Today we have some tips for a having a good exchange, which is the basis of a successful annual interview. Since the interview is all about you, it’s important that you understand how to best use the time.
Here are a few tips that you can use:
Be an actor
Usually, the manager takes the initiative to schedule the interviews. However we ourselves are the first to be responsible for our personal development, so you are encouraged to take the initiative as well. You can also propose objectives. The more you are involved in setting objectives for yourself, the more likely you are to be committed to them.
Make sure to have a few key questions or key talking points ready to bring up. As much as your manager should prepare for the meeting, it’s also important for you to come prepared.
Keep in mind that Campus allows you to prepare directly in the system in your “2017 Performance Interview” form.
Important: Note that the content of this form is visible to both parties (your manager and you). To allow the other party to comment or modify the form, be sure you always click on “save and close” when you leave the form.
Ask For Feedback
Take advantage of the fact that this is a safe and private conversation. Feel free to ask for some direct, honest feedback.
By the way: Feedback can be given from both sides. You should also seize the opportunity to give some feedback to your manager, in order for both to keep improving.
