BusinessInsider.com has released an article that lists several interview questions for which job seekers should prepare. Roxana Mayer, who is the Program Manager at JobNet and has years of experience in this field, understands that this preparation is key in creating a great impression during an interview. Roxana Mayer assists job candidates in interview preparation, coaching them according to a list of tips that she has compiled over the course of her career. She has released some of these tips to the public.
The aforementioned article encourages job seekers to think about more than just their skills: "Employers aren't inviting you into their offices to simply sit down and assess your technical skills, but also your personality and the degree of your passion for the job position, company and industry you're interviewing for." For this reason, Roxana Mayer and other interviewing experts recommend looking at the big picture, not just the details.
"When preparing for a job interview," commented Roxana Mayer, "it's crucial to know yourself: your resume (backwards and forwards), your skills and accomplishments (with examples), your skeletons, and of course, what you bring to the company."
Preparing for an interview is important, but job seekers often have a hard time determining what kinds of questions to expect. The bottom line, according to Roxana Mayer, is to understand one's skills and how they will benefit the organization.
"While it is impossible to prepare for every unique question an employer might conjure up, questions like these are a good exercise of introspection," stated Roxana Mayer. "If you can clarify and put words to your values, your outlook, and who you are, these will emerge subtly when answering more basic questions, like why you want to work for the organization."
This means that job seekers should research the company with which they are interviewing. Roxana Mayer knows that pinpointing the exact questions interviewers will ask is impossible; however, having an understanding of the organization's goals, and how one's skills can help achieve them, is of paramount importance.
Preparation may also play a role in calming nerves. Roxana Mayer understands that many job seekers have been searching for employment for months. The ability to interview for a position may be accompanied by a great deal of pressure to land the job. By thoroughly preparing for the interview, job seekers can improve their ability to relax and naturally interact with the interviewer.
