At Robinson Executive we understand the importance of preparation for a successful interview. Candidates often face difficulties during the interview, hampering their chances of getting selected even though their profile is a perfect match for the role.
Our comprehensive interview tips provide you the background you need on how to make a lasting impression on potential employers.
Here are some of our interview tips:
- One of the most important things to remember is to research the organisation well before the interview. Take the time to understand the company by studying its official website, media releases and newsletters to have valuable information on its important services and products, culture, recent events, target markets, structure and its future direction.
- Examine the information on the job you are applying for carefully along with the position description and job advertisement. This information will provide you an idea about the questions you may be asked so you can have relevant responses for them. Use this information to ask intelligent questions to the employer. This will set you apart from the other candidates.
- Make a list of all the questions you are likely to be asked in the interview and prepare for them in advance so you would not be caught off-guard. For every potential question, you should have practical responses which can provide a positive outcome. This will allow you to answer the questions in a succinct and coherent way.
- Being successful in an interview means being able to present yourself in a positive light. This can be done only if you know your strengths well and if you can communicate them to the interviewer convincingly and confidently. You will also need to present concrete examples of why you are perfect for the role. Demonstrate how you can fulfill the needs of the organisation.
