Although you may be the most qualified prospect for the job, you need to prepare for the job interview. Why? I am glad you asked. Interviewing is a learned skill that gives the employer an opportunity to get to know you by:
How you present yourself
How well you interact with the interviewing panel
How you describe your work history and education.
An interview is also a time for you to get a feel for the company and its corporate culture. Ideally, the interview should be a tool for both parties to determine — is this career opportunity a good fit?
There are10 interview tips used to guide you in how to respond to interview questions and convince the hiring manager that you are the right candidate for the job.
Work on your answers. Even if you know you are qualified to do the job, make sure the interviewer believes you can too. A reminder is to prepare well-thought-out answers to questions that will most likely be asked.
