Are you ready to take on any type of interview that comes your way? Don’t be caught off guard by the different types of interviews that employers might use to evaluate you. With these tips and more, you can ace any type of interview like a pro.

Traditional Interviews

These are the most common types of interviews, and they’re all about presenting your best self. Answer all questions confidently and demonstrate that you have an understanding of the company’s mission, values, and goals.

Dress professionally and arrive early to show that you are punctual and organized. Be sure to research the company and the role before the interview!

Behavioral Interviews

Employers use these interviews to evaluate your past behavior and predict your future performance. Make sure you have specific examples of your achievements and skills ready to go. Remember to identify the key competencies required for the role and prepare specific examples of how you have demonstrated these competencies in the past.

Phone Interviews

Just because you’re not face-to-face doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take these interviews seriously. Prepare as if it were an in-person interview, find a quiet, distraction-free space, and speak clearly and confidently.

Have your job description handy, as the employer may ask specific questions about your skills and experience.

Video Interviews

This type of interview is on an exponential rise in the past few years.

How to nail them?

Practice with a friend or family member beforehand to ensure that your internet connection and other bits of technology are working properly.

Group Interviews
