Interviewing Techniques


Preparation

Before you walk into any interview, you should know as much about the company and the position as you possibly can. Search the web or go to the library.

In today’s world of mass communication, there’s no excuse for lack of research. After you have studied the company, write out a list of questions to ask the employer.

Why is this position available?
Will there be opportunities for further training?
What are your goals for this position?
What obstacles will I need to overcome to succeed?
How will my performance be evaluated?
Are there opportunities for promotion?
What growth do you anticipate for your firm?

No one can predict the exact questions that an interviewer will ask, but you can rehearse your resume and get a good idea of a few important questions that the employer is likely to ask. To prepare, think about how you would answer the following questions:

Tell me about yourself, your career, education and other strengths.
What do you know about our organization?
Why are you interested in this position?
What are your most significant career achievements?
Describe a situation in which your work was criticized?
How would you describe your personality?
How do you perform under pressure?
How have you improved yourself over the past year?
What is your ideal working environment?
How would your co-workers describe you?
What do you think of your boss?
Are you creative?
What are your goals in your career?
Where do you see yourself in two years?
Why should we hire you?
What kind of salary are you looking for?
What other types of jobs are you considering?
