The major part of the book is devoted to preparing for the interview because preparation is most crucial for getting the green signal. Before the interview, you must spend time finding details about the job, the company, and the industry. Your knowledge of these factors is very important for your success. You must also anticipate questions and prepare responses keeping your personality and background in mind. While the types of questions differ depending on the job profile, you must plan and be prepared for the typical types of questions. There are several questions of similar kind that interviewers will ask you irrespective of the industry or sector you are trying to enter. You would be put through behavioral questions or personality related questions. Your manner of presentation matters lot more than what you say. Even if you don’t have or know answers to some of the questions, admit so; don’t bluff. You should not memorize answers given in the book, but rehearse specific responses. To show your interest in the offered job, you should prepare several questions to ask the interviewer. Just use this book as your guide. You will never go wrong.
Always keep in mind that an interview is not just about answering questions. It is about answering questions well and most importantly showing you in the best possible manner.
The interviewer is looking to assess your strengths, weaknesses, professionalism and suitability. IF you give closed single word replies then you stand no chance of persuading them to take the risk on you.
Of course if you get asked a question and you don’t have an answer this book will take you through; it has many common and hardest interview questions which you are ever likely to face.
By reading through you will find that the way you answer a question is one of the keys to a successful interview.
An interview is about selling yourself. A skilled interviewer will continually ask ‘open’ questions which by their nature are probing but will allow you to sell your skills and abilities.
Imagine an interview where the replies were all one word answers or short sentences. It would not be very comfortable for either party to sit through and your chances of getting the job would be almost zero.
You need to show you have personality, enthusiasm and a great team ethic to succeed at interviews. There are basically 5 key elements that the interviewer is looking for in a candidate. These are…..
1. Can you do the job?
2. Will you do the job?
3. What is the problem I am here to solve?
4. Will you take direction and conform to the team ethic?
5. Will your behaviour represent the department or manager in a professional manner?
All your answers should be modelled with the view that this is what the interviewer is looking to hear.
The toughest questions are the negative ones.
So which types of questions will pose the greatest difficulty? When you enter an interview the interviewer expects you to say how brilliant you are and how perfect for the job you will be. They discount this from the start. They therefore pay much greater attention to those questions which raise negative points. Here are some examples
1. Have you ever disagreed or argued with your current immediate supervisor?
2. Presumably you want this job because you are disillusioned with your current employer?
3. You seem to lack experience in area ‘x’
Pay particular attention to these types of questions. Interviews will usually be won and lost with these types of questions.
I wish you all success at the next interview.
