Almost every interview follows a basic pattern with the person conducting the interview trying to determine your strengths and weaknesses.
You’ll want to:
- Talk about your strengths in terms of teamwork and projects you are proud to have worked on.
- Project strength of character and strong work ethics (ie: goal oriented, flexible, committed, persistent, self-motivated, ambitious, hardworking, finish projects on time and on budget, good listener, dedicated, intelligent, multi-tasking, work-well under pressure).
- Address the interviewer’s chief concerns (ie: if an HR Manager conducts the interview you might want to emphasize your interpersonal skills. On the other hand, if you are interviewed by a Technical Manager you might want to emphasize your technical skills).
