What Does It Mean To Get A Second Interview?

Question: What does getting a second interview mean?

Answer: Throughout the hiring process, you might encounter certain challenges or hurdles that you weren’t expecting. Relax! A second interview means that the hiring company wants to know more about you and your skills and is still weighing you against some other candidates.

You haven’t got the job yet. But this company is choosy and you have made it through the first round.

After your initial application you might have to get ready for a series of interview, rather than one. Sometimes you have to be ready for an entire panel of interviewers, which can be tough. We’re going to talk about what it means to get a second interview and how you can prepare.

At this stage you are likely one among many candidates all vying for the same position. Your resume and cover letter at this point should be cues for anecdotes rather than bullet points. A resume is looked over in less than a minute. But you can use the brevity of it to your advantage. Create talking points from each bullet point and highlight of your resume. This is your chance to outline your relevant skills and accomplishments.
