How to be Prepared
An interview means that the employer liked what they read about you and thinks you might be a good fit for the role. This is the time for you to prove that you are the candidate meant for this role.
- The best thing you can do for the interview is to be prepared. Do your research ahead of time about the company. Who are they? What do they value? How do your values align with the company?
- Ahead of time, try to think of some answers that the interviewer might ask you. What are your strengths? Weaknesses? Why do you want to work here? When it comes to behavioural questions, like : tell me a time you handled a challenging situation? Or, give me an example of a time where you had to work under pressure? It might be helpful for you to write down some key learning experiences from your life and how they can apply to this position, which can be downloaded by clicking on the “Key Learning Experiences” button below.
- Another helpful tip is to think of some questions you can ask the interviewer. Coming up with deep, meaningful questions for the interviewer shows them that you have done your research and are interested in the company/this position. A question you could ask would be: “Are there opportunities for growth within the company?”
- After the interview, be sure to send a brief thank you email to the employer thanking them for their time, that you enjoyed speaking with them, and how you look forward to hearing back from them.
Interviews can be nerve wracking. But if you prepare, practice, and stay calm, you will be ready rock the interview!
