How to Interview
Congratulations on your interview! It is also important for you to understand the culture of the organization so you know whether you will be happy there. You are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you.
Interviewing is the first step in the job process to showcase to your potential employer your professional skills and individuality. To prep for the interview, it is important to do your research on the companies history and culture. You can do this by reviewing the potential employer’s website and social media pages. Try reviewing their employee reviews on www.Glassdoor.com or indeed.com also to read employee reviews of that company. There, you will be able to gather enough information about the company and its culture to see if you would fit into its culture. It is also important to rehearse interview answers to common questions in an interview. A helpful hint is to review the job description and cater to your answers to what the job description is looking for. At the end of the interview, always have at least three or four interview questions for the potential employer. Through your own questions, you will be able to dictate if the company is the right fit for you.
On the day of the interview, if you are not sure what to wear, you can always play it safe by wearing a nice shirt and black pants. Attend the interview with a copy of the job description, your resume, and cover letter you used for that application. It is important to remember that an interviewer is also a person, so be friendly and cordial with the interviewer. Though you have rehearsed your answers, do not sound like a robot. The feeling of nervousness will be there, but try and take a couple of deep breaths before walking into the interview.
Remember to highlight your skills, professionalism, and why you would fit into their company and culture.
