If you have been invited to an interview, the assumption is that you are able to do the job. However, too often job seekers exaggerate their skills, making it necessary for employers to ask a few questions that will confirm or elaborate on your experience, and your ability to do the job.
This may seem obvious, but, highly qualified employees often do not show initiative, enthusiasm, or creativity when faced with problems to solve or routine tasks to perform. Your use of examples when answering questions helps your previous experience come alive, and demonstrates that you take pride in your work and will take responsibility to increase quality, ensure customer satisfaction, meet deadlines, etc.
No matter how technically qualified you may be for a position, fitting in to the organization’s culture is even more important. Employers will take a chance on a less qualified candidate, overlooking someone who “can do the job” in favour of someone who demonstrates enthusiasm for learning – “will do the job” – and who is excited about the opportunity and will fit with the team – “want to do the job”.
