There is so much information in books and the web about the interview process.  Remember this:  the goal of interview preparation is to focus your efforts and time on preparing 3 things:

 

1.  You - you need to know why they should hire you above and beyond any other candidate.  If you don't know why they should hire you how will they know?

 

2.  Job - Understand the requirements of the job.  The technical skills, experience, programs, etc.  So go through the job posting and job desciption bullet by bullet.  If they were to ask you about any of the duties are you prepared to answer.

 

3.  Company - Get to know the company, what they are about what they do, their mission, their values, their customers.  Be clear on why you want to work there; how you will be a right fit for the cutlure; how you will contribute to the company's goals.  You can go to their website, search online, etc.

 

The goal of the interview is to walk in feeling confident so that you can be your best you.

Great advice!

 

I have to admit I cringe when interview candidates respond to questions with:

 

"No problem."  or

"I don't have a problem with that."

 

I know that many believe both phrases to be professional and positive responses; however, many individuals on the other side of the interview may think otherwise.

 

Do your best to avoid casual talk and calculated and rehearsed responses.  We would love to hear some of the phrases that you believe are overused and should be avoided during the interview.
