I am sure you know ten times as much as I do about network engineering. And you are probably ready to answer the technical questions in your interview.
But let me tell you something: Good answers to technical questions is just one of four things you will need, if you want to ace your interview, and get a job.
What are the other three things?
- Good answers to screening (personal) interview questions – such as what motivates you, what are your strengths, why do you want to leave your present job, how would your friends describe you, why should we hire you, etc.
- Good answers to behavioral interview questions – such as describe a conflict you had with another person, describe a time you felt pressure in work, describe a time you struggled to communicate a technical issue to someone without a technical background, etc.
- Ability to impress your interviewers, and win them over.
Unless you convince them that you have the right personality for the job (with your answers to screening questions), right attitude to work and life (with your answers to behavioral questions), and unless they feel great with you in an interview (an ability to win them over), they will hire someone else for the job.
Focus on things you can do well
I know that you do not like to bother with screening and behavioral questions. You would likely prefer to skip the entire interview. After all, you have the technical skills–and that’s what matters for the job, so why wasting time with anything else?
Well, you are right. But that’s just not how it work in an interview…. In an interview, they consider many things, and your technical skills are just one of the deciding factors. But how to prepare for the rest?
You can learn how to ace your interview – in just a couple of hours, or in a few days – the choice is yours
Honestly, if you have enough time, can work with information, and can tell a good interview answer from a poor one (which is not easy), you can find online everything you need to know to master screening and behavioral questions, and the art of winning your interviewers over. Two or three days of quality research and learning will do the trick.
But if you do not have the time, or are not sure how to tell a great interview answer from a poor one, or if you simply prefer someone with ten years of recruiting and interviewing experience to tell you all of that, you may consider purchasing my interview guide that consists in two things:
- An audio recording I Will Get a Job – 56 minutes, mp3, instant download. I will teach you the winning interview strategies, you will learn how to win your interviewers over.
- An eBook, Interview Success Guide – 36 pages long, .pdf format, instant download. I will show you analysis and great answers to thirty most common screening and behavioral interview questions.
So there you have it. You have the technical skills, and with my package you will easily learn the rest of things you need to know to succeed in your interview.
Why should you trust me?
First of all, you do not have to trust me. I offer a risk free 60 days money back guarantee on everything I sell online, and I use PayPal to process the transactions (if you use PayPal, you know about their buyer’s protection policy, so you have another guarantee with them).
If you buy the guide and do not like it, it is just a question of a few clicks to get your money back….
Anyway, I can tell you a little bit about myself. I’ve been in recruitment business since 2008, I led more than 1,000 job interviews (many of them with engineers), I’ve founded (or co founded) more than 20 websites in career advice and job interview niche (most famous one is InterviewPenguin.com), and I’ve been studying this art of acing an interview (as well as an art of hiring the right employees) ever since I had my first experience with it, as a job seeker.
Last but not least, I wrote the content of this website, so reading it you can likely tell if I know something about acing an interview or not.
I consider it my mission to help the job seekers, with simple to understand yet professional advice. Today, I try to help you in your efforts to get a job.
Without too much of talking (I’ve been talking much already), see below the interview package I have prepared for you:

See yourself what the fellow engineers think about it:
I tried to kick start my career in network engineering, but failed in every interview. Just after purchasing your guide I understood that I had talked like an engineer, but I had not presented myself as one.
I completely changed my attitude to interviews, and I got a job in an enterprise network consultancy firm. Thank you Matthew!
I had great qualification, and lot of successful projects under my belt. However, they always screened me out in an interview. I decided to purchase your interview guide, since I had no idea how to turn my fortunes around.
Finally I learned how to answer their non-technical questions. And that was the part of a puzzle I was missing. Long story short, I got a job in my very next interview. Lenny Leith
It took me a couple of days to admit all mistakes I had made in my past interviews. Your interview package was a real eye opener for me. Thank you for helping me to get a job of an engineer, after being unemployed for more than three years.
Sample from the eBook – Do not buy the pig in a poke
I do not want you to walk in the dark, or buy something you are unsure about. See the sample from the eBook (the 2nd part of the interview package) below.
Question 1: Can you tell me something about yourself?
Hint: Often the very first question, it helps the HR managers to get a basic idea of your communication skills, motivation, and interests.
It is also an ice breaker, and a good answer should help you to feel more relaxed in an interview.
The interviewers do not ask about your education, experience, personal life, or anything else in particular—you can choose what you say to introduce yourself.
However, you should remember that your choice reflects what matters to you the most. In a job interview, it should be your education, working experience, and skills, simply things that are relevant for the employer.
You can mention one or two hobbies, or something from your personal life, just to show them that you are human, and have a life outside of work.
Considering that it is only the first question, try to answer briefly. Mention the most relevant things, speak with enthusiasm. If they want details, they will ask.
I am Mario, 25 years old, and I have just finished my Masters in Economy. I enjoy team work, and I am looking for my first job, ideally in a big company. I want to learn, and meet like-minded people in work. In my free time I like to run, read, and meet with friends. I try to have positive outlook of life, and take everything that comes my way as an opportunity to become a better person.
I am Michaela, and I have worked as a secretary before my maternity leave. Now, returning to work, I am looking for office manager position, or a similar job. I try my best to combine the role of a mother and the role of an employee, which is not always easy, but I enjoy the process. If I have some free time, I like to cook, read, and basically enjoy the time with my daughter.
My name is Ron, and I am a programmer. I love designing new games and I look for a job that will allow me to design them. I am creative, and I also like to draw. I have a family, my children attend college, and in my free time, which is typically only on weekends, I enjoy gardening and wandering in the nature. Though in my fifties, I still believe I have something to offer for my employer, and I constantly work on improving my programming skills.
Question 24: Describe a time when you struggled with motivation in job (it was repetitive, you did not enjoy your duties, there was no work to do, etc). How did you overcome the crisis of motivation?
Hint: Interviewers try to understand your attitude. Do you mind if the work is repetitive? Do you get bored easily? Do you proactively look for something to do, or do you always wait for an order from your boss?
Many jobs are repetitive, and the employees carry out the same tasks day after day, month after month. If you apply for such a job, you should say that you actually prefer routine, and that you do not find repetitive jobs boring.
Alternatively you can say that you were always busy, that you never felt like there wasn’t anything to do in your job. You should adjust your answer to this question to your job application. Regardless of the job you try to get, however, you should try to convince them that you do not lose your motivation quickly, and often.
I have worked as a cashier before, which is an extremely repetitive job. Though I sometimes found my day boring, I do not think that the customers noticed that. I knew how to act, what was expected from me in the job, and I understood why I woke up every morning. Most jobs are repetitive, but I believe that people who know why they work, who have some goals, don’t struggle with their motivation often.
We had so much work to do in my last job. I often stayed in the office for ten hours, and I sometimes even worked on Saturdays. That was actually one of the reasons why I left them, because I was looking for a better life-work balance. Honestly, I have never felt bored in my job, as there was always something to do.
This is my first job application, so I am yet to experience the crisis of motivation. I will always try to have some goals to find motivation and to work hard, even if the job is boring, or if I do not feel like working on a given day. But I applied for this job because I really like the job description. It resonates with my values, and I believe that I will find it motivating for a long time.
