Tips to succeed in an Interview
Practicing what youre going to say and how youre going to say it will help you speak confidently about your skills and accomplishments. Its a good idea not to memorize what you want to say. Instead, figure out which key points you want to focus on.Review the questions youve come up with and the situations youve described in the previous section. Decide which situations would make good responses to the questions. Practice answering the questions using STARS descriptions of your accomplishments.
The interview is also your opportunity to ask questions. List 3 things you want to know about the job or the organization, and practice asking questions about them. Make sure you couldnt be expected to know the answers from your research. Leave questions about salary, vacations or other benefits until after you receive a job offer.Record your answers so you can see and hear how you perform. Its also a good idea to roleplay the interview with a friend.
