It isn’t overly helpful to tell a possible future employer that you are ‘organised’ without telling them examples of how you implement your organisational skills. For example, you could tell a prospective employer how you organised an event and had to manage various details and aspects of the event.
You can impress a potential employer by asking well thought out questions outside of the usual questions they would hear in every interview. We have created a blog with a round-up of a few great questions you can ask your interviewer here:
5 Great Questions to Ask in Your Next Interview:
If you are keen to work at where you are interviewing for, having knowledge about the company will put you in good stead. Not only will this show the employer your interest it will show them that you are dedicated to taking time to learn and develop your knowledge about the organisation.
There may be some interviews where the interviewer will want specifics. Whether that be specific skillset examples or better understanding your personality, such as, if you say you are adventurous, how are you ‘adventurous’.
The interviewer may also ask propping questions such as ‘are you interviewing anywhere else. These questions can feel overwhelming at the moment, so make sure you have responses ready and if you are unsure of how to respond, be honest, let the interviewer know that you will have to come back to the question at a later time.
The best thing you can do in an interview is honest. You need to clearly state what you are capable of, what you believe you can achieve and what you still require development on. Telling a prospective employer you can do things you actually can’t only land you in hot water later. You want to land a job because you as YOU are the perfect fit.
