Acing Your Job Interview

By, 03/07/2012

US News recently ran an insightful article on some (perhaps not so secret) tips to acing your next job interview. Of course, the list isn’t exhaustive and many of the points may seem like common sense, but they’re frequently forgotten maxims. To summarize the major theme, it’s about preparation. Prepare before the interview by familiarizing yourself with the company and the role you’re applying for.

Prepare for the interview by knowing your key strategic attributes and how you can help the company. And lastly, prepare for the period after the interview by having a list of smart follow-up questions to ask. Of course, a successful job interview may not always lead to a job offer, but following the aforementioned rules (and avoiding these mistakes) may just improve your chances.
