How to Prepare for a Job Interview at the Last Minute

Oh no – you forgot that your job interview is tomorrow morning! Now, you’ll never have time to prepare!

At CRG, we’re a recruiting, staffing and consulting firm, and we’ll do everything we can to help you find the job of your dreams. We offer IT consulting positions in High Point, NC, as well as other positions in other local areas. Here are a few tips on how to prepare for a job interview at the last minute, and make it seem like you’ve been preparing for weeks.

1. Go online – preferably to the company’s website – Thank goodness for the internet. You can find out just about anything on there. Whether you’re pressed for time or not, we recommend going to the company’s website and learning as much as you can about them. First, look at the job description that you’re applying for, and then find out about the company itself. What do they do? How long have they been in business? Have they won any awards lately?

2. Prepare some stories to tell – And by stories, we mean to paint a verbal picture of something good you’ve done in your past work or school history. The best way to answer an interview question is a story that resonates with the interviewer. To prepare, write down and memorize three stories of achievement that will help outshine the other job applicants.

3. Make sure you have the basics – Do you know where you’re going and how to get there? Do you have a clean outfit picked out? Make sure you have the basics down before you set off. Also, if it’s still the night before, go to bed early and get a good night’s sleep.

Those are three of the ways you can prepare for your upcoming job interview at the last minute.
