Some of the best job interview tips to help you get that job – words Al Woods

I think it’s safe to say that we all get nervous for different reasons. However, one of the most nerve wracking moments that you can face is definitely a job interview.

Preparing yourself for a possible job hire is not the easiest thing to do, but it is probably one of the most important steps you can take before making your way into the interviewer’s office.

If you are searching for possible vacancies and applying to those that seem to fit your profile, you may need some advices for the next phase. And if you already have an interview coming up, first of all congratulations! Secondly, here are some of our best job interview tips will ease your nerves, and some common mistakes to avoid!

 

Learn about the company

Once you get the callback for an interview, one of the next steps you need to take is reading up on the company you applied for. Not only will you learn more about the job you might possibly get, but you will also be prepared for any question your interviewer might ask you. And other than being able to answer questions, when you search for possible job offers, looking at the company that’s listing them is not bad either. This will help you with those tough interview questions and answers. The more you’re informed, the better your decisions, impressions, and interviews will be!

No distractions

An important, even necessary detail you must remember before your next interview is avoiding every type of distraction possible. This will really help your job interview preparation. Two of the main distractions you should focus on keeping at bay are your phone, and drinks. The latter you may be confused by, but think about how distracting it would be for you to meet your employer with a drink in hand and sip it while you converse; not to mention the possibility of spilling it on yourself, or the employer. And the phone distraction you already know about – there’s nothing worse for an employer see you distracted by the buzzing or ringing of your phone.

Your arrival time

This should be rule #1 for any type of work commitment you are part of, but on the day of your interview it’s definitely the most important. Not only should you arrive on time to the meeting, but getting there early is also a good idea. You will impress the employer, and it will give you more time to relax before you start the interview. Bring something to read as you may have to wait before you start the interview, or anything that will help you keep it together and focus on showing how worthy of the position you are!

Dressing appropriately

Please, please don’t leave your outfit picking to the last moment. It may not sem so, but the way you dress for your interview will go a long way. I’m not saying you need to go all out on the outfit, but paying attention to what you wear is more important than you think. Start thinking about a combination that will have you feeling both comfortable and professional. You don’t need to go out and buy a new one, but if you think that a fresh suit will (literally) do the job, then go for it!

Whatever the job or interview is know that you have it under control. Confidence is key in these situations, so remember to bring your best game to the meeting. Also, don’t rush any of the questions and show how valuable of an addition you would be to the company. So, remember to keep your cool and take a deep breath before you sit down with the employer. Good luck, you will be great!
