INTERVIEW PREPARATION


An interviewee should prepare for all aspects how he presents academic and non academic aspects.

1.    Recognize your power
                  Self assessment is important. It can evaluate someone skills, accomplishments, and capabilities. It is basic information to communicate to the potential employer. This assessment will be important in making a resume and preparing interview.
2.    Create communication that employer-centered rather than self-centered.
                  Talking your special needs salary and jobs satisfaction is self centered topic. Keep focusing on what you can do rather than what the employers can do for you. Make sure to answer the employer question with an employer centered point of view. It doesn’t mean that you have no idea. An employer needs a person who can work best for him.
3.    hold your undertakings with specific examples illustrating what you did.
                  It is important to tell the interviewer something about business or situation where you dial up with or business activities you are successful. Don’t tell a lie because the interviewer can identify if you tell a lie. If you do this, there will be no more interviews
4.    Gather information about the organization.
                     Knowing the company you are applying to is much needed. Find out as much as possible information about what they do, their reputation, and philosophy. This information will help you to answer questions and give better responses. You can search on the internet about the company you are going to apply.
5.    Talk in the employer’s language.
                     The employer is happy in having the work done in timely manner, at a quality level. The interviewer is not interested in your career and personal goals in other places. He will be fun to have his work done and you can achieve high career in his company. It means that he needs your best performance in his company.
6.    Anticipate and prepare for questions.
                     You can imagine what questions may be asked in the interview. You can draw from general questions to the specific ones. For all general questions an interviewee must be well organized in answering them. For the specific ones an interviewee must look for references what related-questions to the job offered may be asked. Searching information of interview samples from books or internet is more likely to be done before encountering an interview session.  Would you please answer in an honest, but in a positive manner. Collect as much as information, and strategies, for responding questions.
7.    Practice answering the questions.
                     It is a good method to practice the form of your answers. You can practice either alone or with your friend. You can listen to your voice. It is good to listen or it shows lack of confidence. Practice from the early interview session. You can start from greeting to interviewer to answering specific questions. If you have felt relaxed it indicates that you are at least ready for the interview.
8.    communicate verbally and nonverbally.
                     First, speak in complete sentence. Good verbal communication indicates that you are well educated. It is very valued by many employers. Would please say “ going to” instead of “ gona to”. Say “yes” instead of “ yea”. Pay attention to your grammar.
                     Second, shake hands firmly, use eye contact but not stare, listen positively, sit politely in a professional manner not crossing your legs, enter, and leave the room are nonverbal communications that talk about your personality rather than your words. Practice communicates verbally and nonverbally.
9.    Dress for your career.
                     Your appearance gives an impression. You may only meet the chance once so please dress properly because dressing is a part of nonverbal communication. The employer will judge what kind of person you are from your appearance.
