Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity!
The Learning Annex has an amazing Interviewing class that everyone looking for a job should take, the name of the class is Power Interviewing: Proven Techniques to Get Any Job with Barry Cohen and Mark Wallach.
Here are some tips that you should never forget when going for a job interview:
- Break the Ice:
Find something in common with the interviewer. Remember to comment on an object of mutual interest since people hire those closer to themselves.
- Summarize the product being sold (Product = YOU):
Keep your listener attention. (Remember your resume is written for the eye, interview is given for the ear). Also, remember to nod your head in agreement whenever your interviewer speaks.
- End the Interview:
When asked “do you have any questions?” You should ask questions like these:
- If I were hired whom would I report to?
- Having met me, where can you see me three years from today with your company?
- Based on my experience, how do you see me fitting into your company?
