The interview is the most important step in the job search process. To interview effectively, you need to obtain information about the employer, the kind of position you want, and an understanding of your career interests and aspirations. Being able to answer questions with supportive details and in a conversational manner is very important. Hence, thorough preparation is essential.
All interviewers have two major questions in mind: (1) how well suited are you for the job, and (2) are you genuinely interested in the employer and the position? They are trying to get enough information about your background, strengths, and level of interest to answer these questions. In addition, as a prospective employee, you need to be learning as much as you can about the position and work place so you can decide if they are what you want.
