The Best Ways to Prepare for an Interview

It’s essential to prepare well for a job interview, but you don’t want to appear over-rehearsed. This can be a tough balance to strike, but through our Top Notch Consultants interviewing experiences we’ve found that the following strategies put candidates in position to impress.

The first thing to remember is that it’s important to practice for different types of interviews. Speaking with an interviewer on the phone isn’t the same kind of experience as meeting in person. The lack of nonverbal communication signals means your normal preparations may not be effective. It’s best to rehearse for phone, video, and in-person interviews just in case.

It’s important to practice several ways of introducing yourself. The interviewer will most likely lead you into this by asking you to walk through your résumé or give a few details about your career. If you have several different approaches to respond to these introductory questions, you can adjust to specific company needs or common ground you might share with the interviewer.

Practicing things like a firm handshake, eye contact, and a warm smile are also helpful. We want to see enthusiasm when we evaluate potential additions to Team Top Notch Consultants, and these are simple ways to communicate it right off the bat.
