IT recruiters and IT staffing firms always do their best to prep IT consultants for job interviews, but there are some things IT contractors are expected to know before they interview for IT jobs. Here are a few things any IT professional should know before they interview with an IT manager:
1. Show interest in the particular job you’re interviewing for. Do no give a longer career trajectory in which this job is just a stepping stone. Do not suggest that you don’t know what you want to do with your career, but you think this job works well for now. Do not ask about how quickly you can be promoted from this job. The interviewer wants to know you want this job and that you’re excited about it.
2. Don’t ask about the hours or the perks. These are things to discuss if you’re given a job offer. You can ask about what a typical day looks like, but you want to give the impression you’re more concerned about the work and expectations rather than when you can jet out of the office every day.
3. Research the company. Then research them again and again and again. Try to focus on what information might be relevant to the particular department you’re interviewing for.
