Bring Your References
Make sure you bring a copy of your references to give the interviewer at the end of the interview. If they are interested in hiring you for their position, they’ll most likely contact the individuals you have on your list of references to see what type of person you are and how you are on the job.
Research The Company
The interviewer might ask questions to see if you know anything about the business you are applying to. This is where researching the company will benefit you and could even put you at the top of their shortlist of candidates. Researching the history and values of the company can show that you have some knowledge of who they are and what they do. This will help show the interviewer that you care about the job that you’re applying for.
Highlight Your Skills
Point out what values or skills you bring to the position that would be beneficial to the company. Do you have experience in Microsoft Office, social media management, or speaking in front of crowds? Highlighting what you can bring to the table is another way to distance yourself from the other potential candidates interviewing for that position. A company is more likely to hire the person with the most skills that would apply for the position in question, so why not highlight those skills that you could have?
