More International Job Interviewing Tips
Here are some key tips and resources for helping you succeed in the international job interview.
Unlike in the U.S.:
- Age, race, gender, marital status — illegal questions in the U.S. — may be topics asked in the interview
- In certain cultures, much emphasis is placed on showing respect to elders (and especially male elders)
- Speaking too much about yourself and your accomplishments can be seen as too self-serving and individualistic
- Proceed carefully when asking about the next steps in the process as it can be seen as to forward or rude to do so
