Don't show up at an
interview unprepared. You need to impress the interviewer with your
understanding of the business and a well thought-out argument as to why you are
the best person for the job. Read everything you can about the company prior to
your interview. The company's products, services, location, major activities,
and chief competitors are must-knows.
Know more about the job
you're applying for. Get the necessary information about the job: the
description, major responsibilities, geographical location, salary range,
deadline for application and starting date of employment.
Know your strengths and weaknesses before you walk into the door of the
interview room. Make sure your qualifications match what the organization is
looking for. Assess your relevant experience, related training, and other
activities related to the applied job position.
