Job Interview Process

Eric Schneckloth

Before the Interview

Sleep

You should be well rested before the interview.


Social Media

Clean your accounts a little, especially if there's anything demoralizing.


Study

Study commonly asked interview questions, and practice your answers.


Unknown Details

If there is anything about the company that you don't know, try to find out before the interview.


Detour

Drive to the place you'll be interviewed at, and find out the best path. This can help you show up on time, and even earlier than needed.

Job Interview Tips - How to Prepare For a Job Interview

During the Interview

Attire

Dress appropriately for the interview. Whatever an average employee there would be wearing; try to wear something one step further.


Visualize

Imagine the interview is a conversation. Conversations are much less stressful than interviews.


Mistakes

If you make a mistake in the interview, don't worry. Mistakes happen, and the interviewer wasn't expecting you to be perfect.


Arrival

It'd be appropriate to show up earlier than planned, not too early, though.


Greeting

Greet the interviewer with a firm handshake, making eye contact.

Common Questions

Could you tell me about yourself?

Don't talk about your personal life; highlight your strengths.


Why should we hire you?

Be specific. Tell them a few strengths that they'd be looking for.


What is your greatest strength?

Be specific. Have examples. Use one that they'll be looking for.


What is your greatest weakness?

Be honest. Make your weakness less of an importance to the business.


Why do you want to work here?

Be specific. Use your strengths to show you're a perfect fill for the part.
