Prepare Like A Boss

Prepare Like A Boss

*Assuming that you have built a dynamic resume that will set you apart from the pack, then your next step is to prepare, prepare, and prepare some more.

*Overcoming anxiety, stress, and debilitating nervousness is the key to being seen as a viable candidate.

*Being as professional and calm while still showing excitement and confidence in your skills is the key to winning that second interview. I would advise to get a good night's sleep and to eat a small but healthy meal beforehand. No wants to hear your stomach growling during the interview.

*Caffeine causes anxiety, skip the coffee, soda too.

Research And Preparation Are Key For Achieving Success

Research And Preparation Are Key For Achieving Success

*You must start by doing your homework. This means researching the company you are interviewing with, either google it, find a company website, note things you want to remember or recall.

*Corporate Culture is important for many reasons. Reference whatever you find out about, for example, a newsletter that describes events for employees, like annual picnic or carnival. This probably means that they value and cater to employees and their families.

*Always find out the name of the person interviewing you. Finding who key players are and referencing them will show that you took initiative.

Make The Interview A Conversation Not An Interrogation

Make The Interview A Conversation Not An Interrogation

*By making a connection with the hiring manager, you will set yourself apart from other applicants.

*Look around the lobby or the office and if you see anything you have in common, bring it up.

*Make sure you know what you are talking about. Bringing up basketball because you see pictures of the hiring manager playing, that doesn't mean to lie and say that you play if you don't. Avoid lying about things you could potentially be embarrassed over in the future.

*Noticing both of you have young children close in age is enough to feel that common ground.

Find The Info That Will Place You Above The Other Applicants

Find The Info That Will Place You Above The Other Applicants

*I must emphasize the importance of doing your homework. This is something that the majority don't even think about doing, so it can be a deciding point.

*Knowing certain facts about the company you are applying for will make you come off as detail oriented and a well prepared applicant. You will probably be one, out of a handful, who actually takes the time to do valuable research.

Prepare For Questions, But Do Not Sound Rehearsed

Prepare For Questions, But Do Not Sound Rehearsed

*When preparing, there are some questions that are a given.

*Can you tell me about yourself? This is one you need to have an answer for quickly.

*Can you describe your biggest weakness? DO NOT say that you have no weaknesses. Instead, take a short time to explain how you are overcoming the weakness, give some examples, then move on.

*Why do you want to work for our company? Emphasize what you can do for the company and what you bring to the table.

The End Of The Interview Is Your Last Chance

*ASK QUESTIONS

*You won't seem to invested in working for this company if you have nothing to ask about.

*Writing your questions down in a small notebook that you take with you can make it easier.

*Taking notes is not a bad idea either, so take a pen as well.

*Don't overwhelm the hiring manager with common sense questions. Really dig deep and get the information that you want for your own peace of mind. You may end up not liking the company culture or vision.

*Asking the hiring manager about salary at this point is a no-no. If you get the next interview, they will bring it up.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
