Hi Mack! Something you can do to prepare for your first job interview is to know about the company and position you are interviewing for. This may seem obvious but I would definitely look over the job description and the company mission statement to know what you are going into. It is also common for companies to ask questions specifically about their business or position.
Here is a link to common interview questions many companies will ask:
I would look over all of these and have an answer ready for each as many of them you may be asked in your interview. You could also practice before you go to the interview. Ask a family member or friend to do a mock interview with you so you can gain confidence and won't be as nervous in your interviews. If you don't have anyone to do it with, you can even do it in front of the mirror. Having a run through before the actual interview can help a lot with nerves.
All of these steps should help you have a successful interview. Good luck!!
Whitney recommends the following next steps:
- Look over job description
- Look over common interview questions
- Do a practice interview with someone or in the mirror
