Prepare for an Interview With These Questions

on March 13, 2023 in ABR Blog, Career and Job Search Tips


One of the best ways to separate yourself from the competition is to be prepared! In order to prepare for an interview, it is essential that you consider the following types of questions so that you are better prepared to impress the interviewer. Specifically:

  • What do I know about the company, its organizational culture (work environment), and the job for which I am applying? What additional information do I need before the interview? Where can I find the information I still need?
  • What factors really appeal to me in terms of this particular position and company? What negative factors are of concern at this point in time?
  • How relevant is my experience given the knowledge I currently have about the job for which I am interviewing? Which of my specific job skills (core qualifications) seem most relevant for the new position?
  • What personal qualities and strengths are likely to be most important to this job? What specific examples from my current position can I cite to show how I have used these qualities and strengths?
  • How well does this job seem to correspond to my specific job objective? How does it seem to mesh with the job factors that I consider most important for my next position?
  • What weaknesses am I likely to have for this job? How should I deal with them at the interview in order to convince the interviewer that they will not impact on my performance?
  • What specific information do I want the interviewer to know? Not to know?
  • Based on what I know about the company and job, what questions do I want to ask the interviewer?

All in All…

Knowing how to keep yourself relaxed and appearing calm during an interview is crucial. The best way to do this is to be prepared!  These are just some ideas to help you get prepared for the interview. Ultimately, it is you that must answer each question honestly and present yourself effectively.
