Interview Tips - Nicolás Fernández | IE Alumni

For Alumni by Alumni: Interview Tips

Global Alumni Relations caught up with Nicolás Fernández, a Spanish BBA graduate who developed the following list when he prepared for his interviews.

Nicolás shared his best tips when preparing for an interview in order to help other students and alumni who are about to embark on the interview process. His hope is to provide readers with practical advice that is needed to succeed.

1) Do your background research: Know the specifics of the company: Founders, History, CEO, values, Mission & Vision statements, revenue, profit, share of the market, biggest challenges, biggest opportunities you see, and everything you can do your research about.

2) Use your network connections: Reach out to people that are already working for the company that came from IE University/Business School and ask them questions you might have and share tips if they have any.

3) There are a few questions that you might get asked while in an interview. Some of them are the following: Why do you want to work in this specific company, and more importantly in this role? There are thousands of positions to apply, why this one? – Please, have a prepared answer and focus on company values and the skills that you have and that will create value for the company.
