A new “PR” plan for a successful interview

July 9th, 2011 by lewis

I couple years ago, I worked at Sun Microsystems (now part of Oracle). Going through some old materials from their career center, I found this helpful “PR” plan to preparing for the interview:

Use the PR plan to achieve a successful interview:

  • PRedict
  • PRepare
  • PRactice

Predict what the job responsibilities might be, who will be interviewing you, and possible interview questions and situations.

Prepare stories and responses to possible questions and scenarios. Think of resources that are available to you such as web for information, people who know about the job, annual reports, etc. Review your interview stories prior to the interview.

Practice your responses to interview questions. Your responses should be organized, convey a positive attitude, and communicate your value-add.
