How do you feel when approaching a job interview? Fearful? Unprepared? Nervous? You are not alone. Most people go into job interviews unprepared, and do not present themselves in the most positive light. How do I know this? Because I have interviewed hundreds of people to fill positions ranging from senior executives to administrative assistants. But job interviewing is a skill that can be learned and your interview performance can be dramatically improved, leading to a much greater potential of getting a great job offer.
Did you know that there are optimal times of day, and points within the job interview cycle? Scheduling your interview at the best time can triple your chances of getting a job offer.
Another key component is doing your research for the job opening. You need to know everything you can about the key decision makers, the history of the position, the mission of the employer, their successes, and their failures. You need to be inside the head of the hiring manager, understand what is important to him or her, and anticipate what questions they will ask.
And speaking of questions, there are common interview questions that are asked no matter what the positions is, such as “Why did you choose to apply for this position?” or “Why should we choose your over other candidates?” Do you have well prepared and rehearsed responses to these common questions? Have you thought about the questions that will come up that are unique to this position and field? Do you have job experience stories that highlight your strengths, expertise and experience?
If you reply to these questions is “Well, sort of….” then it is time to get serious about preparing for your next job interview.
