In the competitive landscape of hunting for their next role, job seekers must equip themselves with a comprehensive toolkit of strategies to navigate the interview process successfully. 

nTech Workforce teams up with Shantelle Dunlap, Client Relations Coordinator, to outline the essential steps to prepare for a job interview and leave a lasting impression on hiring managers.



Preparing for a job interview requires thorough planning and research to stand out as a candidate. Thoughtful interview preparation includes:

  • Updating and crafting your professional resume
  • Familiarizing yourself with the company and role
  • Anticipating and practicing possible interview questions


How Can Interviewees Best Utilize Their Resumes for a Job Interview?

Dunlap suggests to interviewees: “Crafting a professional resume that showcases your expertise is crucial for acing your next interview” 

We previously outlined the best practices for quantifying value on your resume. In addition to listing skills and experiences that align with the role and company, consider identifying transferable skills in parts where you lack direct experience. Indeed lists steps for crafting a “perfect resume”.

You want your resume to tell a story about your qualifications and experience. It should aim to hook the employer, “making [them] interested enough in you as a candidate to schedule an interview.” (Indeed). 


How Can Job Seekers Research and Familiarize Themselves with the Company and Position Before the Interview?

For job seekers, thorough research is key to acing the interview process. But where can you start?

  1. Start by delving into your target company's website
    1. This is where you can absorb crucial information about its mission, history, values, culture, products, and services
    2. Tip: the "About Us" section serves as an invaluable resource
  2. Don't overlook the company's social media presence
    1. Platforms like LinkedIn offer glimpses into recent activities and accomplishments
    2. Connecting with the hiring manager or other employees on LinkedIn can provide promising insider insights
  3. Conduct a meticulous review of the job description
    1. This ensures a clear understanding of employment terms, duties, and requirements
    2. Prepare questions for the interviewer for any aspects that need clarification; this deepens your understanding beyond what's available online

By conducting quality research ahead of time, interviewees set themselves up for success in answering any questions that might arise. 


What are Common Interview Questions? How Should Candidates Approach Answering Them?

Dunlap explains, “During interviews, candidates often encounter a mix of character, behavioral, and situational questions, each aiming to gauge different aspects of their suitability for the role.” Prepping for these diverse questions can help you navigate through even the most difficult questions. 

Here's a compilation of commonly asked interview questions to help you prepare:

  • "Tell me about yourself."
  • "Why are you interested in working for this company?"
  • "Why would you be an asset to the company?"
  • "Tell me about a time that you had to deal with a difficult situation. How did you handle it?"
  • "Where do you see yourself in five years?"
  • "Can you provide an example of when you had to work as part of a team?"
  • "Let’s say that you gave a presentation during a meeting. Your coworker, Nancy, provides you with negative feedback. How would you handle this situation?"
  • "Do you have any questions for us?"

Candidates should be ready to address these, ideally with specific examples showcasing their skills and experiences tailored to the job. For situational questions, employing the S.T.A.R. (Situation, Task, Action, Result) Method is recommended for structured and comprehensive responses.

At nTech, we offer a personalized, advantageous interview preparation service; candidates who engage in interview preparation typically achieve favorable outcomes.



During the interview, it's crucial to present yourself as the ideal candidate by showcasing expertise that aligns with the company’s needs. Moreover, exhibiting confidence and professionalism are key traits that hiring managers look for in ideal candidates. 


How Can Candidates Effectively Communicate Their Skills, Experiences, and Accomplishments During the Interview?

Dunlap highlights the importance of effectively showcasing professional value during the interview. Candidates should:

  • Tailor responses to the job requirements, listening attentively without rushing
    • Taking a moment to consider responses ensures effective communication
  • Utilize the STAR Method when necessary 
    • Candidates should describe specific past events or situations, outline the goals they were working towards, explain the actions taken, and detail the outcomes and lessons learned


What Strategies Can Job Seekers Employ to Demonstrate Confidence and Professionalism During the Interview?

During interviews, candidates can employ various strategies to present themselves as a well-rounded, exemplary candidate. Remember to:

  • Speak slowly and demonstrate effective communication skills
  • Ask clarifying questions to showcase engagement and interest
  • Prepare 3-4 general questions for the interviewer to demonstrate preparedness and professionalism
  • Dress professionally, maintain a quiet environment, ensure a well-groomed appearance, and secure a stable internet connection 
  • Provide concrete examples to illustrate skills, establish credibility, and promote confidence

The final step in the interview process is just as important as the preparation and execution. A thoughtful follow-up approach not only demonstrates another level of consideration but also leaves a positive impression on hiring managers. 


How Should Candidates Follow Up After the Interview?

Candidates should attempt a follow-up note after the initial interview. It's highly recommended for candidates to craft a thoughtful "Thank You" email or message. 

This gesture not only expresses gratitude for the chance to delve deeper into the company and the role but can also serve as a way to distinguish yourself. It reaffirms your interest in the role and reiterates why you are their ideal candidate for the position. Dunlap comments, “Taking the time to send a personalized note demonstrates appreciation for the interviewer's time and further underscores your genuine interest in the position.” 



By following these steps, you can position yourself as a strong contender for the job. With the right preparation and mindset, securing your dream job is within reach.
