If you’re preparing for interviews for IT jobs, you’ve probably practiced answering questions with a friend or family member. This is a good start, but there’s another way to practice for your interviews so that you impress your interviewer (and your IT recruiters and IT staffing companies!). Try switching roles for a bit and play the interviewer.
How do you do this? Your technical recruiters and IT staffing agencies can give you a basic idea of what questions your interviewer will ask. It’s also worth it to think about you’d want to know if you were hiring for this position. As you practice from the interviewer role, you’ll force yourself to think about what kind of experience, skills, and personality traits your interviewer (and your IT recruiting agencies and IT staffing firms) want you to highlight. You can think about what the ideal candidate would sound like. Take that perspective with you to the interview—even if you don’t get the job, you’re bound to leave a lasting impression on your interviewers (and make your IT recruiting companies eager to continue to work with you!).
