[infographic] How to Interview Millennials

  1. 1. 1. What kind of interview should you schedule? THE RUN DOWN Over half of millennials say meeting in person is their preferred form of communication. PRO TIP Spend the first few minutes of your interview building rapport and pitching your company. You want students to be at ease and fully sold on your position from the get go. THE RUN DOWN Quick and convenient, but most millennials aren’t comfortable on the phone. PRO TIP For millennials the voicemail is dead. Set up your phone interview by email and layout how long the call will be so students can schedule accordingly. THE RUN DOWN Quicker than meeting in person, but prone to technical difficulties. PRO TIP Inform students how they should dress for your virtual interview. This will take stress off your applicants and allow you both to focus on what matters. If you’ve opted for the in-person interview, put thought into actual location of the interview, and the message each place sends. 2. Location, Location, Location Conference Room THE RUN DOWN A conference room is a good, private space to have an honest conversation about the company, position, and each other, swivel-y chairs and all. PRO TIP This one’s obvious, but be sure to clean up the conference room before your interviewee arrives. Showing respect from the get go makes a big difference with young hires. In the Office THE RUN DOWN A more intimate space that puts your personality on display. PRO TIP Given that this is a more intimate interview location, we recommend starting the interview with rapport building. It will help your candidate settle in and get to know you. Over Coffee THE RUN DOWN An informal interview location that demonstrates your casual work culture. Be weary of noise and the potential for a lack of privacy. PRO TIP Arrive a few minutes early so you can find a table in a good, quiet location. 3. Talking About You Professional Growth The #1 criteria students look for in picking a place to work is the opportunity for long term career advancement. Company Culture This should be honed to concrete areas. Work/life balance? Education? Community impact? An offbeat sense of humor? Don’t be afraid to be different. 4. Talking About Them Here’s What You Should Showcase What was your most rewarding project? Use a coding interview, either on a whiteboard or on a computer, to ask increasingly challenging questions (often times to failure). Pick up any topic of hobby you have, assume I know nothing about it and explain it to me. At the end, I should know whatever is most important about the subject. What kind of goals motivate you best? What were some of your top goals from the last three years and did you achieve them? How do you keep a smile on your face during a hard day? Sales What is your favorite Twitter/Instagram account and why? Tell me the story behind why you applied here Case questions: Draw a funnel on the board with 10,000 visitors, 500 leads, 50 opportunities and 10 new customers. Where should we focus on improving? Marketing/Social Media Every Millennial knows they’re supposed to come into an interview with questions, so if they don’t have any, they either didn’t get the memo or decided you aren’t worth it–so neither are they. The most important part about answering questions is to be honest and straightforward. Millennials want authenticity in a brand, whether they’re buying it or repping it. And they know when they’re being pandered to. 5. Do You Have Any Questions For Me? Millennials grew up with terabytes of information at their fingertips. They should have researched your company enough to known what you do and how you do it. 6. Salary & Negotiation By the time you’ve reached the interview stage for your intern or new grad hire you should have a salary in mind. Here are some DOs and DON’Ts for talking salary.

Engineering Millennials know the commonly asked interview questions. They know multiple ways to answer them. And while it’s important to ask the basic questions, get out of the box. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3. Offer all interns at least minimum wage (it’s the law at nearly all for-profit companies). Sell the learning experience and amazing team and culture you provide first and foremost (this is what millennials care about most!). Have a number in mind to offer. 1. 2. 3. Take advantage of a new grads lack of negotiation experience. Offer a fair wage and don’t force them to come up with their own salary as most new grads don’t have the context for this. Assume that once a salary is set, the deal is sealed. Send your new hire an offer letter and get them to sign. 1. 2. HOW TO INTERVIEW MILLENNIALS PRESENTS Social Impact According to a survey by Deloitte, 27% of millennials vs 13% of business leaders believe a business should focus on improving society. Innovation In the US over 70% of millennials consider themselves to be innovative. They want to work somewhere that is innovative too!
