Creating Your Interview Mindset - Part 1

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

Confidence, poise, knowledge, skill. That's you!

The company has called you in for your first interview. (Yes, there is often more than one!)

Are you ready? Let's see...
  1. Do you know the jargon, buzz words and lingo of the industry?
  2. Can you provide at least three reasons you want to work for this particular company/business/organization?
  3. Do you know most of the common interview mistakes?
  4. Can you share a few outstanding job-related successes you've had and your role?
  5. Will you be able to give a few good reasons why the company should hire you?
  6. Do you have a promotional presentation ready in case you're asked "Tell me about yourself"?
  7. Do you understand the job description for which you are applying and can you give examples of when you have used the skills needed?
  8. Can you answer job related technical questions?
  9. Can you pass employment tests?
  10. Have you anticipated possible interview questions and how to answer them?
These are just the beginning. I'll continue the list in Part 2.

In the mean time, I wish you all the success on your upcoming interview.
