Are you starting to feel a little bit nervous about job interviews? If so, we are here to help. Many job seekers make the mistake of waiting until they have an interview scheduled before they start preparing for it. This is not the best idea! Now that you know what job interview questions will be asked, take some time out of your day and go over them. Doing this will put you in a good position and give you peace of mind when job hunting starts getting stressful!
The first thing to consider when preparing for an interview is that a good interviewer is not just asking these questions for the sake of your answer. They are likely listening to your answer, the tone of your voice, your body language, and more. They are probably also looking at other queues… it’s likely that each question has a hidden meaning!
Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
Believe it or not, this question trips a lot of people up. Typically, what the interviewer is looking for is an ability to communicate clearly. A skilled interviewer is also likely looking to connect dots between your personality and the position they are hiring for as well. So take your time to rehearse this one. By being fluid and coherent with your response, you’ll stand out naturally!
Question 2: What do you bring to this position that others won’t?
This will show that you have a clear understanding of the Opportunity. This is prime time to show you did your research and demonstrate your confidence in succeeding.
Preparing for a job interview is one of the best ways to improve your chances of getting hired. Knowing what you want from the position and why you are qualified can make it easier for an interviewer to see that you would be perfect for their company.
And, don’t forget to prepare a few questions you would like for the interviewer to answer. More on that in a future blog!
