How to Prepare for an Interview

There are many different aspects involved in finding a job. From preparing your resume, searching for job postings, filling out multiple applications which leads to finally getting an interview. Whether it is a phone interview or an in-person interview you should always prepare yourself. LaborQuick Staffing Greenville NC is here to help you prepare to succeed.

Phone Interviews

Any interview can be nerve-racking, but we would argue a phone interview is the least never-racking of all. You do not have to sit in front of a person or a camera and pretend that your palms aren’t sweating. You also do not need to dress to impress as you would in a face to face interview. What you do need to do is prepare for are the questions you will be asked. Phone interviews are usually the first time you are speaking to a staffing agency Greenville NC. Typically an interviewer will say “tell me about yourself” and also ask questions such as:

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Why did you apply for this position?
  • Why should we hire you?
  • Why do you want to work here?

The phone call lasts about 15 to 30 minutes and ends with the interviewer letting you know that they will keep in touch with you. Within a few days, they will let you know by email whether you are a good fit to continue on in the interview process.

In-Person Interviews

For most full-time positions, an in-person interview is scheduled after a phone or virtual interview. At this point, you are making an impression and they are interested in you as a possible new employee, but they need to know more than what was covered in the basic over the phone interview. The role of LaborQuick Staffing agency Greenville NC is to ask the interviewee more in-depth questions in order to determine if they are the right fit for the position. Examples of some questions they may ask include the following:

  • How do you handle stress?
  • How do you define success?
  • What are your work values?
  • What can you bring to the company?

Since it is in person, it is important to dress professionally, meaning suits and dresses. Even if it is not the nature of the company, it is always best to wear professional attire in an interview.
