Here are some tips for you to prepare for the final round job interview.
Before heading to the final round of interview, you should understand that there are several things to be evaluated. The better you prepare for these areas, the larger chance you will land the job smoothly.

Read the mission statement carefully and think about how you can apply it to your personal career goals. Prepare to speak about these topic during your final interview.
2. Some quick tips.
During the final job interview, the interviewer are seeking to find a fatal flaw from candidates, for example, if you state that you are not a good self-starter, the company might hesitate to hire you since the position requires you to work with very little supervision. Thus, before the interview, you should go through each area thoroughly and address with the corresponding concerns.
However, you have already passed the first round or even second round of interview, which indicates you qualifications are sufficient. Your potential employers are just looking for something within you to make them feel that you are the right one to be hired. You should know that the interviewer likes you since you made it to the final interview, and now it is just a matter of giving them a bit more reasons to make the decision.
A first round job interview may be focused on broad aspects while in the contrary, the final round interview includes questions about more specific knowledge about both the organization and the industry as a whole. Hence, you will need to be prepared with the help of newspaper, magazines and other media to keep informed about the industry trends.
In addition to answer questions from the interviewer, you can also ask proper questions of your own during the final job interview. During the first interview you may want to ask something like the types of project you will work on, the size of team you will be in or the general goals of the position, while in the final job interview, you need to focus on more specific questions related to your career path. Some good questions are how my performance is measured if I’m hired, is there room for advancement at this position, etc. Avoid discussing items like benefits and compensation specifically, and these details can be discussed once the company offers you the job and before you accept the position.
