Whether you have an interview scheduled tomorrow or if you just started your job search and are preparing well in advance for the interviews to come, don’t let your nerves get the better of you. In most cases, all you need to score an amazing interview is to familiarize yourself with some of the common questions asked and start crafting your answers in advance.
Though there are no guarantees that you will get the job of your dreams, you can do a lot for job interview preparation to make sure that you are ready. Some interviews are easy, but the best jobs often come after rigorous and tough job interviews that can be done by one or more people within that particular company. There are many things that you can do to make yourself the best candidate that they see, and hopefully the one that they decide would be the best addition to their company.
It may sound good to go into the interview without prepared answers thinking, probably, that if you prepare your answers will be stiff and sound rehearsed, and if you just “wing it” your answers will sound natural and present the real you, but I am afraid that may not be the way to look at it. Maybe it is not so bad to sound a little rehearsed and overly prepared. Maybe that slight stiffness will send the message that the job mattered to you enough that you did prepare. Someone who cares about how they present themselves must be more valuable than someone who “wings it.” The “wing it” person may come off caviler, egocentric, narcissistic, conceited, and just a big ole full-of-‘m-self blowhard.
