Jun 29,2013 0 Comments
The job interview is a crucial part of your job search because it’s an opportunity for the employer to figure out if you’re right for the job. This page will provide you with information to prepare for your job interview so that you can make a positive and lasting impression.
Before the interview
Be sure to do some background research to become familiar with the organization. This might include researching any current events that might relate to the organization or industry, the organization’s goals and objectives, and the history of the company. Here are some questions to help you with your research:
- What does the organization do?
- What’s involved in the position you’re applying for?
- What qualifications do you need for the position?
- What kind of skills is the employer looking for?
- Who are the customers or clients?
- What kind of reputation does the employer have?
You’ll be more comfortable in the interview if you know a bit about the company and the position you’re applying for.
Print off an extra copy of your résumé so the employer can refer to it during the interview.
