Is it hard for you to get a job or with the economic depression, or simply accept this as a reality? Do you usually leave interviews with a god awful feeling? Some people tend to go through interview without preparation and this can lead to disastrous results. If you really want to win your desired job, you should give an extra effort. By being prepared it will help eliminate or at least lessen your nervousness. Here are some tips for winning a job interview:
1. As an old saying says “First impressions last” and it is true. Prepare your best suit or attire, get ready with your coolest necktie, and add some cufflinks to make you standout. The moment that you step inside the interview room, the first thing that the employer will notice is your outfit and the way you carry it. Watch your posture, never slouch, and dress smart. Be sure to turn-off your cellular phone and even if it rings (if you forgot to turn it off), ignore it!
2. Do your research. You should plan ahead, study the company and the position that you are aspiring for. Review your previous career and study on how you can make it an advantage for the company needs.
3. Practice your interview. Write down the possible question that the employer will ask, usual questions like “What are your best qualities?” or “Give me the reasons why should we choose you?”. If it is possible have someone to help you through question and answer. Hand him/her the questions and do a role playing of an actual interview. Make sure to highlight all of your positive qualities and achievements.
4. Never be late. Be there early, you can never expect when a heavy traffic would suddenly come up. Your first day is going to be you’re first impression. But if the situation is really bad and you are really going to be late, show courteousness by giving them a call.
5. Avoid sharing bad comments from your previous employer. It will give your personality a negative feedback.
6. Never tell a lie – just be the best of what you are.
7. Get ready with at least one or two questions. When you ask questions, it will deliver a message to the employer that you are interested and excited about the job. An employer would like to hire someone who looks excited and eager to be part of their company.
8. Maintain eye contact with the employer and listen carefully. It will show your sincerity and your interest to the job.
9. Maintain a positive attitude. Never tell an employer “Please I need a job” or”This is my 110th interview please hire me” and the worst “I need money badly”. Don’t show that you are desperate. Instead tell them about yourself, especially your skills and achievements. This will give a positive atmosphere throughout the interview.
10. When you are asked about previous struggles, tell them on how you cope up and how you used them to make you a better person.
After the interview, never forget to say your thanks for the time the employer spent to you. Remember to wear something that the employer would remember, like an interesting necktie or an eye-catching pair of cufflinks. It would make you stand-out from the rest. And lastly just relax and just be the best of what you can be.
