, it indicates that the interviewer has already visualised what it would be like to work with you and hence wants you to have a high level of clarity about your tasks.

  • You are asked about your availability

Your availability is important for a company to know so that they can know when tasks will be performed by you, once you are hired. After the interview, you may be asked about your availability. This means that you are a strong candidate in the interviewer's mind, and they are eager to know when you can start working with the company.

  • The interviewer tells you when you can expect to hear back

Applicants are interested in knowing when they can hear back after the final round of the interview. If an interviewer tells you when they will notify you about your job application status, it is an indication that they are interested in hiring you. You may be provided with a specific date so that the company can prepare for the onboarding process.

  • The interviewer tells you about further rounds of interview

Usually, there are multiple rounds of interviews a candidate goes through before getting selected at an organisation. If an interviewer tells you about the next round of interviews, it indicates that you have cleared the current round. (for which you have appeared for the interview)

  • The interviewer asks you to share documents

If an interviewer asks you to share specific documents like the offer letter of your previous company, the salary slip, a copy of your educational certificates, etc., it is a sign that they are considering you for the job role.

  • The interviewer is interested in your work experience

Suppose an interviewer takes an interest in your previous experience and asks you questions regarding the same. In that case, it may mean that they have been trying to evaluate whether you will perform well in the current role based on your experience and hence you may have high chances of getting selected.
