Trust us: after working closely with hundreds of clients during hiring interviews, we are knowledgeable about the best ways to conduct interviews.
First advice: Conduct research.
The most typical error job hopefuls make during interviews is having little to no information of the firm. If you don’t know what the company does, interviews are simply plain difficult!
In light of this, our top interview advice is to extensively research the firm before the interview. Look at the business’ website, current online news items, social media platforms, and anything else you can uncover. The objective is to develop a working understanding of the company’s products, principles, and culture as well as the market environment. By doing this, you’ll be in a better position to market yourself and have the chance to consider which of your traits or experiences, should you be recruited, might help them achieve their objectives.
Take it a step further and search up the people you will be meeting on LinkedIn if you know their names. This will help you understand their background and any shared interests you may have with the interviewer.
