Tips for a winning interview experience
The standard ways to prepare for an interview are pretty well known – make sure you know what the company does, the content on the company’s website, how your experience and skills match the role you’re applying for, etc. But we’ve put together a few extra tips that will help you prepare and hopefully give you a bit of an edge to stand out and land your dream job.
Research interview questions based on the job title or description
In addition to practicing how you’d answer traditional interview questions, Google interview questions specifically for the job title or description you applied for. Pay attention to both the hard and soft skills, experience and qualifications listed. You may find some unique questions that will help you prepare.
Go from interviewee to interviewer
Have some questions ready to ask during the interview as well. This is your chance to educate yourself on the role, understand the team and their goals, learn firsthand about our company culture, and find out any additional information that is important to you.
Be prepared to share a challenging experience and how you resolved it
Your resume and interview should cover your previous role(s), capabilities, successes, etc. – all the great stuff. But it’s also important to know how you’ve handled the not-so-great experiences such as a project that wasn’t as successful as you hoped, making a mistake, or conflict with a co-worker.
Promote your soft skills and show you’re a well-rounded candidate
While having the technical skills for a job is essential (also known as hard skills), soft skills that are more related to personality traits that are important as well. Great communication skills that show you care, curiosity that drives you to explore new possibilities, ability to work with a variety of personalities, and accountability are examples of important soft skills at Sabre.
Stay connected with your recruiter
Let your recruiter know how your interview experience is going and about your continued interest in the role. Your recruiter is your main point of contact during the interview process and is happy to provide as much guidance as possible.
