What are the right ways to prepare for an interview?

Why prepare for an interview?

There are three main reasons.

Let’s discuss!

One: Although you can’t guess every question you might be asked if you prepared you can tailor your answer to fit.

Two: If you are well prepared, you will have more confidence and this will affect the way you come across.

Three: Attitude matters. Perspective employers will choose a not-quite-perfect but willing candidate over a brilliant one.

What to prepare?

Find out about the organization

  • Research about the organization
  • Visit the website and read all the important material that is available on the website.

Find out about the job

  • Ask for the job description or specification. This will tell you about your responsibilities in an organization
  • Talk to anyone you know who works there already

Find out what the employer is looking for

  • Make a list specified in the job advertisement
  • Prepare accordingly

You can answer most of the question that will come up, such as, tell me about how you work in a team? Add in a few lessons you have learned- what you did and how you might be done it better. Outline any voluntary work you have done for a charity, or any experience or paid work in any sector.

Preparing for other kinds of questions

  • The interviewer is also looking for someone who is likely to stay for a longer period of time and progress in the organization.
  • Prepare to answer questions about your ambitions for the future.
  • You may also be asked for gaps in your career history. If you have any, Be positive and tell the truth instead of hiding a truth.

Prepare your own questions

  • Do ask technical questions and how things are done
  • Do ask about the possibility for training
  • Don’t ask about salary until you have been offered the job

When you have prepared as much as this, you have a very good chance of success.

Good luck!
