interview tips guys :)

What is an interview?
It is a dialogue allowing you to expand on the information described in your cover letter and résumé, and an opportunity for the interviewer to provide more details about the job, to determine how you fit the job requirements. It is a two-way street: you each are assessing the match between you, your skills and experience and the position, co-workers, and organizational environment. The interviewer will ask you questions designed to gain information about your personality, background, and qualifications. You will ask questions concerning the job and the organization. During the conversation you have the opportunity to present yourself in a positive and confident manner.

Before the interview
Research. Get a complete job description. Get all the interviewers’ correct names and titles. Ask the organization’s receptionist to send you any brochures, catalogs, annual reports, so that you know about the organization’s mission, history, staff size, and current projects. This information will help you gear your comments to the needs and interests of the interviewer.

Prepare. Take a personal inventory: analyze how your strengths, skills, experience, and interests can be applied to the position. Consider what the organizations’ priorities are for this position, so that you “lead” with these attributes.

Review potential questions. Write out answers to commonly asked questions and practice out loud to make sure you are articulating clearly and concisely your qualifications for the position, and check for excessive “like uhm, ah, yeah, you knows.” Create a list of questions you would like to ask.

Practice. Mock interviewing — do it with a professional acquaintance in your field, someone who you’ll be a little nervous with, so that it will approximate the real thing. Remember first impressions are often lasting so clearly articulate your strong points early in the interview.

Find out time and place. Be sure you have the correct address and directions to the interview. Make sure you arrive with time to relax and collect your thoughts before the interview.

Check appearance. Your attire should be neat and professional. Even if it is a “casual” office, for the interview you should dress as a professional, appropriately for your intended field.
