How to Ace a Job Interview – Tips and Tricks
So here it is, ready for the big interview. What do you do? How do you prepare? Do not fear, my friend, the answers are here!
The first and perhaps most important thing you can do for an interview is to learn about the company and prepare yourself for some common interview questions. You want to be able to respond well to the interviewer if you ask, "Why do you want to work here?"
Investigate a bit about the business you are trying to enter, find out what your job would involve on a day-to-day basis. Find out what skills you need. Basically, you want to learn everything you can learn about the job before the interview.
When the time comes for the interview, make sure arrives early . It's not too early, mind you: five to ten minutes is enough. Go by the old saying of the Army: "Early arrives on time, arrives on time". Be sure to bring with you a copy of your resume along with another sheet of paper with some references on it (3-5 is enough).
Something else you would like to bring is a nice pen . You can not use it, but it always looks good if you have a pencil on hand. That said, do not hang it from your shirt pocket or hide it behind your ear. You only have one ready to retire if you need it. Nothing too flashy, either. I recommend something along the pilot Pilot G-2 07: simple, but more beautiful than a normal pen. He wants something that shows he's serious.
It is important that ask questions during an interview. This shows your interest in the job. Do not ask anything of what you may have and you should have discovered it on your own, that's why you've started to research the company! This is the time for questions such as "What is the work atmosphere like?"
Finally, keep calm ! I know you try to impress someone, but do not worry. Be yourself: if you can relax and calmly demonstrate that you are the best person for the job, it will be fine.
To recap, make sure you know the company and prepare yourself for some common questions. Arrive a little early and be sure to bring an additional resume, reference sheet and a ballpoint pen. Ask good questions, stay calm and continue!
