In the midst of a great need of businesses for high performing talents, it is so easy to land a ‘good’ job by simply remaining confident and mastering these 3 standard inquiries;
1. Tell us about yourself
2. Tell us what you know about our company
3. Tell us what you bring on board that will make you successful in this role
Regardless of this reality, it is sad and frankly very annoying to witness young and old alike coming for an interview woefully ill-prepared, extremely tensed and lacking self-confidence.
How do you go for an interview without the basic knowledge of the company you intend to work for, the details of the job description or the skills set and experience you possess that will make you an asset to the organization?
Employers need you just as much as you need them and not knowing your worth and the value you bring into an organization makes you a liability from the get go!
Confidence comes from adequate preparation and not some gimmick or smart move to memorize some pointers and hope to sail through. If you truly need the job, you will go above and beyond to be armed to the teeth at least to be successful at the interview and learn your way up the ladder when the opportunity is given.
In the absence of that, no excuse is good enough!
