Interviews can make us nervous, sometimes very nervous because we place such great importance on this event. We want this job, the stakes are high. We need this job, it is a make it or break it situation. We build the outcome up in our minds right at the time we need to be showing that we are poised and professional.
Poised and professional people are prepared. How prepared are you? What do you know about the company (mission/goals), the position you want to fill, and how that position impacts that company? These are all things that you should be able to find answers to via Internet or networking. Companies feel strongly that you should know and understand who they are and what their place is in the world.
Do you know your worth? Why are you the answer to the company’s needs? Look carefully at your resume, often times that can be the document used to drive the hiring manager’s interview. Know what type of questions might be asked and practice how you will answer them. You can find a large number of websites that will give you lists of interview questions.
