JOB INTERVIEW TIPS THAT WILL GET YOU HIRED
It takes much more than simply searching for a list of typical interview questions to adequately prepare for an interview. You need to make a fantastic first impression, be knowledgeable about the business, and its goal, and of course, clearly articulate why you’d be a wonderful hire for this position. Therefore, we’ve put together a list of our greatest pre-interview advice ever to aid in your preparation.
How thoroughly you prepare will have a big impact on how well you do in an interview. Don’t wait until the last minute to do this. Prior to the interview, concentrate your research on the following Interview Tips:
- Employer: you must demonstrate that you have a thorough understanding of the industry. What industry does it work in? What significant projects has it lately finished? What are the morals and culture there? This level of expertise shows sincere curiosity.
- Role: Reread the job description to refresh your recall of how your abilities and credentials relate to the position. If you filled out an application form, look it over again. You must be able to articulate your career goals, demonstrate your comprehension of the position, and, most crucially, justify your selection as the best applicant to the company.
- Interview panel: learn who’s going to be interviewing you. This information could be included in the email that invites you to the interview. To learn more about their qualifications and interests in the workplace, consult LinkedIn and the ‘About us’ page of the business website. This might facilitate a connection with your interviewers and help you make a good first impression.
- Questions: prepare some inquiries you’d want to ask the interviewer as well as how you’ll respond to typical interview questions.
4 ways to make a good impression
Consider how you may present yourself favourably as you get ready for the interview:
- Punctuality: Try your best to appear early because arriving late will make you more stressed out and will give the company a terrible first impression.
- Be positive: Treat everyone you see professionally before or after the interview. When asked questions during the interview, give positive answers, show enthusiasm for the position, and refrain from bashing your former employers or professors.
- Body language: Shake your interviewer(s) hands firmly both before and after the interview. Once seated, maintain a straight posture without slouching or leaning on the desk. Keep your eyes open and smile regularly throughout the interview.
- Clarity: Provide complete and succinct responses to all questions, highlighting your most pertinent qualifications, accomplishments, and experiences. It’s fine to take a moment to gather your thoughts before responding to a challenging question, or to ask for clarification if you’re not sure what the question means. Try not to speak too hastily when responding.
