Want to know the questions that will be asked and how you should answer them? Sorry to disappoint, but you will never know for sure. You will see articles here suggesting typical job interview questions that are asked and suggestions about how you should answer them. It will be very worthwhile for you to read over all of them – not to specifically know what you are likely to be asked – but by reading over all of them you will surely get a good general feel for how you should prepare.
That’s the second of your job interview tips. Don’t just read the articles pertaining to what you should do. Also read the articles pertaining to what the interviewer should do. That way, if you know what they are going to do, you can better prepare for what you are going to do in the interview!
Job Interview Tips
Before you dive into the material here, keep these 2 points in mind:
1. A job interview is not a one-way street. From the moment you walk in the door you need to start taking note of how you feel. Does the environment feel good? Were you greeted well? Do the employees seem content? How many people smiled at you? Is your interviewer pleasant to be around? You need to be evaluating the company just as much as the company is evaluating you.
2. At the end of the interview (if you have a good impression from your initial evaluation of the company) you have to let them know that you would really like to work there. Many, many times a person has landed a job because they expressed a sincere interest in wanting the job when all other things being equal, other prospects did not. It’s not that an interviewer is particularly looking for it, but when it happens it makes a very good impression.
Consider this one of the most important job interview tips.
