Ace That Job Interview

September 15, 2014

Rocking a job interview is about three things: preparation, preparation and preparation. You are told that you need to know the company you want to work for and impress the interviewer with that information. I have not found that to be the case in my experience. While I do agree that you should know something about the company, what you really need to know is yourself.

What you should know about the company is what are the key issues and challenges the company faces? Once having that information then that’s where knowing about yourself  and what you have to offer becomes important. What problems can you solve?

Create your pitch from these. Develop specific scenarios that explain how you would be a value to the company, more specifically, create value for that company. Work on answers to all the questions you will be asked and you can go online and find all the questions that employers ask.

Dont be afraid to be social in a job interview. You want to make it as pleasant for the interviewer as possible.

Be succint. And in the meantime, do your best to excel in the soft skills of collaboration, adaptability, entrepreneurship, creativity and professional accountability which are important skills in any sector of the emerging economy.
