@Souleiman Mohamed - when preparing for an interview, here are some things that I find to be useful. I’d also recommend looking at our Tips to Getting Hired resource center. It’s a great page for tips about everything from crafting a perfect resume to knowing how (and when) to follow up with hiring managers to land your dream job.

  • Do your research about the company. Head to [COMPANY’s] website and poke around a little bit, specifically the "about us" page. It's important to find out as much as you can about the job and the company itself. It will help you prepare to answer interview questions about the company as well as help you craft questions to ask the interviewer.

    Get a sense of how they compare to other organizations in the same industry. By doing this prep research, you'll be able to determine if the company and its culture are a good fit for you and it will help you feel more confident in your interview.

  • Practice interviewing. Ask a friend or family member to conduct a mock interview with you! This will help you practice a confident speaking voice and approachable body language. While you may find this comes naturally to you, spend time performing them with friends, family, a pet, or in front of a mirror. This is a great time to review how to navigate tough interview questions.

  • Figure out what you're wearing. Don't wait until the last minute to pick out your outfit. Make sure your clothes are ready to go the night before and are stain-free and wrinkle-free. Check out these tips on what to wear to an interview!

You'll also want to know how and when to follow up after an interview.!

On the day of the interview, arrive 10 minutes early with a smile to make a great first impression. When you're ready to apply, click here to find COMPANY jobs near you! Good luck... let us know how else we can support you.
