Organization & Company Research Resources
When you're preparing for a job interview, it pays to do your research. Use the resources here to learn about an organization's history, business, and culture. Once you have a good understanding of what the company's about, formulate a list of questions to ask during your interview. This will show your interviewer that you're genuinely interested in the job and give you a deeper understanding of what to expect if you're hired.
Common Interview Questions
Interviews can vary from one industry to another. Remember, interviewers are trying to assess your experience and your fit for a specific position, so depending on the position, your questions will vary greatly. This is a small sample of questions designed to help you understand the kind of field-specific questions you might be asked.
- What role do you usually take on when working as part of a team?
- What leadership roles have you had in the past?
- Why do you want to work in this field/at this company?
- Discuss a time you faced/worked in a high pressure environment and how you handled it.
- How do you prioritize projects and tasks when scheduling your time? Give me some examples.
- What have you accomplished that shows your initiative and willingness to work?
- Avoid the use of phrases such as “responsibilities included” or “duties included.” Employers want to hear about your accomplishments, not how well you carried out your assigned duties.
- Painstakingly proofread your resume for typos, misspellings, and grammatical errors. Even small mistakes can lead a potential employer to believe that you might not make a very careful or conscientious employee.
- Tailor your resume for each job. Make sure the accomplishments you’ve highlighted match the specific skills the employer is looking for. Potential employers will not take the time to figure out why you might be a match; your resume must make it clear for them.
- Quantify your achievements in terms of percentages, dollar amounts, or time frames to make your accomplishments more concrete. Employers are less interested in titles and duties and more interested in previous accomplishments.
- Include your finance or accounting industry certifications and licenses, such as CPA, CFA, and Series 7, 63, and/or 64.
