You have managed to get an employer’s attention with your resume and you are now being called to a job interview? Great! This crucial meeting must be well prepared to maximize your chances of success.
In the job search process, the interview is a crucial step. It allows the employer to check if you have the qualifications to perform the duties of the position in question. First, make sure you are familiar with the company and the duties of the position before going to the interview. What is the business sector of the company? What is the reputation of the company? What skills are required to get the job? Schedule an additional copy of your resume and print a reference sheet to anticipate the employer’s request.
Prepare for questions
Several interview questions have become classics. Make sure you are well prepared to answer them. Tell me about yourself. What makes you an ideal candidate for the job? What are your strengths and weaknesses? Where do you see yourself in five years? Think about the difficulties you have encountered in your previous jobs and prepare to describe how you overcame them and what you learned from them.
It is important to always positively conclude each question. For example, when you talk about your flaws, take the trouble to explain how you manage this weakness.
Look good in an interview
Once the day I (for interview) has arrived, heal your appearance. It is appropriate to dress in a professional manner, regardless of the type of job for which you are applying. Arrive five to ten minutes in advance. Once there, close your cell so you do not have to be bothered by a call. Pay close attention to your body language. Avoid playing with your hair or jewelry. Adopt a natural posture and do not cross your arms.
It is normal to feel nervous, but trust yourself. If you were invited to this job interview, it’s for a good reason: you have potential. Good interview!
