First off, re-read your resume and the job description to help you draw lines between the two. Where do they connect? We want you to take every opportunity to set yourself up for success.
That may not sound like something you need to prepare for, but most of us have done more than we think and it’s easy to forget some of our own career wins, and the lessons we learned from our mistakes. Many of the questions we ask will be along the lines of “Tell me about a time when…” or “How would you approach this situation…?”
As you start to think about your career accomplishments and what you want to highlight in your interview, don’t forget to include data. This helps your interviewer understand not just your overall achievements, but your past contributions.
Come to the interview with questions. This not only shows your interest in Qualio and the position you’re applying for, but it’s also a testament to the research you’ve done by looking into our company. Besides, this is your opportunity to interview us as well.
Ask for a minute to collect your thoughts if you need it — sometimes writing out your thoughts can help with clarity.
Find a quiet space with good internet connection where you won’t be interrupted or disturbed.
We also suggest having a notebook and a pen with you (sometimes it’s easier to scribble than type).
Check your mic, your video, and your Wi-Fi, to make sure that everything is in working order.
If you need assistive technology or any other accommodation, let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
Be mindful of the time you have. Keep an eye on the clock — it’ll fly by — and spare some time for questions.
Now, this part is important — take a breathe! Seriously, people forget to breath sometimes!
