How to succeed in your job interview – Part 2

In the article earlier we have discussed how to prepare your interview. Part 2 highlights job interview questions that you can get and also what questions you have to ask at the end of the interview. Answering Questions During the interview, questions from interviewer are more or less similar for every job you. Consequently, the best way is just to prepare them before the interview! For sure, they can ask new questions or ones related more to the job description. If you have already success for basics questions it is already a good point. Why did you apply for this job? You can speak about the company but mainly about actual job for which you have made an application. You can say that the job is connected to your studies and what you want to do as job. Show your motivations, show that you really like this kind of jobs for several reasons and you heard only positive feedback about the company. What are your strengths? What will be your added value to the company? It is the typical question. Draw the attention of interviewer on such qualities as enthusiasm, motivation, flexibility, fast learner… Try to use words that used in job description. Generally speaking, show that you are ready and motivated for this job and that you can start now without any difficulties. What are you weaknesses? What are the points that you need to work on? Don’t give a big list or be too precise with that list. “I don’t like to work in team” or “I am always late”are very bad examples of presenting yourself. Stay global and finish your story on a positive note. For example, if you are young without much experience, you can say ‘it is normal, compared to older persons, I have fewer experiences but I am young, dynamic and I am learning fast’. Employers already know that you have less professional experience, so you don’t want to say it twice. Where do you see you in the future? In general, don’t say a job, totally different of the position, you interview is for. You just see you, for instance, in an international company, in the same field and maybe in the future are holding managerial position. Like that you show that you have a plan, you want to develop and grow. Never say directly that you want to take the job of your interviewer! Also, this question is asked to see if you take this job seriously or if you will leave in one year. So it is important to say, for example, that you want to stay in the same city and that you see any reasons to move.  When are you available? It is better to say as soon as possible (if this is the truth). If it is not the case, give an estimate or if you are already in the process of leaving your current job, tell it. To the company you are applying for, it means that the delay will be shorter, if they give you a position.   Time to ask questions back! It is better to have one or two question. For example, if you spoke about team work, ask about with how many people you will work? Show that you are interested about...

How to succeed in your job interview – Part 1

You are graduated or just want to change the jobs and already have started to send your CV. Some of companies are interested and schedule a job interview with you to know your motivation and see if you can be their future employee… Don’t panic and just follow these advises from Two Wise Monkeys on how to prepare your interview. Firstly you have to know that you will not have only one interview, but at least 2 or 3 rounds. The first one is there to see your motivation, to know more about you and if you really match the job. Then, interviews are more about technical questions or your working style (how you manage your stress, your organization…). If you pass the first round you have more chances to get the job! Presenting Yourself In general, in the beginning of the interview, interviewer will ask you to shortly describe yourself to know more about you. This part has to be short, no more than 3 minutes. Start with your name, your age, your nationality and where you live. You can speak also about your hobbies; try to find something what are you really passionate about or original (as sailing race, reptiles or the Greek mythology) to keep the attention of your interviewers. After that, go on with your professional experiences and try to speak more about the one, which is matching the most with the job you are applying for. It has to be short as well, so your interviewer going to ask more details about that later in the interview. At this point, you have to keep him/her interested. Just show that you liked what you did to make a good impression. Last but not least, speak about your education. Give just names of subjects; don’t need to explain in details what you did in every course. Speak, for example, about a project that you did at school, which can be related to the job. Furthermore, say that you liked what you did and that is the field you would like to become a professional. Stress the importance of your international experiences, like studies abroad or traineeship in other country. Usually it is regarded as an advantage and allows speaking about culture or lifestyle. Interviewer can ask you several question about the country, why did choose to go there, do you want to stay in that country, why/why not. Company Before an interview, gather all available information about the company where you will have the interview. Internet is a great place for information search. Just go on the website and navigate through it…everywhere! Employers can ask you some questions like who was the founder of the company. When? What caught your attention on the website? Give an example and details of products or services that we offer? Also, keep a little description of the company in mind, what is the image and core activities. It is a regular question. Finally, if they sell GPS navigation systems, BN or this can of name’s products, know the meaning of each abbreviation! You can lose your chance if you don’t know what it means Job Description Just before the interview, you have to study the job description you applied for in details. It will be as your guideline of questions...
