The greatest advice for interview preparation is to practice, practice, practice! Ultimately, the purpose of the interview is for the employer to find the best fit for the position. As a candidate, there are several things you can do to prepare for a job interview.
- The ticket to an interview is your resume. Be sure your resume is polished, up to date, and error free.
- Research the company! Learn as much as you can about the company by visiting their website, social media, and reading press releases. Take special note of the company's vision and mission statement to see how they align with your own values.
- Review common interview etiquette and practice a firm handshake.
- Practice the most commonly asked questions. Although there are common interview questions, your answers should be unique to your strengths, characteristics, and experiences.
