In this episode, Shellee and Interview discuss:

  • Three things about yourself 
  • Anticipating their concerns 
  • Asking genuine questions 
  • Backing up your claims 

Key Takeaways:

  • Think about three things that you want the interviewer to know about you by the end of the interview. Think about your core values, accomplishments, gifts and talents. 
  • Anticipate what would be the interviewer’s concern and answer it before it even becomes a concern. 
  • Ask a genuine question, don’t worry about whether they’ll be able to answer it or not – what’s important is that you’re showing an interest in that area. Also, read the school newspaper and discuss or ask about  some issues or hot topics from there. 
  • When letting them know who you are, back up your claims with some proof. Instead of saying you’re patient, say “my friends/siblings would say that I’m patient” or you could tell an instance where you showed that value.
