An interview is a unique situation designed to assess whether you can do the job at hand, whether you will spring into action once on the job, and whether you fit with the company’s culture and leadership team. It’s in your best interest to stick to the basics, no matter how experienced you are. Remember the best prepared candidate gets the job, your strategy is to get to the next step in the process.
Take the time to read and study this material and develop an interview strategy. You should anticipate what questions you will be asked and craft quality answers. Remember, it is not always the most qualified person who gets the job – it is often the one who is best prepared.
Remember how this opportunity meets all of your goals and desires, make sure that this opportunity meets what you want. Most of the time it isn’t only about money, but also about work/life balance, challenge, or the opportunity to advance. Think about why you want to leave your current job… maybe it is for a better opportunity or something that you don’t like about your current job. Everything you say should be a reason why you should get hired and should address the hot buttons of the job requirements.
