Prepare for the Interview

The second step in landing a great job is a great interview. It’s critical, but thorough preparation will ensure that you present yourself well.

Be Informed

  • Know exactly what it is you are applying for, and what you will be asked to deliver.
  • Thoroughly understand the nature of the company’s operations, the range of products produced, and how you can contribute.
  • Get to know the company’s main competitors and anything else about the industry.

Be Aware of Your Appearance and Posture

  • Do not slouch or sit up straight. Overconfidence or nervousness is easily detected.
  • Dress in business attire that is comfortable and be well groomed.
  • Be polite and do not get distracted by a tough question.

Build Rapport

  • Show enthusiasm by arriving 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled start.
  • Demonstrate interest in the job and remain attentive throughout the interview.
  • Be honest. Misrepresentations can only hurt your chances of getting the job.
  • Show that you understand and care about the company’s needs, not simply your own.

Project a Positive Image

  • Have a positive attitude and demonstrate confidence in your ability to do the job.
  • Never tell people what you cannot do, tell them what you can do.
  • Don’t ask about compensation, perks or benefits. There will be time for this after an offer is made.

Deal with the Tough Questions

  • Answer tough questions briefly and directly.
  • Take time to think before answering. A pause can make your answer seem more profound.
  • Try not to get rattled and remain positive with your replies.

Ask Questions of Your Own

  • Always be prepared to ask the interviewer at least three questions.
  • Think of questions to ask before the interview starts and make one up based on what you have learned during the interview.
  • Make a good impression with questions such as:
    • Why is the job available?
    • What is the company policy on promotion and performance evaluation?
    • What makes your company/product/this position unique?
    • What are the job functions?
