Interviewing – Anticipate & Review

No one likes to be blindsided by an interview question, especially a question that could have been anticipated.

To help you prepare for the questions that may be asked of you, review the job posting to find key skills and experiences sought by the company.  If a job posting indicates the need to perform under pressure situations, you can anticipate a question pertaining to that ability.  Additionally, ask contacts at the company what are the top 3 skills in order to be successful in this role – this information will help you identify areas of focus for your preparation.

Finally, after each interview, take time to compile information on what questions were asked during the interview, your responses, which answers elicited a good response, etc.  By reviewing and tracking your interviewing efforts, you will become a stronger and more effective interviewer.
