It's really the interview that clinches the offer.
Prepare Your Stories
- Most likely, you’ll experience a behavioral-type interview where most questions are not questions at all—they’re a request for stories about your accomplishments, experiences, and of how you’ve handled setbacks or failure.
- Many of your stories are way in the back of your memory, so preparing and practicing your stories before the interview is the key to success . Choose stories and examples you’re most proud of.
- Recruiters tell us they want to hear specific detail. Use the STAR method (situation, task, action, result) to cover everything they want to know.
Do Your Research
- Know about the company’s products or services, what their goals are, where they’re located, and about their competition.
- Read the job description for information about the work you’ll be doing.
- Look beyond their website for information, articles, and industry news.
It’s Go Time
An interview is a conversation—not a test. Your positive attitude, energy, and enthusiasm are the most important factors. They want to see that you’re excited about their company and the opportunity.
