Interview Preparation :
1. Show your softer side too.
Yes…. you should speak up and assert you ideas. But there will be times when the folk
at the top will want - will even need - for you to go along once a decision has been made,
even if you don’t agree with it.
Think about past experiences you can discuss to demonstrate you’re comfortable with the
challenges of a dynamic environment.
Just as you want to make it plain in an interview that you are not too timid to speak
up, you want to make it clear you are not over-confident or intent on dominating the
process. Demonstrate that you are able to listen without being too eager to cut off dialog.
Ask questions that reflect the concerns of the questioner in a constructive way. For instance, if you are asked what you would do in a certain situation, resist the temptation to answer before you are asked some questions of your own.
3. Keep it positive.
If there is one thing senior managers have a universal distaste for, it’s whining. Remember, every hiring manager wants to hire a team player who will bring positive
and real initiative to the job. Be ready with examples of positive suggestions about problems or issues that you took initiative on in order to demonstrate your people skills.
Steer clear of any criticism of prior managers, even if invited to offer it.
You must remember that the best-qualified person does not necessarily get the job. It is one who presents himself / herself confidently, speaks well and sells himself / herself at the interview. And this can be despite the fact that others may have better qualifications and more experience. The person who makes the interviewer believes that he has that extra magic and that the company cannot afford not to have him / her, is the one who will get the job. The extra magic is really preparation. Successful persons will tell you that to succeed there is no substitute for hard work. Similarly for a good interview there is no substitute for preparation.
