Showing up for an interview unprepared is possibly the worst mistake you can make when you want to take your career to the next level. Yes, an interview can be a nerve-wracking experience, but you can ace your next one with ample preparation and self-confidence.
The first step is to research your dream company, what they stand for, their company goals and values, and the qualities that make you their ideal candidate. The upside to extensive research is that it also allows you to make a clear decision. When you want a successful career, you must be happy with your organization and the management team.
Next, prepare your answers well in advance. Interviewers typically ask a set of questions that help them learn about who you are. They already know about your educational background and work experience through your resume.
Top five interview questions.
- Why do you want to work at this company?
- Why should we hire you?
- What are your greatest strengths?
- Where do you see yourself in five years?
- Tell me about your previous job experience
