10 Essential Things to Know Before Interviewing at SeamlessDocs (or anywhere really)
October 3, 2018
We know things don’t always go as planned when preparing for an interview, but if you follow these guidelines you’re sure to leave us wanting more.
- Know who’s interviewing you and do your research. Know their role and a little bit about them before interviewing. You never know, you might share an alma mater or know the same people.
- If it’s a phone interview, make sure you have good phone service and a quiet place to talk. After all, what’s the point of interviewing if the interviewer can’t hear you?
- Prepare questions ahead of time. This is often something that is overlooked, but preparing relevant questions beforehand shows your eagerness to learn about the company and job.
- Be courteous and make sure you send a professional follow up email. The simpler the better. Make sure you get the contact info of every person that interviews you.
- Take a deep breath before answering questions. We understand that interviews can be nerve wracking; we guarantee the interviewer will appreciate a well thought out answer over anything. Also, don’t be scared to say you don’t know an answer!
- Leverage your experience when answering questions. Using specific examples from your current and past jobs can make all the difference in answering questions.
- When arriving on-site for an interview, look the part. Here at SeamlessDocs, we have a casual environment so a suit and tie isn’t required or expected. We want you to be comfortable but professional. That said, wear whatever makes you feel best!
- Read the job posting and know exactly what the interviewer is looking for. Drawing from your past experiences, highlight examples that illustrate how well suited you are for the job you applied for.
- Don’t be late. We get it; trains can be unreliable at times but don’t let it affect your punctuality.
- Bring a copy of your resume and any other materials that demonstrate your abilities. We will obviously have a copy but you will be meeting with multiple people so it can be nice to have one to provide to a new person that comes into the room.
