Interviewing Skills (Job hunting) Hi Q Academy

Course details

What is an interview?

 An interview is a meeting between a job applicant and a representative of the company. The meeting comes about because the company had a job available. People applied for the job. The company needs to decide who to hire.

The interview is also your opportunity to look at the company. You get to ask questions about the company’s business. It is your opportunity to see if the company suits you.

 In the 1800’s when a company needed workers, they would put a sign outside the building. If the sign read: “Tall Men Needed”, there would be no reason for you to apply if you didn’t reach the mark on the door.,

 If you owned a mill and needed a man to work with the grinding stones, the interview would consist of your examination of the applicant’s hands. The hand that worked the stones would be rough and would have stone embedded in it. Smooth hands would tell you that the applicant did not know how to do the job.

Today, an interview is still a visual inspection and usually includes a pre-employment drug screen.
