Since the pandemic, the job market, how we work, and ultimately how we get interviewed have all changed.

The following 36 job interview preparation tips will help you make a great impression and ace your next interview, whether in person, online, or over the phone.

Research the Company

Do your research ahead of time. It’s essential to know as much as possible about the company, its products, its mission, and its values.

Try the Product or Service

While this may not always be possible depending on the company, try out the products or services if you can.

Research the Job Role

Try to identify the essential requirements the role needs. Think through what this job might require. Is there something else you could bring or add to it?

Know the Interview Format

If you expect a one-on-one interview but walk into a room of 5 people facing you like some kind of inquisition – it might throw you off your A-game.

Be Authentic and Genuine

As you showcase yourself, YOU MUST hold on to these values. Don’t make things up to make yourself sound more important or accomplished.

Common Job Interview Questions

You might still get asked classic interview questions, like:  Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your biggest strength and weakness?

Prepare Questions

At the end of every job interview, you will always have time to ask any questions to the interviewers. If you struggle to think of questions, always have a couple of backup ideas.

Know the Illegal Questions

Interviewers should never ask about race, gender, age, religion, family planning, marital status, or sexual orientation.
