Panorama’s Guide to Acing an Interview

Panoramas+Guide+to+Acing+an+Interview
Ira Rodrigues

The interview is notably the one of the most important parts of the job application process, and if it doesn’t go smoothly it could cost a job. Hence, it is a good idea to prepare for the interview by focusing on questions that are commonly asked.

Q: Tell me about yourself.

A: Be honest, but brief! Make an introduction and share new information with the interviewer. Specifically, mention how being chosen for the job would benefit the workplace. Job interviewers look for people who are willing to work there and bring something new to the table.

Q: Why are you interested in this job?

A: Here’s a chance to impress the interviewer. Make sure to come prepared by checking out their website or learning about their business. Talk about how working at this job will help with future careers or opportunities. 

Q: Why should we hire you?

A: High schoolers often don’t have much work experience that they can draw on to answer this question, so use school experience. Talk about being a hard-working student, or mention skills picked up from high school. Don’t stress about this question, it’s just to evaluate the possible skills that a candidate for the job has.
