They are:

      • Research the company and the interviewer

      • Prepare questions to ask
      • Prepare answers to difficult questions
      • Practice aloud

Research the Company & the Interviewer
The first step in preparing for an interview is to research the company and, if possible, the interviewer.

Match Your Strengths to the Company Profile
Once you have the relevant company information, you will need to work out the best way to convey what you can do and to demonstrate how you will add value to the organisation.

Prepare Questions to Ask
Take the time to develop relevant and insightful questions for each particular interview.

Prepare Answers to Difficult Questions
In addition to asking insightful questions, you’ll want to be prepared to answer questions.


Practice Aloud
Start by writing rough notes of how you would introduce your background, ask your questions and answer the interviewer’s questions.
