Interview Prep

Interview Prep

Interview Prep –so now you have the interview— this is where the real work begins.  How much time should you spend on prepping for an interview?  6-8 hours.  2 hours to review the job description line by line.  2 hours to research the company, website, articles, and everything about the company.  2 hours to practice your stories. 2 hours getting your outfit ready, getting driving directions and doing a trial run if possible.  If you have time to hire an interview coach —you can practice doing a mock interview to get you primed for the big event.  You will need an extra 20 minutes to watch this important Ted Talk by Amy Cuddy on body language. http://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are
