Tips for successful Interview
1-Get to know Egyptian Steel
- Our website is the ideal place to learn who we are and what we stand for. Make sure you fully explore it fully by reading about us in the news and speaking to people you know who work in the steel industry. The more you know about us, the better your interview will go.
2- Learn as much as you can about the industry
- Study the industry;- find out who our competitors are and what makes Egyptian Steel unique.
- If you have spent some time working or studying outside of steel industry, devote a good deal of time to refreshing your knowledge.
3- Practice makes perfect
- Hold mock interviews with your family, peers, professors, and professional mentors. Have them come up with a number of questions to ask you, but also write questions for yourself. Imagining yourself as your own interviewer helps you understand what we are looking for when we interview candidates. It may even be beneficial to role-play that you are the interviewer, particularly with your peers.
- Review the job description and requirements.
- Review your application materials and be prepared to discuss any detail therein.
- Dress in business attire.
- Bring extra copies of your application materials.
- Allow plenty of time to get to your interview.
5- In the Interview
- The interview is your opportunity to explain why you are uniquely qualified for the position in question.
- Take full advantage of this opportunity to demonstrate not only your qualifications but also your communication skills.
- Answer the interviewer’s questions as completely and accurately as possible. Avoid the temptation to be immodest or exaggerate your qualifications and experiences – it is usually more obvious than you may think.
