Before Interview |
Before the interview

Research the Company Make sure you research the company before you go for your interview. Go to the company web page and read press releases. Conduct a web search and find out any recent news from the company. Displaying knowledge of the company is a way to let the interviewer know that you are serious about the position.

Prepare for common interview questions There are some common interview questions that you will likely be asked, and you should take some time and think about how you will answer them.

Why don't you tell me about yourself?
This opened-ended question is a typical way for an interviewer to begin. It starts conversation and allows them to get a sense of who you are and your priorities. What is important for you to remember is to keep your answer to this fairly short, and stick with details about your professional career.
Why do you want to work here?
This is your chance to demonstrate that you did some research about the company and talk about what you found out that makes you want to work here. Hiring Managers want to hear about how you're excited about the opportunity with their company, not that you are just looking for a job anywhere.
What is your biggest strength/weakness?
For both of these questions make sure that you keep your answer work related. When asked your greatest strength this is your opportunity to explain what makes you special and why you'd be a great person to hire. When asked your greatest weakness one of the worst answers that you can give is "I don't have one" or "I can't think of any". For this question you should point out some minor work related weakness and anything that you've done to help correct it.
Why should I hire you?
This is another chance for you to explain to the hiring manager how your background matches the description of their ideal candidate. Go through your experience and talk about how it relates to the position.
Prepare some questions about the company
Most interviews will end with the hiring manager giving you an opportunity to ask any questions that you have about the position or the company. Take some time before the interview to think of a few questions that you'll ask at this time. If you don't ask any questions the hiring manager may take that as a sign that you aren't as interested in the position or that you don't know much about the position/company.
