How to prepare for the interview?
Every interview is a valuable learning experience. Even if you don’t get this particular job, in the next interview you’ll be much better prepared and more at ease with the whole process. All of which can go a long way to boosting your confidence and improving your chances of being offered the next job.
Research the company beforehand so that you can demonstrate that knowledge during the interview. This will boost your credibility with the interviewer and will help you to formulate intelligent questions to ask him or her.
Rehearse beforehand. Prior to your interview, prepare answers to common questions the interviewer is likely to ask, such as What are your strengths and weaknesses? Why do you want to work here? Why should we hire you? Tell me about yourself...
Secure your references. Find at least three key people — former supervisors, colleagues, or instructors — who are willing to serve as your professional references. Be sure to secure their permission beforehand, and be certain that they will speak highly of you if contacted by a potential employer.
Think about your strengths, your abilities, and what sets you uniquely apart from other applicants.
Arrive 15 minutes earlier. Announce yourself to the receptionist to let him or her know that you have arrived and that you have an appointment. Turn your cell phone off so it doesn’t ring during your meeting.
Don’t neglect to ask questions. Based on your earlier research, ask how the responsibilities of the open position relate to the company’s goals and plans for the future.
Look your best! Your clothing should be neat and professional looking. Even if everyone’s wearing jeans when you arrive, you’re still probably better off having shown up in a suit.
