Potential Area's Of Focus during the Interview Process:

INTERVIEWING IS AN ACQUIRED SKILL

You can learn how to anticipate and prepare for certain questions, and you can learn how to present yourself in the best way possible.

But as with any other skill, the more you practice and the more completely you prepare for each interview, the better you will perform and the more comfortable you will be.

When asking questions, a potential employer is looking to answer:

  • Are you going to take any job offer (shooting in all directions..) or did you seriously plan your job search target and career objectives?
  • Have you done your homework?
  • Do you want to ‘get a foot in the door’ OR Are you going to bring added value to the company (How do you see this job matching your skills?)?
  • Are you selective in your job search?

Consider the job requirements and your background before you answer these interview questions. Keep in mind that you should try to construct an answer that will explain who you are and why you are there.

Area's of focus in the Interview:

Integrity
Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness of one's actions. Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy, in that it regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs.

Skills/Skill set
A skill is the learned capacity to carry out pre-determined results often with the minimum outlay of time, energy, or both. Skills can often be divided into domain-general and domain-specific skills. For example, in the domain of work, some general skills would include time management, teamwork and leadership, self motivation and others, whereas domain-specific skills would be useful only for a certain job. Skill usually requires certain environmental stimuli and situations to assess the level of skill being shown and used.

Fit/Culture
The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or group

Dependability
Dependability is a value showing the reliability of a person to others because of his/her integrity, truthfulness, and trustfulness, traits that can encourage someone to depend on him/her.
