When looking for a new job, something that causes anxiety in nearly everyone – regardless how qualified they are for the position – is the job interview process.

This 3-step article offers preparing for the interview tips; serving as a self confidence booster to help you put your best foot forward!


Step 1
One of the most productive and fastest ways to find a new job is by conducting an Internet job research. Not only to locate new jobs of interest, but to research the company itself.

The more you learn about the available position and your employer prior to the job interview, the better. And already being acquainted with the nuts and bolts of the company will make starting a new job easier, if hired.

Gather as much information as possible. This will not only make you appear better informed, intelligent, and more self assured during the interview. It will also help you decide whether or not working for the company is something you might enjoy.

Step 2
After finding a new job opening of interest, prepare for the interview.

One of the job interview questions sure to be asked is what attributes you have that make you a good candidate; in other words, what makes you right for the job? Go to the interview prepared by assessing yourself beforehand.

Ask friends and former coworkers you have worked closely with what work-related traits you have that has earned their respect.

Another question that might be asked is what work areas you have had problems with in the past?

Be candid and honest when examining yourself; besides strong points, in what areas are you weak? By preparing for this type question ahead of time and rehearsing possible answers, you can seize the opportunity to turn a negative into a positive and impress the employer.

Step 3
How best to prepare for the interview involves several aspects; including preparing a resume and possibly a portfolio, making initial contact, setting up an interview, and deciding what to wear.

Also prepare by making a list of sample job interview questions and practicing your answers. Be careful, however, to sound spontaneous instead of rehearsed.
