5 Steps to Help You Prepare for Your Interview

Prepare for Your Interview

  1. Research the company as well as the role you are interviewing for. Start with the company’s website. Here you will learn more detail of the industry you are considering, the infrastructure of the company you are considering and, most importantly, the career for which you are interviewing.  In addition, understanding of the company’s mission and values is key.  Read through job postings, this will help you to understand the specific qualities they are looking for in each position.
  2. Have an outfit picked out and dress to impress. Business professional dress should be standard attire for your interviews, it is always better to be over dressed than under dressed. Make sure that you have your outfit picked out ahead of time and have taken any pieces to the dry cleaners if needed. Remember – if you look good, you’ll feel good!
  3. Have questions prepared for the interview panel. Never show up to an interview empty handed. Base your questions on the specific role you are interviewing for, or the company itself. Don’t over complicate it, they can be as detailed as you’d like, or keep them general. Having questions ready for your interview panel shows not only that you have prepared for the interview, but that you truly have an interest, and also allows you to highlight key skills and past experience that aligns with the position for which you are interviewing.
  4. Practice speaking about yourself and your career success. This is your chance to brag on yourself and your professional wins. This can be uncomfortable for most people, so practicing ahead of time will make you more confident in the things you are saying and help you to be prepared for the “tell us about yourself” questions. Give specific examples of challenges you have faced and overcome and successes you’ve experienced in your work history. How did you become the professional you are today?
  5. Prepare your close. Closing yourself in an interview can be asking for any concerns about your background so you may address them then and there, which can be a strong way to ask for the job. We all have things we can work on but being able to sell past that is what matters. It is also the last chance for you to align your skillset to that of the position you are applying for; this shows the interview panel that you are the best fit for the job.  Most importantly, tell your interview panel why you are the #1 candidate for the opportunity, make it easy for them to make the hiring decision in your favor!
