Receiving a call back from your potential future employer is exciting indeed. But, now that you have one foot through the front door, the next step is where the real work begins.
Your interview answers, too, reflect who you are and give important insights into how you can contribute to the role and fit in with the team and the company’s values.
As such, you want to be as prepared as you can. The good news is that you already know to a reasonable extent what your interviewer will ask you.
Therefore, the next step is to prepare succinct, relevant responses to some of the most common job interview questions that a hiring manager will ask you during your conversation and practise them with a friend or a mirror.
If you have the fortune of having a video interview instead, here’s a tip: Write your answers down ahead of your interviews and keep them next to you during the interview. Throw in hand gestures so you don’t look like you are reading off a list. Practise the delivery of your answers while making sure you sound as natural as possible.
