Enhancing Your Interview Skills

Have you ever wondered why after a countless number of interviews you still do not have a job? Have you ever wondered why some people succeed so easily for any interview they go?

You think perhaps they are lucky? I bet to differ! Their performance as well as their success at the interview is as a result of thorough preparation through research, self-examination, practicing answers to questions that are likely to be asked at the interview.

Curriculum Vitae commonly called CV includes a summary of your educational and work history as well as professional qualifications, research, publications, presentations, awards, honors and affiliations, core competence in a chronological order.

Normally, when I meet people scouting for jobs with their CVs not well organized or containing irrelevant information, I cannot help but wonder why that should be so because the CV is suppose to sell you even in your absence.

A Job interview is a conversation between an employer and a prospective employee where there is an exchange of information which allows the employer to evaluate the personality, communication skills, attitude, values, motivation, interests and technical skills of the prospective employee for the purpose of filling a position.

Interviews also provide the platform for applicants to: 

  • obtain information about the organization
  • sell yourself and skills to a prospective employer
