It is important to prepare and present yourself well during your interview.
Before the Interview
Research the company’s website and other information you have to understand the company’s background and products.
2. Understand your skills, experience, and strengths
Understand why you are a good match for the position and the company so you can make this clear during the interview.
3. Develop a list of questions
Think of questions related to the company and the position you are applying for. Ask questions that show you have done research on the position, the company, and its culture.
1. Punctuality and Professionalism
Allow plenty of time to arrive at the meeting location. Dress professionally and make sure cell phones are turned off.
2. Body Language
The image you project to the interviewer is very important. Smile, speak and answer questions clearly, and maintain eye contact to show interest.
Let the interviewer clearly see your interest in the company and the position.
Relax and be confident when speaking about your experience and accomplishments, and try to relate your skills to the position.
5. Ask Questions
Good questions require research and show the interviewer that you are interested in the company and the position, e.g.
- What is the company’s corporate culture like?
- What are the company’s strong points when compared with the competitors?
- What is the company’s long term growth strategy for this market?
- What is the company’s product pipeline like?
6. Common questions you may be asked
- Why are you interested in the company? Talk about the company’s positive points discovered in your pre-interview research.
- Why do you want to change your job? Talk about wanting a greater challenge or more responsibility. Never say anything negative about your current or former employers.
- Why are you interested in this position? Talk about your specific skills and experience and relate them to the requirements of the position you are interviewing for.
- What are your long term goals? Focus on how working at the company will help you broaden your skills and responsibilities.
Salary negotiation is about timing. The correct time to talk about salary is at the offer stage of the process. Talking about salary early in the process will make you look as though you are only interested in money and not the job. If asked about salary, explain that you are more interested in the position rather than compensation.
8. Closing the Interview
At the end of the interview thank the interviewer for their time and express interest in the company and position.
Sending a follow-up email within 48 hours of your interview to show your enthusiasm and professionalism can increase your chances of getting the position.
