Updated: Apr 6, 2022



One step closer to entering your dream job, so it’s important to be prepared and excel in the interview.


Here is a checklist for you to best prepare your interview!


1. Understand the job description.


Go through the job description, highlight keywords and main duties in this role, prepare one example for each to demonstrate your capabilities and experience. Try to explain to the interviewer, what you have done in the past/previous role, what tool/software/system you worked with to complete each job task, and most importantly, your greatest achievement in that role.


2. Research the company before head.


Do a bit of research about the company, you could find comprehensive information from the company about us page, understand what they do, what are their main service lines, what the company has accomplished recently. You could also read relevant news about the company, to know what they have done in the past to make them successful and what they have contributed to the society. It’s always a good idea to tell the interviewer that you and the company share the same visions.


3. Practice! Practice! Practice!


Ask a friend or family member to do a mock interview with you. Write down the question you are not confident with or think you could have answered better. Then go through these questions, again and again, write down some common and notes for yourself. Keep practicing your answer, till you could smoothly present in front of your friend and family and you are confident to convince the interviewer with the answer.


4. Be comfortable with the camera.


Under the COVID situation, a lot of companies prefer to have video interviews through Zoom or Microsoft Teams rather than holding a face-to-face interview. People are easy to get nervous when seeing themselves on the camera. It is important to feel comfortable and confident on the screen. Hint: You could use Zoom to record yourself, and playback to see how you looked in the video, what part of the question you have stuck and if your camera and microphone are working.


5. Be punctual.


No matter if you are going to a face-to-face interview or a virtual meeting with the hiring team. Try to attend the meeting 5 minutes early. It will help you to feel less nervous and comfortable with the environment, and likely to perform better.
