It’s crucial that you review the job description, company mission, and website prior to the interview. See what qualifications the job description lists and think about how your own skills align with these. For example, if the listing describes the ideal candidate as a problem-solver and you’ve successfully problem-solved in past positions, share that you’re an ideal candidate because of this. Don’t shy away
from specific details, but do express a range of top abilities that match the requirements.
Take note of both soft and hard skills in the job description. If a recruiter is looking for a team player who has expert-level knowledge of content management systems, share how well you work on a team as well as specifics about your experience with such systems.
The interviewer is also likely wondering how you will be an asset to the company. As you prepare, think critically about this. What are the company’s goals, and how can you help meet those objectives? The best candidates are ones that help the company fulfill its mission, so being able to describe what you bring to the table is important.
