How to Prepare for an Interview You have to prepare for an interview. No matter if you’re the interviewer or the one who is being interviewed. First, you must define the goal of the interview, what’s the purpose? Second, identify and analyze the other party, select the right people to talk to whenever you have a choice. Third, prepare a list of topics to discuss in the interview. The employment Interview is designed, more than all the others doctrines, to explore the viability of the applicant. This more in depth interview process continues to seemingly proceed like the others with subtle differences. The same could be said of the company; conducting background checks on the applicant. Before employment, however, there are some steps that one must follow such as the pre-interview steps. Researching the company, contacting potential employers, ensure that a few of you most impressive accomplishments, that are relevant to the job, are present or easily identifiable. There are various ways in which an interview for employment can be conducted. The Panel interview, or the group interview, the Stress interview, to measure how one responds to stress, the audition interview, where you may have to demonstrate your particular skills, and the behavioral interview, where you have to share a past experience that would make a good predictor of the future. None of this is important without a professional appearance. You should dress appropriately for the job in which you are applying. It would be unwise to be dressed in a suit for a job at McDonalds, like wise a shirt and jeans would be inadequate for a job at JP Morgan Chase. Wearing either style of dress at the inappropriate time could be seen as not taking the interview of the, respective, corporations seriously and one could easily misconstrue this as condescending. In the final analysis of this we find that all three play a pivotal role in the day to day business of life and the how we react overall and respond to chances and opportunities. If we choose to dress the part, play the game, do what is demanded of us in various settings we are only setting ourselves up for success. Success we can be proud of.
