When you hear back from a prospective employer and you’ve been offered an interview, it’s normal to start thinking about the questions you will have to answer. The only problem is, you can’t predict the questions that will come your way, and there will always be an element of surprise. Researching the company is something recruitment agencies will always tell you to do, but again the interviewer may not care how much you know about their business, after all, there will be time for you to learn if you do get the job.
So what should you prepare for? The easiest thing to prepare for is how you present yourself and how you allow your personality to shine though. You should show you’re hungry for the role, and not just desperate to get a job. You shouldn’t have to lie to get a job, but you should know how to talk in a way that shows you care about developing in their setup, and helping their company piush forward. When you’re asked a question, think about how you can answer in a way that sells you and your skills. Prepare for this by picking out previous experiences that are relevant to this role. Use them as fuel, to give your answers more substance.
