Strategies for Acing Your Next Interview

Strategies for Acing Your Next Interview

The secret to acing a Russel & Lea Inc job interview (or any interview, really) is preparation. We live in a world where information is literally at our fingertips, making it easy to walk into a meeting knowing everything there is to know about a company, what it does, and its leadership team.

Researching the company should also include finding out as much as possible about the position for which you are applying. This is an easy way to show initiative, and it proves to the hiring manager that you’re genuinely interested in the role. We also recommend checking out a company’s social media feeds so that you’re up to date on current events and any content that’s been posted.

While it may not be possible to know every interview question in advance, there are classic queries that are likely to be present in any meeting, including one with Russell & Lea Inc. Tell me about yourself, What are your strengths, and Where do you see yourself in five years may not be asked verbatim, but they are likely to be expressed in one form or another. When you have answers worked out, practice them in front of a mirror so your responses are seamless.

One final tip: know your résumé, but don’t repeat it word-for-word. Condense your work history and experiences into statements about who you are and how you do what you do. Then, back this information up with stories that illustrate your points.

We want our applicants to feel confident when they meet with us about a prospective position, and if you use these tips you will. Learn more about our interview process by liking Russell & Lea Inc onFacebook.
