Lilly is a conservative organization, so dress accordingly. The interview will be organized in three phases: OPENING PHASE...QUESTION-RESPONSE PHASE, and the CLOSING PHASE
This includes three steps
I respect you as a person feeling that makes both interviewer and interview receptive. The initial one to four minutes will be the most important of the entire interview--their impact on its outcome cannot be overstated, because first impressions are difficult to erase. If you make a good first impression, you stand a better chance of being hired.
Make a good impression: be on time ...dress appropriately...be well prepared...appear confident and relax.
Verification of your name...purpose of the interview...what information they need
Interviewer aims to motivate you to give straightforward complete answers. She will say something like "I feel sure that you are as interested as we are in finding a position in which you will be most successful. To place you appropriately, we need accurate, detailed information from you, okay?”
Heart of interview. Carefully prepare. Outline information you wish to give your interviewer. Prepare a list of your strengths, areas of knowledge, and accomplishments. Anticipate possible questions and think through honest answers to each one.
You'll get a chance to ask questions. Thank the interviewer for time and assistance.
Types of questions to expect during the course of the interview:
A. Open-Ended question
“In your own words, evaluate your accomplishments in life."
"We hope to hire someone who will stay for at least three years. We know plans will change, but could you describe the sort of opportunity that could tempt you to leave sooner than this?
"Describe for me the ideal boss."
Hypothetical Open Question:
“On your first day of work, you arrive an hour late. How would you explain this and to whom?”
Direct or Specific Questions
Simple Yes or no or short answer
“Who recommended you to us?”
"What size company do you prefer? Large, medium or small?”
"We're looking for creative people here. What do you have to offer?
Try to relax and be yourself
If a question catches you off guard, don't rush unprepared into an answer. Think about your answer first.
If you don't know, say so
Don't be pressured into saying more than you want to say
Listen carefully to hypothetical open questions
