Job Interview Preparation – Is it important?
Absolutely YES!!! Most jobseekers neglect preparation before interview and fail as a result. Quite often jobseekers who prepare for interviews lack the knowledge or direction on how to prepare properly. Remember the saying “fail to prepare, prepare to fail”. This is very true when we talk about interviews
What is important – Interview Preparation?
Understand the employer – This is the key to interview preparation. You need to know the employer and what they want. Only then can you focus your interview preparation.
Identify how you meet the job requirements – Hey this is what the employer will want to know at interview. You should also prepare examples and achievement to back this up.
Know your CV – The first question I ask individuals is when did you do you Leaving and most fumble to get an answer. This is just to prove a point. If you do not know yourself how do you expect the employer to know you.
Research the company – Expect to be asked the question – “what do you know about us?” Research the company shows you are prepared BUT also interested.
Interview questions – There are a number of questions that you can be certain that you will be asked. Having said this if you get the above points right you will be fine.
