At an Interview You can
the Job Specification
From the Crowd
By practicing your Answers Before you get there
If you went into an exam knowing the questions and the other candidates didn't you would have a big advantage.
If you had practiced the answers beforehand and linked them to the Job Spec you would have a huge advantage.
The sole purpose of asking questions is to see how the answers match the Job Specification
The closer the match, the greater the candidate's chances.
When you have an interview, you are down to the select few.
Make the most of this chance.
Don't waste it.
Answers to what questions?
The main ones are.
1) Tell me about yourself!
2) What are your strengths?
3)What are your weaknesses?
4) Do you have any questions for us?
These questions are the most likely ones to come up at an interview.
Other questions are likely to come up regularly as well.
How do you answer?
That depends upon the Job Specification.
They will need to be 'tweaked' for every interview.
But you can build up a 'base' set of answers.
These answers must:
1) Have a defined structure.
2) Be based around your experience and skills.
3) Relate directly to the job applied for.
4) Highlight your suitability for the role.
5) Link strengths to the Job Specification.
6) Negate any weaknesses.
