THINGS TO DO BEFORE THE INTERVIEW

Once you have a scheduled interview appointment, prepare yourself to

make a good impression:

   
1. Know yourself, what you want, and what you can offer. Review your resume. Prepare a short list that highlights your strengths. Know your special skills and knowledge, personality traits, valued working conditions, and compensation desired. In addition to job qualifications, a postive attitude, pleasant personality, initiative, flexibility, leadership, creativity, confidence, maturity, and ability to work well with others and solve problems can also be very important. Be ready to describe in detail your interests, work values, accomplishments, and qualifications that will make the interviewer want to hire you. Rehearse answers to expected interview questions so that you will be concise and clearly understood. Be prepared to discuss your qualifications in detail. Here is a sampling of questions likely to be asked. 
     
  a.   Tell us about yourself. Why are you interested in this job? Why are you interested in working for this company? 
     
  b.  Describe your outstanding accomplishments in past jobs.
     
  c. What are your chief strengths for this job? What makes you the best applicant? (Be prepared to support your answers with actual examples.)
     
  d. What are your major weaknesses? (Describe a problem and how it was solved.)
     
  e. In past positions, how did you get along with your coworkers? Describe how you have worked with others to accomplish a task. Describe a time when you tried to persuade others to do something.
     
  f. What would you do if ...(situation)?
     
  g. What type of work do you like to do best? Least? (Be prepared to give a record of your past employment including dates, wages, reasons for leaving, and value of your experience.) Describe an ideal work environment.
     
  h. What would your last employer say about your attendance and ability to arrive at work on time? What did you think of your last employer?
   
i. Give an example of your ability to work effectively under pressure.
     
  j. Describe a difficult problem you tried to solve.
     
  k. Describe a situation in which you had to make an unpopular choice.
     
l. Describe a situation in which you decided alone that something should be done.
     
m. Who is your hero?
     
  n. If you are currently employed, why do you want to change jobs? What are you looking for in your next job? (Be ready to discuss what you can offer.)
     
  o. What are your career goals?
     
  p. What type of salary are you seeking? 
     
q. Why should we hire you?
     
  r. Do you have any questions?
   
2.  Research the job. Review the job description if it is available. Know the required tasks, training, and qualities necessary for success on the job. Know how your training and experience make you qualified for the job. Be certain that you like and can do the work required. If you need more information about the job that interests you, you may want to contact people working in the job for an information interview. You may also want to "career shadow" someone employed in the field, read the Career Kokua description, talk to teachers, family, and friends, or do other career exploration activities to learn the job details for your interview. Keep a record of the information you find to review as you prepare for your interview.
   
3.   Research the company or organization. Knowing the company's business and industry reflects your interest in the job and provides a better understanding of the position. Find out what products or services the firm provides and the types of jobs they have. Be familiar with the company's history and future plans, the number of employees, names of top executives, number of locations, and competitors in the industry. Know the current trends that may affect its business operation. Newspapers, directories, annual reports, trade magazines, Internet Web sites, job fairs, and company ads are possible sources of information. If you know someone who works for the company, arrange for an information-gathering talk with that person. Questions you might want to ask are listed in the career shadowing application packet of the Career Kokua Community Resources book. You may want to research employee benefits, opportunities for promotion, other job openings, job security, work environment, etc.  
   
 4. Write down some questions that you might want to ask the employer at the interview such as priority tasks of the position, why the position is vacant, initial expectations, training and advancement opportunities, the work schedule, and when a hiring decision will be made.
   
 5. Practice interviewing skills. Consider a dress rehearsal or arranging a videotape of yourself with a knowledgeable person who can provide you with feedback.
   
 6. You may also want to get ready for possible tests. Practice taking tests, brush up on job skills, and do exercises in areas required for the job.
   
 7. A portfolio of your best projects may be helpful if you are seeking a career in such fields as writing, the visual arts, and computer science.
   
 8. Visit the site to see what successful people in your career area are wearing and dress accordingly. Salespersons in clothing stores can also give suggestions.
   
 9. The information you have for an interview should include your resume and the names, job titles, current business addresses, and current phone numbers of your references.
   
The interview is your chance to let the interviewer know your worth as a

potential employee. Be aware that it is not solely your qualifications that

get you hired. The key is to convince the interviewer that you have

certain strengths that the job requires and that you are the best person

for the job. The interview is also a chance to find out if you would like to

work for that organization.
