One thing is clear and that is that the job market has been moving very quickly in recent months. The unemployment rate has increased considerably, But little by little we see that new opportunities arrive and we must be prepared for the most feared moment: The job interview. 

In previous posts we recommend how you could prepare for an interviewToday, we will try to clarify the most recurring questions that candidates usually ask themselves.

1. Is it advisable to prepare it? 

If by preparing it you are thinking of studying a speech and releasing it to the interviewer, the answer is no. However, we do recommend that the days before, take a look at the corporate page of the company, so as not to go in blind, and assess whether the type of company a priori can fit with what you are looking for.

In addition, we also recommend that you make a self-reflection about what you have done previously and think about what you can contribute that can make you stand out from other candidates. Think about it and integrate it into the speech.

No, the interviewer is looking for get to know you in the workplace and see how you perform. Be calm and go to the interview thinking that it is going to be a conversation between people in order to find out if a position is for you.

3. Should we talk about salary in the first interview?

If the salary is known from the beginning, from our point of view, it is better meet him as soon as possible. This will save wasting time on some candidates and vice versa.

However, it is true that sometimes the position can change during the process, or it is still not clear what type of profile the company needs as a priority, so depending on the interested candidates, the salary could also change.

4. Do you have to wear a suit?

To answer this question, it is best that, as we have commented above, do a previous research work to know the type of company.

There are some in which it is necessary to wear a suit or certain clothing, since they have a dress code. However, in the others, adapt according to each one of them. 

5. Will they take the one with the most experience?

Negative. And if not, ask the senior talent. If they have called you to do the interview, they have seen something in you that they think can fit into the position, so have confidence in yourself and Go for it!
