Interviewing Basics

If you have been selected for an interview, your resume has successfully demonstrated your qualifications for the job. Congratulations! The next step is to prove in the interview that you can do the job the way the employer wants it done.

Every job is really about solving problems. Succeed in the interview by providing proof of your capabilities and experience that (1) relate directly to solving the employer’s problems, and (2) show your fit for the organization.

Use specific examples of your skills, experience and accomplishments when responding to questions.

  • Provide evidence of your ability to do the job.
  • Help the interviewer paint a mental picture of how you will solve their problems.
  • Think “for example” each time you respond to a question.
