Where are some good sources for interview preparation?
well said that you never get a second chance to make the first impression. The same is with interview preparation too.
Well, I can suggest you to do the following;
Read the job description carefully
Study the organization
Study people on social media like LinkedIn etc.
Identify the pain (the pain employer feels and the solution you can offer)
prepare your interview speech
In short, you have to learn how to create an impact on the mind of the interviewer?
The whole interview story starts with something like; tell me about yourself?
In some 20–30 minutes interview all you have to do is to speak and speak only.
Show your confidence, your confident body language (Do practice before the mirror and see your face? Do you look confident? or confuse? change your expression accordingly
Express your knowledge - knowledge mean practical knowledge. What you have done before and the same knowledge can be applied again with greater efforts.
Research the organization - See their website, their blogs, LinkedIn profile. Visualize your role, the contribution you can make
Assume; at the end of the interview somebody calls to the interviewer;
Question: what about Mr. Ron?
Answer-1 (negative) - who is Mr. Ron? I don’t know there might be a candidate, I will tell you later on.
Answer-2 (positive) - Oh yeah Mr. Ron, I remember this guy, he is so intelligent, confident, he knows how to handle a difficult situation, work pressure and a lot of other things…
(You can see the difference in both replies - Now you can understand how to create an impact
