Interviewing potential employees not only gives us a chance to speak with promising individuals, but it also gives you a chance to express why you want to work with Midcontinent Communications. Below are some tips that will help you ace your interview.
Sit down with a friend or family member and run through some practice questions. If you really want some valuable feedback - videotape your practice session. You'll be able to see firsthand what you're doing well and what you need to improve on.
A job interview is the perfect time to ask any questions you might have about the position you are applying for. Prepare a list of questions you would like to have answered. Doing so will show initiative and an active interest in the hiring process.
Being part of a professional organization means dressing like a professional. Appearance isn't everything, but it's certainly a part.
Show up on time and know where you should be. You typically want to be at an interview fifteen minutes before it is scheduled. Don't be afraid to call ahead to make sure you are clear on where you are supposed to be and when.
Being knowledgeable about the industry, company and people you are attempting to join is a must. Read up on industry news and trends. Be prepared to speak your intentions, discuss your talents and what you have to offer as an employee. Most importantly: be relaxed and be yourself. We want to see you succeed, so take a deep breath and enjoy the experience!
