An interview is an opportunity for the company to learn about you, and for you to learn about them. It’s an EXCHANGE of information where both you and the company explore a potential “relationship.” The process of interviewing allows both the interviewer and the candidate to get the information they need to make good employment decision.

Most interview questions come from an interviewer’s concern with three questions:
  • Why do you want to work with us? Questions to verify your motivation and interest in the company
  • What can you do for us? Questions to know whether or not you have the skills to excel at the job.
  • Who are you? Questions to know whether or not you will be a good “fit” for the company

The interviewer wants to:

  • Learn more about your background -education, experience, career goals
  • Give you information about the company
  • Determine if you and the company/position are a good match

You are hoping:

  • To present information about yourself
  • To solicit information about the company
  • To determine if the company is a good match for you.
