  • What do you have to offer? Skills, accomplishments, experience, goals..
  • Research before hand (products, size, services, number of employees, history, and mission.)Use the information obtained to form questions to ask the interviewer at the end of the session.
  • In the end, employers hire people they like, and who will interact well on an interpersonal basis with the rest of the staff. Therefore, you should communicate that you are a likable candidate who can get along well with others. From the employer’s perspective, hiring is a risky, expensive business.

    19. 19. Interviewing Myths & FactsMyth: The candidate with the best education, skills, and experience will get the job Reality Check: Employers hire individuals for many different reasons. Education, skills, and experience are only a few of the several hiring criteria. If employers hired only on the basis of education, skills, and experience, they would not need to interview candidates. Such static information is available on applications and resumes. Employers interview because they want to see how you look and interact with them, how you would handle various work situations, and how well you fit into the organization.
    20. 20. Interviewing Myths & FactsMyth: If the interviewer asks if I have any negatives or weaknesses, I should indicate I have none Reality Check: You should be honest. Everyone has negatives. If you indicate you have none, the interviewer knows you are being less than candid. But neither should you blurt out your worst negatives. Identify a weakness and talk about how you are working to overcome it.
    21. 21. Interviewing Myths & FactsMyth: I’ll be at a disadvantage because I’ll benervous Reality Check: If you practice some stress reduction techniques, such as taking deep breaths and focusing attention on the questions, you should be able to project confidence in the interview. Keep in mind, many interviewers are under pressure to hire the right candidate.
    22. 22. Interviewing Myths & FactsMyth: Because I am a college student, I do not have the ability to negotiate a salary Reality Check: You can prepare for salary negotiations by researching typical salary ranges prior to your interview. Ask the interviewer what would a person with my qualifications earn in this position, and let the employer introduce a number.
    23. 23. Interviewing Myths & FactsMyth: My major goal in the interview is to get the job Reality Check: Your major goal should be the same as the interviewer’s – gain useful information from which you can determine if this position and organization are a good fit.
    24. 24. When you walk in the room the very first impression you make on theinterviewer can have a great influence on the rest of the interview.It is important that you introduce yourself, shake hands, and arefriendly. The first question is often a "breaking the ice" (establish arapport) type of question.
