What are the skills of college graduates to increase the probability of successful interviews?

Jacob:

I interviewed that year, and finally they asked me what other problems. I asked the gods, why do you like to work here?

Then they were excited. One started to talk about him and he loved fishing. How wonderful their country life was. Another attachment, saying how much he loves rock climbing, the whole family loves. His daughter is a student, and he is also interested in studying bees recently. Do you know a certain group? I don’t know, I will give you a science.

I didn’t do anything except smile and nod. When I finally got the offer, they said that I had a good personality and I was very happy. Of course, this is the academic world in North America. The interview is more relaxed and casual. The industry is much more formal than this and cannot be used as a reference. But the truth is the same.

They recruit future colleagues, not students. Don’t think of an interview as an exam. This is not a college admission. You are communicating with your future colleagues, not being questioned by the teacher. They pick you, you also have the right to pick them, not really let you pick and choose the work, but this mentality is very important to your state. You psychologically suggest that you have the choice of surplus, just as if you are really good, you believe in your own ability, others can believe you.

When you think of the interviewer as a future colleague, you will be confident and generous immediately. In an interview, there is nothing more important than confidence.

Anthony:

First, no preparation is available.

In fact, if you go to the interview, it is very difficult, almost half of the success, so you should cherish every interview opportunity, be fully prepared, it is best to prepare for no preparation, this should be spent Stupid Kung Fu, mainly from three aspects: 1, understand the company, department and position you are applying for; 2, behavior questions; 3, technical question. A list of questions and answers is available for each section. The so-called “preparation to no preparation” means that you can’t find new problems on the list.

Second, know who is sitting opposite you.

During the interview, you should know who is interviewing you, who is HR, who is in the business department, who is in the department, what is the position, whether it is the department head or the company’s top management, etc., so your answer is Targeted. It is best to know in advance, even if you don’t know, you have to figure it out during the interview. Sometimes the company will let you see people from different departments. If you make a mistake or don’t know, the question you answer may not be caring at all. At the point, you usually don’t want to let other people in other departments look at it. There is no chance.

Third, highlight your professional ability.

Some students may think that the employer knows that there is no experience in the school students, they will not ask any professional questions, and generally there will be on-the-job training, as long as they emphasize their own learning ability. I think this kind of thinking is very dangerous. As far as the financial sector is concerned, generally good companies are very fancy professional. Those popular companies, such as investment banks, asset management companies, fund companies, etc., will definitely ask. Professional issues, and will be more detailed, such as the impact of operating leases and capital leases on profit and loss and cash flow, or the assumptions of the option pricing model. Personally, I don’t like people to tell me that my learning ability is very strong. This is meaningless, because everyone can say this, the key is what kind of ability you already have. From another point of view, if you are more prominent than others, do you have a big comparative advantage?

Fourth, the mock interview is very important.

Mock interview is a very important part. Many people ignore this link. In fact, the mock interview can provide you with a lot of things, including checking whether your problem list is enough, listening to other people’s relatively objective evaluation and improvement opinions, and exercising. The quality of the heart and so on. You can find classmates, friends and industry insiders to do this mock interview, and don’t just do it once. You have to do it a few more times.

James:

Even though I have been working for two years now, I have recently gone to the interview and successfully took the offer.

I think the secret of successful interviews is that you are confident!

Maybe you think these two words are superficial, but in my understanding, self-confidence means that I have the courage to tell the interviewer that you have confidence in this offer; that means I have the ability to explain that you offer me this offer. Set confidence; means that I have an attitude to let you know that my ability can match my confidence, you offer this offer. Self-confidence lies in ability, attitude and humility.
