- What helps make you feel secure when entering a job interview?
Going in prepared with a good knowledge of the company I'm interviewing for and the position I'm interviewing for. Having well thought out answers to why the company should hire me and I what I have to offer.
- What types of questions do you feel uncomfortable answering? (What do you anticipate to be the 'correct' answers?)
What are your weaknesses? I really want to be honest but always wonder if what I say will work against me? Not sure what the correct answer is. I think its good to be honest but don't name a weakness that could truly be determental to doing the job.
That and the "where do you see yourself five years from now?" question. I think the 'right' answer is growing the developing your skills in the company and staying in the company but honestly that's not always what I want.
- What are some good questions to ask?
Interviewers should ask questions like what skills do you have offer and why you would be a good fit?
- Do you follow up?
Yes. After I interview, I send an email to the members of the hiring committee thanking me for my time.
I do call back later to ask about the status of the hiring process and when a decision will be made but not so often as to pester them.
