The most important step to landing a job is being prepared for the interview. Learn what to think about and what to prepare with these healthy tips from Man Group.
1. Do your research
Fail to plan and you plan to fail. You are certain to be asked what you know about the company, so make sure you've done your homework on things like their latest earnings announcements, performance and product launches. Also take a look at recent developments in the industry and relevant regulations so you can converse with confidence.
2. Practice your answers
Although there is no set format that every job interview will follow, there are some questions that you can almost guarantee will crop up. You should prepare answers to some of the most common interview questions about your personal strengths and weaknesses, as well as being able to explain why you would be the best person for the job.
3. Stay calm
Good preparation is the key to staying in control. Plan your route, allowing extra time for any unexpected delays and get everything you need to take with you ready the night before. Remember to speak clearly, smile and remember that your interviewers are just normal people, and they may be nervous too!
4. Ask questions
You should always have some questions for your interviewer to demonstrate your interest in the position. Prepare a minimum of five questions, some which will give you more information about the job and some which delve deeper into the culture and goals of the company.
