Ace the Interview

This handy guide can help to keep you on course during the interview process.

  1. Do your homework:Stay in the know on all-things Salesforce by reading the latest Salesforce Blog posts.
  2. Preparation is key:Get a good night’s sleep so you’ll be refreshed and alert for your interview.
    • Got a phone interview? Make sure you’re in a quiet area with internet, your resume, and the job description in front of you. Be ready to take notes (headphones can come in handy).
    • Coming onsite? Bring copies of your resume and something to take notes on. Make sure to look up the address beforehand and aim to arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow yourself some wiggle room. Plan to dress business casual. Think slacks and a button-down, not a t-shirt and flip-flops.
  3. Talk yourself up:Speak up.
    • Your strengths, experiences, goals, and values are important to them, and help them understand what makes you an outstanding candidate.
    • Let them know why you’re here. What about the company and the role excites you most?
    • Be ready to relate your skills back to the requirements in the job description and provide specific examples when talking about your past experiences to show that you have the qualifications necessary to thrive in the position.
  4. Ask questions:Interviewing is a two-way street, and they want you to learn more about them just as much as they want to learn more about you.
    • Research your interviewer’s background.
    • This will not only provide more context around your questions, it may also uncover common ground worth mentioning.
    • Ask questions about the specific role and team that you are interviewing for.
    • What is an average day like?
    • Who will I be working with most often?
  5. Be authentic:They want to meet the real you, so don’t just tell interviewers what you think they want to hear, rather emphasize what makes you unique.
