Preparation for an Interview

Do you have some interview skills and techniques?

I am not going into an interview. I hope not in years. I just want to share my experience with you. A lot of people lost their jobs and so there are a lot of competitions in the market. It is hard to land a job these days.

Whilst I was looking for a new job 3 years ago, I was also researching about how to prepare for an interview. An interview is very crucial. That is how the potential employer knows how sincere you are for the job. So, I read for tips, possible questions and better answers for the questions. I made notes and studied.

On the day of the interview, I was nervous but confident. I let them know that I was really interested. I was all smile and very positive. When she asked me questions, I was speaking naturally and from the heart. I also made sure I spoke to her with eye-to-eye contact. She then offered me the job and explained to me the benefits of being their employee. It was one of the best moments for me. I was so thrilled.

I do not interview candidates nor do I have a great interviewing guide but I just want to share the things I experienced. What is your field? Research, find it, study, prepare and you'll succeed.

As someone who regularly interviews people I have a huge pet peeve that will knock a candidate down from a 10 to a 7. Do not ask the person who is potentially going to be your direct supervisor about company benefits. Ask them about the JOB you have applied for. Allow them to offer the details of company benefits, or allow the person who offers you the job that opportunity.
