Updating your resume: After the self assessment another important task is to build or update your resume as per your skills and abilities. The resume should ideally be in bullets with as less description as possible. Making it clean and simple will eventually attract the interviewer and encourage him to go through it from top to bottom. Research: Do research about the company where you are going in for an interview. The better way is to visit the Company’s website first and get knowledge over what the company do, how they operate their business, what are their major products, who are their potential customers, what is their recent turnover and most importantly learn about the seat you have applied for that include your future job responsibilities etc. Practice for typical and targeted interview questions: After completing the research part it’s time for you to prepare for the basic and most frequently asked questions in an Interview.

You can practice these questions with a friend, career counselor or in front of a mirror. This way you can improve, enhance, develop, or revise your answers and or delivery. Final preparations: Select suitable attire that you are comfortable in, keeping in mind the culture of that organization. A business suit is always a good option.

It is perhaps the very difficult to sit in front of someone who is the master of that work for whom you are being interviewed. So just try to be confident and relax and be a bit original. Don’t try to be over smart by using some accent in talking and ending up being looking foolish so it’s better to be original.
