There are factors you need to consider before walking in and be interviewed:a. Job specification. Is the job something you know you can do or you can learn?
b. The company background. Learn the line of work the company has. Is it something you believe you are qualified?
c. The environment of the work offices. Are the people working in this company friendly enough for you and that you would easily fit in?
If the answer of these three questions is yes then go ahead take the challenge.
1. Believe in yourself and your capabilities
Your confidence in your capabilities will show during an interview. This will provide you a relax mood during you entire interview and the interviewer will be impressed.
Put extra effort in your physical appearance, after all it is one of the key factors. As they say first impression lasts.
Follow through schedules. Afterall, you are the one looking for a job so you shouldn't let your interviewer wait for you.
The interview process:
3. Set good examples
During the interview process, smile and be courteous to your interviewer. Be sincere in every answer to provide to the questions that your interviewer asked. Talk calmly, this will help you deliver the necessary information you want your interviewer to know about you and your capabilities.
Always tell the truth about your capabilities, if ever you find that you have no idea about what your interviewer asked from then try the indirect way by providing an assurance that you will learn it quickly in time and if given a chance. You have to be very selective about this though as there will be instances that your interviewer may not be impressed by your lack of knowledge.
Sincerity can be delivered in different ways. Try looking at your interviewers eye whenever you speak as this will help convey sincerity but do not overdo as too much staring can become rude.
6. Avoid unnecessary movements
Too much fidgeting will make you more nervous. This will give your interviewer an idea that you are having a hard time with the interview and you will lose the sense of self-confidence.
7. Straight to the point.
Whenever you are asked by the interviewer, always provide a clear and concise answer. Keep it short and simple. Too many flowery wordings do not really impress an interviewer and it will also lead to you forgetting what you want to say.
8. Avoid personal touches
As much as minimize divulging any personal experiences that are not related to the interview or the job at hand. This will help you be on the safe side and keep your interview focused on your capabilities.
If this is not your first time...
9. Respect confidentiality
Make sure to only divulge information about how you work in your previous job. There are certain information about your previous company that your future company does not need to know afterall, you left your previous job for a better career opportunity so there is no need to bring up bad temperaments or ill feelings about them during the interview plus this will also make you trustworthy and the new company you will be working for will appreciate that.
