Be prepared. Think about what questions you would ask if you were then and rehearse your answers. Have a friend or loved one interview you and have them give you honest feedback. Rehearse in front of a mirror.
Research the company or organization and know a little background on them. Know who the CEO or manager is. Look to see if there are any recent news articles on them.
Be at least 15 minutes early. Know where you are going a head of time. Drive there a couple days prior. The last thing you want is to assume you know where you are going and not being able to find the building. If you can drive there during the time you are actually going to drive there for the interview so you know if there may be a lot of traffic or what not. (Just read that it’s over Zoom but I’m still going to leave this for someone else that might find it helpful).
Make sure your computer is ready and connected to the internet. Make sure your background isn’t distracting to then. Dress to impress. First impressions go a long way.
Think of key words that you will want to use. If it’s a “one man Army” then I would use words like self-starter, time management, independent, things like that. Use the word leader instead of manager.
It was already mentioned but it’s a great tip. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Have a question prepared because they are probably going to ask you at the end of the interview if you have any questions.
One of my favorite questions that they can ask is “why should we hire you compared to everyone else that’s applying?”
Respond with something like “I don’t know everyone that’s interviewing for this position so I can’t speak on them but what I can tell you is what my strengths are and what you can expect to get from me…” This is an honest and humbling answer and allows you to highlight your traits and throw in those key words that we talked about.
Another good question they might ask is “what are some of or one of your weaknesses?” Don’t respond with “I work to hard.” That’s a BS answer. Be honest. Say “one of my weaknesses is time management. I believe I am still good with time management and I always get things done before the deadline but I believe that everyone can work and improve on something and for me it would be time management.”
At the end thank them for there time and the opportunity.
Good luck my man!
