Preparing for a job interview? Read these 6 tips first | Articles

Job Market Monitor

I used to be pretty sure that the only way to get a raise working in media was to switch jobs. This led to several job changes throughout my career, which, of course, included the requisite interviews to get those jobs.

I’ve picked up a few pointers that have helped me become a relatively confident interviewer over the years. These are interview methods that have helped me land jobs at a couple of large media companies (and some smaller ones, too).

So, here are six things that have helped me walk out of interviews with a healthy amount of confidence:

1. If you think you’re rambling, you are.

2. Don’t say, “That’s a good question.” 

3. Over-prepare.

4. Stop thinking of it as a Q&A, and start thinking of it as a conversation.

5. If you don’t like how you answered something in an interview, write a thought-out answer and email it when you get home.

6. Work in something personal about yourself that shows why you’d be good at a certain job.
