Tips for grads, part 3: Interviewing

InterviewIn this three-part series, I’ve tuned you in to some resume and cover letter secrets, and provided you with job-hunting tips. This series-ending post will help you stand out with interview advice.

Here are a few “need to know” tips for your next interview:

First, you have to prepare for the interview. Research the company to get familiar with its mission and goals for the future. This will give your answers meaning to the interviewer and make you stand out from the others. Doing that research can help you  prepare you for the question many employers ask: “Why should we hire you?” If you know the company’s mission and future goals, you can paint a picture of how you can contribute to those and why you are a great fit for the position.

Now that we have that important question down, there are so many others that could be asked. Before the interview, it is best to think about the different types of questions you may be asked and prepare your answers. To help you, here are the top 31 most-asked interview questions and how to answer them.

The tricky part of the interview is usually after the standard interview questions; the behavioral questions are next. They are usually the hardest to answer; and they’re the most important. The interviewer will pay very close attention to your answers to make sure that you possess the right skills for the job.

After the interview is over, take some time to reflect on your answers. You will learn what you think you did well and what needs to be improved for next time.

Now that you are well prepared for your next interview, tell us about your interviewing experiences and your best practices in the comments! As always, be sure to check out our open career opportunities to put your skills to the test. Good luck!
