4 KEY TIPS FOR PASSING THE IT (INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY) MANAGER INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – The IT Manager interview will be divided up into a combination or motivational and behavioral interview questions. Motivational questions will be aimed at assessing your motivations for the role, and also your knowledge of the organization, whereas behavioural interview questions, will assess your prior experience, knowledge and expertise to be able to perform the role of an IT Manager competently.

TIP #2 – When responding to the behavioural/competency-type questions, we recommend you structure each answer using the format Situation, Task, Action and Result. By following this method, which is more commonly referred to as the STAR technique, it will ensure you provide the interview panel with evidence-based answers to the scenario-type questions put forward at the interview.

TIP #3 – During your preparation for the IT Manager interview, we recommend you focus your time concentrating on the following 3 areas: (i) your IT technical knowledge in relation to the role you are applying for, (ii) your ability to lead and manage a team of IT workers towards achieving the company goals and objectives, and finally, (iii) the interpersonal skills you possess that will make you attractive to the hiring manager or senior management team who are responsible for your appointment.
