Seventh Step: Obtain Interviews

Here is some advice to follow before, during, and after your interviews.

Before the interview:

1. Interviewers have extremely diverse style – “the chit-chat”; let’s-get-to-know-each-other style; the interrogation style of question after question; the tough-probing why, why, why style; and many others. Be ready for anything.

2. Practice being interviewed with a friend and ask for a critique.

3. Prepare to ask at least five good questions that are not readily answered in the company literature.

4. Anticipate possible interview questions and prepare good answers ahead of time.

5. Avoid back-to-back interviews – they can be exhausting.

6. Dress conservatively and tastefully for the interview. Be neat and clean.

7. Arrive about ten minutes early to collect your Thoughts before the interview. Check your name on the interview schedule, noting the name of the interviewer and the room number.

8. Review the major points you intend to cover.

During the interview:

1. Give a firm handshake when greeting the interviewer. Introduce yourself using the same form the interviewer uses. Make a good initial impression.

2. Retain your poise. Relax. Smile occasionally. Be enthusiastic throughout the interview.

3. Good eye contact, good posture, and distinct speech are musts. Don’t clasp your hands or fiddle with jewelry, hair, or clothing. Sit comfortably by your chair. Do not smoke, even is asked.

4. Have extra copies of your resume with you.

5. Have your story down pat. Present your selling points. Answer questions directly. Avoid one-word answers but don’t be wordy.

6. Most times, let the interviewer take the imitative, but don’t be passive. Find good opportunities to direct the conversation to things you want the interviewer to hear.

7. To end on a high note, the latter part of the interview is the best time to make your most important point to ask pertinent questions.

8. Don’t be afraid to “close.” You might say: “i/m very interested in in the position and I have enjoyed this interview.”

9. Obtain the interviewer’s business card or address and phone number so that you can follow up later.

After the interview:

1. After leaving the interview, record the key points that arose. Be sure to record who is to follow up on the interview and when a decision can be expected.

2. Objectively analyze the interview with regard to questions asked, answers given, your overall interview presentation, and the interviewer’s response to specific points.

3. Send a thank-you letter mentioning any additional items pertinent to your application and your willingness to supply further information.

4. If you do not hear within the time specified, write or call the interviewer to determine your status.

Eighth Step: Follow-Up

If you are successful, you will be invited to visit the organization. The in-company interview will run from a few hours to a whole day. The company will examine your interest, maturity, enthusiasm, assertiveness, logic, and company and functional knowledge. You should ask questions about things that are important to you. Find out about the environment, job role, responsibilities, opportunity, current industrial issues, and the firm’s personality. The company wants to know if you are right person for the job; just as importantly, you want to know if this is the right job for you.
