It’s pretty rare to find people who actually enjoy job interviews. In fact, job interviews truly strike fear into the hearts of some.
In this article, we present you with five tips to help you perform well in a job interview, and hopefully separate yourself from the candidate pack.
Forbes recently suggested keeping a motivational quotation in mind when attending a job interview.
What could be better than this one, from American author and activist Mary McCarthy: “We are the hero of our own story.”
Saying that to yourself in the waiting room is surely more useful than worrying about stumbling over your words?
“Looking the part” doesn’t necessarily mean dressing in your sharpest suit. It makes more sense to dress in a way that fits with the company ethos, and some companies are now far more casual than of old.
Whatever you wear, ensure you feel comfortable and that you are the right side of “smart.” It will boost your confidence, and help with first impressions.
Most interviewers will ask if there’s anything you’d like to know, and you won’t inspire them if their question is met with a blank impression.
One surefire way of alienating a potential employer is going into an interview without having done some homework on the company. Make sure you understand what the company does, and learn a little about its history and values. Good interviewers will check you’ve done this.
Don’t spend your interview staring at the floor or looking past your interviewer. In addition, if your interview is with a panel of people, make sure you share your eye contact amongst them. If you don’t engage them, you won’t make much of an impression.
