How to impress your interviewer
1-Give a positive initial impression by following the essential basics of interview
-Reach the place of meeting 15 minutes prior to the assumed appointment.
-Dress professionally unless you’re asked to wear a certain dress-code (no jeans, no casual outfits).
-Be decent with whomever you meet within the working place.
-Give your interviewer a firm handshake (make sure your handshake isn’t flimsy or sweaty) and look at his/her eye when speaking.
Put in your mind that among the stack of resumes they received; you attracted them to know you better and your qualifications and abilities as well.
Show yourself as an interesting sociable employee by discussing with your employer shortly away from career life topics. Smile and be friendly.
Deal with this opportunity as your only chance to market yourself to the recruiter.
5-Tell the advantages you’ll give not what you’ll take
When your employer asks you (why are you interested in the job and company?), your answer should be demonstrating the way you’ll be benefitting the company and the job vacancy not what you’ll be taking from them. Stay away from answers like (It’s a great learning opportunity to me) or (I’m currently in a part-time job and I want a full-time one).
6-Do your Homework (Pre-interview preparation)
-Research the company’s history.
-Research the industry from large aspects (Macro trends, competitors, and their outstanding unique performance).
Speaking confidently about these points will show your interest to working in the company.
7-Rest and eat the night before
Being nervous before an interview is a natural phenomenon, whereas hyper-nervousness that distracts your sleeping is not. You’ll end up being exhausted in front of the interviewer which will lead to adverse effects. Also, having a healthy nutritious breakfast before heading to the interview will increase your concentration.
8-Send a Thank You Note
Although many people still don’t do this, this part is very essential and stand between you and your dream job.
It’s essential to have a number of questions to be asked to your employer; such as:-
- What do you consider to be the ideal back-ground for this position?
- What are some of the significant challenges?
- Do you have any concerns that I need to clear up in order to be the top candidate?
- What’s the most important thing I can do to help within the first 90 days of my employment?s
