How to ace your online interview and stand out
Research the company in advance
Be prepared for the basic interview questions
Think about what you might be asked during the interview. By preparing your answers in advance to some of the common questions during job interviews, you will not have to think about your accomplishments, weaknesses or any other critical skills because you will have a prepared answer. Reflect on your accomplishments and skills you have acquired throughout your experience in the workforce. Here are a few common questions the recruiter might ask you:
- Why should we hire you?
- What’s your biggest weakness?
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
- Tell me about a challenge you overcame at work?
- If I call your current/previous employer, what would he/she say about you?
- Tell me about your experiences related to the job position you are applying to?
Practice with a friend or family member
Reread the job description to find any skills you can mention during the interview
Prepare a few questions to ask the employer at the end of the interview. It is always good to show your interest in the job and company, so don’t be afraid to ask questions! It could be what makes you stand out to the employer.
