Interview Pro Tip #3
Reread the job description, and then read it again.
Interview questions can be broken down into three sections: critical thinking, soft skills (emotional intelligence), and technical proficiencies. Most of the technical questions will come straight from the job description. You may think its good enough to be proficient at your skill set and that you know everything there is to know about your chosen field but each job description is unique and can peppered with surprises. We recently had an Accounts Receivable position and buried within the job description was that this position would also provide sales support and be responsible for trade show setup and teardown. If we had not thoroughly prepared the candidate for the interview with careful review of the job description, this aspect of the job would have come as a complete shock. Your mastery of the job description will not only prepare you for questions within the interview but will also convey to the interviewer that your are truly interested in this opportunity. Read it twice, and your interview will be extra nice.
