I just received a call and I have a phone interview on friday (i am on the other side of the country for school). Its for an accounting internship, working with the controller.
I've already looked up the company on glassdoor, what other resources can I use to prepare?
Should I just write out my answers to their most asked questions? I'll be trying to form my answers with the STAR approach.
Ay nigga I gotchu. Here are some primo questions that you should ask when they ask "have any questions"
Can you tell me a typical day on the job?
What do you like most about the job?
Can you tell me about the projects I'll be working on?
How would you define success in the position.
And then make sure you thank them in a follow up email for the interview.
Also don't wash your asshole for good luck. Gives you that sweaty crack sense of confidence.
Another few good questions are
"What are the best and worst parts about working for this company?"
"If you could change a few things at this company, what would they be?"
"Do you enjoy your job/working for this company?"(any answer/hesitation other than an immediate "Yes" is a sign that it's not such a good place to work)
Maybe leave out the more pressuring questions like "What do you hate the most here?", seems a bit bad to be so negative and perhaps putting light on the company's bad sides before you even get hired.
Google common entry level interview questions for the job you're interviewing for.
They won't be an exact match with what you will get asked, but it will get you thinking about the type of questions.
When it comes time, just relax. not too much coffee. deep breaths. and you'll do fine.
