Since we are teenagers and for our whole life thereafter, we are between an old job and future job, stuck in the middle with the mediocrity of our current one. For our entire lives we are looking for new jobs, for places that could be our places, for teams that we could be calmly and happily part of, for jobs that will be just hobbies and for personal development that will always bring satisfaction and happiness. Do what you love for a living and you won’t work a day, they say. But somewhere between the job seeking and going to work, there is pretty important step that cannot be skipped – the job interview. And according to the result of this one, you will either get that job or remain with your old one. It’s kind of pressure – knowing that this thing is so important and that on this meeting depend your future life, can make you nervous and stressed. But there is no place for panic attacks and anxiety. Be calm, open-minded and impress, and there won’t be a job in your field you won’t be suitable for. So take a look at those tips that will bring you sure success.
Before the interview those people who are expecting you and who will torture you with many questions sit on their desks and read your CV carefully and actively. Thus they are prepared for your coming and they know as much for as they could. And just like them you need to prepare yourself for the interview, as well. Make a research. This is a key step. Find information about the company you are applying at, about its values and about its goals. And while they are interviewing you, show them that you know where you are, that you are here for a reason, and that you could help them uniquely and thoroughly.
Be confident, but do not brag too much
The interviewers like seeing that you have confidence and that they could trust you. If you are too shy, they would think that you will be shy in the communication with customers, clients and colleagues and this is not a good skill, at all. However, do not overdo and do not brag too much, as well. If you have the knowledge, experience and needed skills, they will notice. They will see that you are suitable for the job and there is no need for you to directly tell them.
No one likes people who complain. And the truth is that being too moody, sad and unsatisfied do not speak well for you. If you don’t like something, change it, they say. If you don’t change anything in your life, do not complain. Because the words are meaningless, when there is no action. And the action speaks more than all the words. Go there with a wide smile and open mind and they will fall in love with you immediately.
