Interview Preparation

How to prepare for an interview

The interview is the make or break of any job search. If you’ve made it to the interview stage then you deserve a pat on the back. But the work isn’t done yet. You still have to perform and execute well in order to get the job.

And sometimes, even when you’ve done that you will get overlooked anyway. If that happens it’s just a case of trying again.

What is interview preparation?

Interview preparation is a concept that is not for everyone. And the reason it’s not for everyone is because it makes people nervous. And people typically get nervous because they are lacking knowledge, skills, or experience in something. Interviews are basically a performance, and if you don’t know your lines or have the ability to think on the spot and improvise then you are going to struggle.

Interview preparation is basically like rehearsing. Which is another reason some people struggle with it. Because they think it’s silly and weird. So get the knowledge, skills, and experience you need and practise, practise, practise.

What if I don’t have the experience I need to get a job interview or job?

Volunteer. Yep, that’s it, volunteer. If you can’t get the experience you need ‘professionally’ then you are going to have to volunteer.

You need to start somewhere, and volunteering is there easiest way to start your journey of getting experience.

Alternatively, if you can spare the time and money, you can always write to an employer and ask if you can shadow someone for a day or week.

When should I prepare for an interview?

Technically, since you are reading this article, you are preparing right now. Perhaps a better question is, how do I know when I’m ready?

And the answer to that is, you can feel it. Even just the thought of going to the interview, being asked questions, or having to do an interview presentation or tasks doesn’t scare, intimidate you, or make you nervous.

You should prepare until you feel ready.

What things can I do to prepare for an interview?

You can also hire an interview preparation coach.
