5 Ways To Prepare For YOUR next Job Interview
One of the most stressful parts of any job search is the interview. No matter how qualified you are, or how much experience you have, if you mess up the interview, you won’t get the job. If you have an upcoming interview for your dream job and you want to be prepared, keep reading and let our recruiting experts show you the best ways to prepare yourself for a job interview.
Here are 5 ways to prepare yourself for an interview:
Dress for the position.
Find out what the dress code is at the company you are applying to and emulate that when you arrive for your interview. This way, the hiring manager can imagine you in the position since you are already dressed the part. Do not, however, underdress for your interview. If the position you are applying for is more labour intensive, wear business casual attire to the interview.
Know where you are going.
Knowing what floor and in what room the interview is being held is important, especially if you are running late and arriving with very little time to spare.
Research both the company and the position.
A couple of days before your interview, do some research on the company you are applying to. Also research the position you are applying for. This can be a big help during the interview as you will already know a little about the company including things like: what they do, what they sell, who the president or CEO is and what your specific job position requires. With this information, you can tailor your responses to the interviewer’s questions.
Don’t forget to bring your resume.
Do not forget to bring an updated copy of your resume to your job interview. In fact, bring a couple of copies of your resume to be safe.
Practice some basic interview questions.
Find a friend, your spouse, or your roommate and do a practice interview. Have them ask you some basic questions about your resume and the company or position you are applying for.
Be prepared for your next job interview and remember to be as calm and relaxed as possible. This will help you say the right things, answer the questions properly and you might even land your dream job!
