Interview tips

Tell a story

Tell stories about past accomplishments that help interviewers understand how you behave in different situations and help them visualize you in the role.

You can use the STAR framework to develop effective accomplishment stories. STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action, and Result. This structure will help an employer understand your accomplishments.

Know your interviewer

You really should try to find out as much as you can about your interviewer. LinkedIn is a godsend here, since you can search for their name and find out a lot.

Remember soft skills

Depending on your resume, you may have highlighted your soft skills, but the interview is where you will put them into practice. According to LinkedIn’s Global Talent Trends 2019 report, 91% of HR professionals identified soft skills as the number one emerging trend in the workplace.

Ask questions

If you don’t ask follow-up questions, you may appear unprepared and uninterested. Before your interview, write at least 3-5 questions that might be useful to you.

Find the link

Take a moment to re-read your resume and the job description to help you draw connections between the two. This will help you maximize your chances of getting the job.
