HR Execs Tell How to Prepare for a Job Interview

Our Career Breakfast panelists had a lot more to offer than cookie-cutter advice about preparing for a job interview. If you missed our live broadcast, we’ve rounded up a few key tips and embedded the full video below.

Lars Schmidt, NPR’s talent acquisition leader, advised candidates to Google themselves to fully understand what the company may know about you. “You don’t want to be derailed by a question you’re not prepared for.”

Mediabistro VP of education and events Carmen Scheidel reminded viewers that the interview itself is a form of research, essentially a great opportunity to decide if the company culture is something that you can commit your career to.

Finally, HR pro Laurie Ruettimann advised job seekers to remain neutral — in both look and odor. That means no hot pink skirts or dumping on cologne. “You want to be memorable for your knowledge, skills and abilities, not for your wardrobe or how you smell.”
