Job Interviewing Skills Training

The candidate that shows the most enthusiasm for the job, opportunity and company is usually the one that gets the offer - please be prepared to make your actions positive and smile a lot. Always maintain good eye contact and listen carefully to what they say - show your excitement and interest in the position and conclude the interview telling the interviewer that you are very interested in the opportunity to work for them (even if your not sure yet if this is the opportunity for you). Remain focused throughout the interview and portray a high energy level.

To prepare for the meeting ask your recruiter in advance who you will be meeting with, their positions and how long you should plan on being at the company site. Take along additional copies of your resume in case all parties do not have a copy.

Be prepared to answer specific questions regarding your long term goals; the best system you designed or worked on; your worst career mistake and where you see yourself in 2/5/10 years.

Be ready to detail your strengths and weaknesses and tell the potential employer why they should hire you. An interviewee should be able to vividly create a visual image of his or her achievements.

Good questions to ask:

  • What will be my first project?
  • In which areas do you expect me to develop new expertise?
  • How do you envision my growth in responsibilities?
  • What problem areas do you have?
  • Why is this position open?
  • What types of people typically succeed in your department?
  • What does your firm do in support of skills enhancement?

Avoid questions about benefits, salary and financial issues; these, while important, should be handled by your recruiter after you have convinced the company that you are the person they want to hire!

Interviewing Tips

Research the company that you are interviewing with beforehand. Find out as much information as you can. During the interview, ask relevant questions about the company or the position for which you are applying. The interviewer is usually impressed by someone that has done their homework. It shows that you are genuinely interested in the company.

During your interview, talk about any relevant accounting experience that you have gained through a part-time position or possibly an accounting internship.

Be able to discuss your strengths and weaknesses. Most likely, the interviewer is considering several applicants and it is important to be able to "sell" yourself. Be honest and sincere in your answers.

Bring along a copy of your resume or data sheet as well as any other relevant information such as letters of recommendations from employers/college professors.

Ensure that you arrive in plenty of time for your interview; however, try not to make the mistake of arriving too early. A good time frame would be 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment.

Last, but not least, try to relax and enjoy yourself.
