How To Have A Great Job Interview

You will want to make the best impression of all when you have a job interview – after all; you do not get a second chance to make a first impression. When you are going for a job interview, this is your one chance to shine. You will want to make the best impression possible. How do you go about this? 

Take the following tips when you go for your next job interview so that you can make a positive impression and please your prospective employer as well as get that job:    

Dress for success

Ensure that you are wearing your best clothes when you go for a job interview. You should wear a shirt and tie if you are a man and a woman’s suit for a woman with low heels and stockings. Although most companies go for business casual nowadays, you do want to dress for success when you go for the job interview to land the job. 

Talk positively about your past jobs

Employers will most likely ask you about your past job experiences. Make sure that you talk positively about any experiences you might have had when working. You should speak positively about them even if they were unpleasant experiences. Never talk bad about a past job or a past employer as it looks bad for you. 

Answer questions straightforward

If you are asked a question that you do not understand, ask the interviewer to repeat the question and then answer in a straightforward manner. Job interviewers sometimes are vague with their questioning. If you answer questions straightforwardly and ask them to clarify what you do not understand, you have a better chance of giving a well-informed and intelligent answer. 

Remember your manners

Be sure to sit up straight and look the interviewer in the eye when you talk. Do not slouch, mumble your answers or look to the floor. Remember your manners when you are in a job interview, including thanking the interviewer for taking the time to speak to you. 

Toot your own horn

Never tell an employer anything negative about yourself. The interview is the time to toot your own horn and loudly. While self-deprecating may be charming at a party, it can turn off a prospective employer. Do not brag, but be very detailed about your accomplishments, and do not be afraid to list them. 

Be confident, well-groomed, informative, and charming, and you are sure to ace that job interview. 

Best of luck!!
