The Interview…

interview 01

The interview is where you sell your services in person; you are in control. Being prepared for the interview shows that you are the qualified person to fill the job.

Be prepared to answer some questions such as:

  • Tell me about yourself
  • Tell me about your background and accomplishments
  • What are you strengths?
  • In what areas do you need to improve?
  • How would you describe your most recent job performance?
  • What have you learned from other jobs you have performed?
Be prepared to ask questions such as:

  • What do you expected to accomplish in this position and by when?
  • How do you think I would fit into the position and the company?
  • What are some of the procedures, machinery or other aspects of the position?
  • What do you consider ideal experience for this job?
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO…

  • Research the company you are interviewing for, check for a website
  • Plan ahead, map out your route and arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment

  • Practice good poise; keep hands and feet still, don't slouch or slump in the chair

  • When you are asked a question, respond accordingly, being brief, positive and articulate

  • Look at the interviewer while you speak, maintain comfortable eye contact
  • Answer questions with a short explanation, instead of "yes" or "no"
  • When asked about strengths, try to relate them to the position you are being interviewed for and supply examples whenever possible
  • Spend time on your grooming, dress appropriately for the industry/position
  • Always be yourself
  • Turn off your cell phone
