Questions on at the interview

The long-awaited moment has come. You have been invited to an interview! A natural question is how to prepare properly. There is no unambiguous universal answer, because everything depends on certain cases of both positions and companies where you apply. But at the same time, I want to share useful information.

Imagine that you have only 5 minutes of time to make the right professional impression, think in advance how you should act, how you should sound, what to say to make the right impression?

Record your mini speech on the resume on video, I assure you, you will be surprised when you see yourself from the outside. Make a home preparation of your speech. 
Advertise yourself, sell yourself, highlight your advantages. You will have a minimum of time, rehearse your speech, understand , remember that you must definitely tell and mention the key things. What is important in your experience that correlates with the vacancy you are applying for.

Be prepared for questions about professionalism, achievements, and projects. About failures.. Why are you considering offers or why did you leave the company.? Be prepared for uncomfortable questions. And of course, HP's favorite question and an important topic for applicants is remuneration. Be prepared to speak directly on this topic.

And of course, start any training with a detailed study of the employer's company where you are applying.

You are expected to fully study all the details of the company and all the latest news of both the company and the sector as a whole. Look at resignations and appointments, news, look through linkedin and maybe you know colleagues from this company..? And this will be a good bridge for you in the future if everything goes well, as well as the opportunity to get an insider In the present)

Questions about your previous job and the reason why you left there. Here it is better to be honest and, at the same time, diplomatic.

Do not slander the previous team and the manager.

Believe me: the ability to admit mistakes and learn from them always commands respect.
