Job Interview Tips
Do you have a job interview coming up? Don’t know what to expect? Here are 10 tips!
1. Dress appropriately
What you wear is going to introduce you before you even speak so make sure that you make the right impression. You can go neutral or wear a bright coloured top to make it look more fun. And don’t go over the top with jewellery, keep it subtle.
2. Don’t wear too much make up
Dark make up can look too harsh so just go for nude tones for your eyes and lips. And if you’re doing a winged eyeliner don’t make the line too thick!
3. Stay away from strong perfumes
You’re probably going to sit in a small room with a few or one person. Having a heavy scented perfume on can be unpleasant for the other person. So choose a light perfume or even better, don’t wear any at all.
4. Do your research
What kind of company is it, what does it stand for etc. You should know all that and tell why
you fit in perfectly.
Practicing with somebody can be very helpful, that way you’ll know how you come across and what you can change.
6. Be prepared for questions
It’s guaranteed that you’ll be getting questions like, “why do we need to hire you” or “what are your good and bad qualities”. If you google it you’ll find a lot of questions that you can prepare for.
7. Be on time
Very simple but can happen to anybody. You’re bus is late or you’re stuck in traffic. Make sure that you’ll arrive on time by leaving sooner. Because you don’t want to give a bad impression before you even started.
8. Don’t exaggerate
Be yourself, if you exaggerate too much about yourself it can be seen as arrogance or a lie.
9. Stay calm
It’s totally normal to have nerves but you still want to act normal.Don’t speak too fast and find your best sitting position. Don’t give in to the nerves too much.
10. Ask questions
If you ask questions you’ll seem more interested. Here are some questions that you can ask:
– What do you like most about working for this company?
– What are the first priorities for this position?
– What are the challenges of this position?
I hope that this was helpful.
