It is all very well to list the exams you have passed or to talk about the positions you have held. But, ultimately, any employer wants to know the answer to a simple question: what can you do for me? Bear this in mind at all times. If you can, frame every answer in an interview in terms of how, specifically, hiring you will benefit the company. This shift in mindset can make an enormous difference to your success rate.
KNOW THE COMPANY
Time spent on research is always a good investment. Most interviewers can tell horror stories about candidates who didn’t bother to glean even rudimentary knowledge of the company that they say they aspire to join. If you are serious about wanting the job, you should also be serious about discovering as much as you can about the company. Even the most modest companies now usually have websites. Learn as much as you can about the firm — and be sure to show your knowledge at the interview.
