Ready for the round of Interviews?

Prepare, prepare and prepare. The more prepared you are for the interview the more likely it is that you’ll be able to answer the questions with a high level of authority.

The better you can answer questions the more likely it is that your confidence will grow during the course of the interview.

Avoid trying to give the perfect answer. If you think about it, the perfect answer is a virtual impossibility because what you may think is perfect, the interviewer may not. So why not settle for a good answer that covers the important points?

Never belittle yourself. Too many people add to their nervousness levels by not believing that they’re good enough or that they’re as good as their competition.

Rather than focusing on their strengths they focus on their weaknesses. It stands to reason that the less you believe in yourself the less confident you’ll be.

Don’t think about the competition, after all there’s nothing you can do about it. Just focus on giving the best interview you can.

Quantify your experience and accomplishments. Avoid timid or uncertain language; Use examples as much as possible.

Don’t just talk about your skills and experience; try also to show how they can benefit your new employer. Keep your answer to one or two minutes; don’t ramble. Use your resume summary as a base to start.

Never let an opportunity to pass, when the interviewer says “Any questions?” Prepare five or six questions before the interview and take them with you. When the time comes for you to ask questions, take out your list. This will show good preparation on your part.

This time is a valuable opportunity for you to get the information you need to help you make an informed decision.
