IT staffing firms have a laundry list of qualities they look for in an IT consultant, but one of the most important is ability and willingness to prepare for IT job interviews. Technical recruiters encounter a myriad of IT contractors who do not seem to follow the major steps in prepare for interviews. This is shocking because these steps are simple, take very little time, and pretty intuitive.
The first thing recruiting firms would prefer that IT professionals do to prepare for a job interview is to research the company. This can be done quickly by checking out their website and/or general presence on the web. Secondly, IT staffing agencies suggest that IT job candidates read, memorize, and seriously think about the job description. IT recruiting agencies want to send in candidates who have deeply considered what IT jobs require and how the candidates can meet those requirements. Lastly, IT staffing companies want their IT consultants to practice answering and asking standard interview questions. Encountering these questions for the first time, or the first time in a long time, does not look good for the candidate or the IT recruiting agencies they represent. Following each of these steps will definitely guarantee at success—if not in getting the job, at least in convincing IT recruiting companies that you are a great person to work with.
