  • The company values
  • The company’s products and/or services

You should be able to relate your skills and experience to winning the role. Read the job description carefully, specifically state how your skills and experience can meet the expectations.

You’re going to need to prepare to answer relevant questions. These may be some you will encounter:

  • What was it like to work for your previous employers?
  • What are your best strengths and weaknesses?
  • Why did you leave your previous job (or why do your want to leave your current position)?
  • Why should we hire you?

3. How You Should Dress

First impressions go a long way, make sure to look your absolute best for your interview.

  • Do not look wrinkled or outdated. Go for a professional look that you feel comfortable in.
  • If you can, dress in accordance to the company’s dress code. If this info isn’t available, classic business attire is your best bet. Overdressing is better than underdressing
  • Consider steering away from super trendy, noisy outfits. Unless you are going for a high fashion position, go for it then.

4. How You Should Act

Be mindful of your facial expressions and body language, these can send non-verbal messages you may or may not be aware of.

  • Maintain good eye contact. Drifting eyes may give the wrong message of disinterest.
  • Make sure to smile, try to keep it natural.
  • Try to maintain a good posture. Slouching or leaning could be seen as a bad look.
  • Be enthusiastic!
  • Keep in mind to express gratitude at the beginning and end of the interview.

5. Ask Questions

Make sure to have questions prepared ahead of time to sprinkle in during the interview. Especially when the interviewer opens the floor to you to ask questions. Not asking anything may seem like you aren’t that interested.

These are some questions to consider asking, but feel free to be more creative to make an even better impression!

  • How long have you been with the company?
  • How did you get here?
  • What do you enjoy most about your work?
  • What is your leadership and/or communication style?
