One of the most basic items is to research the firm where you are going
to interview, before you go there. Make sure you do your exploring and
find out when they were formed and the number of employees they have,
their base, turnover etc as it demonstrates that you have a wish to
become part of that team. So many people will not make an impression
because of lack of leg work in this key area. Listed are 5 top job
interview tips and things you should consider when you interview.
Know the company
The firm you are having an interview at could be researched and you
could find out essential information about them, such as by reading the
content on their site, researching their share value, finding out their
revenue and services they offer and what you think you could give to
their present setup. This is important as you can sell your strengths
into their current set up and get future employer to already consider
you an employee.
While being posed questions, be positive, make eye contact, and appear
enthusiastic and sit towards the edge of your seat. Your interviewer
will see that you are raring to go and engaging with them.
Arrive in the region of 10 minutes before time to allow for delays and
the unexpected issues that may arise. Turning up too early can suggest
a long wait so this could increase the nerves however!
One must always attend a job interview in appropriate, tidy clothing
such as a suit, tie and shirt and polished shoes. If you are not sure
what is needed, then enquire! Its most important that you call ahead of
time rather than giving a poor first impact.
Organise for impending questions you could be asked
Look at various websites and find for ‘difficult interview questions’
in order to give you an impression of what some mean interviewers could
pose! The major questions to think about answers to could be your main
attributes and disadvantages, where you want to be in three years, why
do you desire the job, what could you bring to the position and
introduce yourself. It is ideal to prepare answers to these questions
to avoid dithering when asked.
