Career in Interview Techniques
So you have managed to get to the interview stage. This means that your covering letter & Curriculum Vitae have stood up to the scrutiny of the Human Resources Department & the Specialist Department to which you are applying.
So what preparation is required?
- Know where the interview is & decide on the mode of transport.
- Go well in advance – nothing worse than being late.
- Take deodorant with you and put it on just before the interview – you are likely to have picked up all kinds of smells even before you have reached your destination.
- Be formally dressed, not casual ( unless you are going to a hip IT company ).
- Check the company’s website – be prepared to talk about latest developments. This is critical to your success.
- Take a copy of your Covering Letter & Curriculum Vitae.
- Try to speak to existing & former employees of the company for further information about the culture of the company.
At the Interview :
- There is no need to be nervous, the interviewer is also just a human being with all the same problems as the rest of us.
- Greet the interviewer with a smile and a firm handshake. Your hands should be dry.
Key Interview Questions :
- Tell me a little bit about yourself – be relevant to the position applied for.
- What are your strengths and weaknesses – be specific. Make one of your strengths sound like a weakness.
The interviewer is looking for problem solvers, somebody who will take away their headaches. So your replies should be very precise showing proof of your hard work etc.
Do not make general comments like “I am very honest”. You must say what it is that you have done that has made other people realize how honest you are.
