One part is your skill associated to the job ...The other key aspects are
Your Attitude, demeanor, communication skills.
If you come in with a bad attitude, or are unable to clearly articulate your strong points and value you bring to the table, that may be a negative.
If you may not have the best skill set but are willing to learn and confident and hungry..I'd hire that person.
Before every interview, prepare the subject especially the weak areas and then focus on soft skills aspect stated above. If you fail, dont let that discourage you, there will be many chances ahead and point is to get better.
Good Luck !
Hi Veronica, interviews are an opportunity to spell out more about what your goals and aspirations are, and why they align with the role you’re applying for, as well as the values of the new company. Make sure you prepare at least 4-5+ mini-stories (Challenge-Action-Result format) that vividly describe how you have achieved solutions similar to problems this company has faced, or will face. Paint a picture that YOU are THEIR solution, a better fit than the next interviewing candidate. Finally, showcase why your skill set, personality and the special magic you bring will make such a material difference for my company. Demonstrate that you understand the problem this position solves and why you are such a good fit.
