Career: Being Prepared For Job Interviews

If you are to have any chance of standing out at job interviews you need to be prepared.  As a minimum make sure that you:

  1. Do some background research into the organisation you are being interviewed by.
  2. Understand the key challenges facing the organisation or the industry in which it operates.
  3. Have two or three really strong questions to ask the interviewers about the business and progression opportunities.

With information so freely available these days there really is no reason not to be prepared for a job interview.  So start setting yourself up for success at job interviews.
