Pre-interview nerves are perfectly normal but with some preparation you can minimise those nerves.The need to show your genuine interest to work is important. You will increase the chance of getting hired if you can show a genuine interest to work for the organization. Just remember the wise saying from Louis Pasteur ‘Chance favours the prepared mind’.
Whilst you do not need to spend a great deal of time knowing all the ins and outs of a company, it is important to have a good basic knowledge of what it does, it’s specific marketplace and it’s history. It is unlikely you will be asked many questions about the company’s history but you will get a feel for the philosophy of the organisation over the years and can tailor your answers to match with that philosophy.
The questions being asked during the interview will reveal a lot of information regarding the type of person they are hoping to hire and the kind of impact they are hoping to get form the new addition to the organization. If your interviewers seemed to value team player opposed to personal accomplishment, then do not brag about your own selfish ability and how you excel in individual ventures.
It is important to know about the products and services of the company, particularly if you are interested in a sales position. Your interviewer will be impressed you have taken the time to research the information and it will add marks on your assessment.
As you do some research about the company you can also compile a questions list of your own which you can ask during the interview. By asking questions about the job you have applied for or about the company, you are showing a positive initiative.You may find that all of your questions have been answered during the interview process, don’t worry and don’t feel that you still need to ask the questions and get the interviewers to repeat themselves. Just let them know that you had some questions but they have all been answered whilst you have been talking.
Finally, think about the questions the interviewer may ask you. They will want to know what experience you have and how you would handle certain situations. They may ask you to refer to previous situations you have been in and want you to draw on information from real life scenarios. It is good to have an idea of what scenarios you can refer to before the interview despite not knowing exactly what information the interviewer may wish to gather from your answer. Example scenarios would be positions of responsibility, meeting deadlines, managing a project, etc. Answering in a confident, knowledgeable will give the interviewer confidence in you. Try not to be evasive or miss out key areas of information as this will hinder the interviewer when deciding if you are right for the job.
