How to Prepare for an Interview | Job Hunting


One of the most important things you can do
in preparing for an interview is, if it’s at all possible, find out who is actually
interviewing you. Who’s conducting the interview? And then what you want to do is go on LinkedIn
and find out as much information about them as possible, so that as soon as you walk into
the room, you have a point of reference. You can say, “Hey, I heard that you graduated
from the University of Wisconsin,” or “I didn’t realize this, but you worked at Microsoft
before you came to this company.” As much as possible, you want a level of familiarity,
so that when you walk into the interview you lose the sense of tension and sense of nervousness. If you know something personal about the individual,
or something in the context of what they’ve done in their career, that’s a perfect segway
into the interview. So that’s really how you ultimately want to
prepare is you want to know something about this individual. Don’t feel afraid of actually asking who is
going to be conducting the interview. Get their name. Google search them. Learn as much as you can about them so that
by the time you go in for that interview, you have a frame of reference so you can make
a connection and make a great impression. That’s what you need to do in preparing for
an interview.
