The most difficult aspect of securing a job is probably the interview. However, it is important to view it as a two-way process – the company has to sell itself to you just as much as you have to sell yourself to them. The following tips will hopefully help you to gain the confidence to ensure that you have fully prepared for your interview and are presenting yourself in the best light. Research the company and make sure you have a sound knowledge of the company i.e. its size, current projects, read the latest industry magazines and visit competitor websites. Make sure you have a clear understanding of the job you have applied for. Prepare for the interview – if necessary, make notes of examples in past or present employment which illustrate your abilities/experience to do the job. Take time think about your answers and how you want to express them before you respond to more difficult questions. Prepare questions to ask the interviewer(s) to demonstrate your genuine interest in the company.
Check out your route to the interview beforehand to ensure you arrive in good time.
Dress appropriately for the interview – first impressions do count !
During The Interview
- Ensure your body language is relaxed but professional.
- Maintain eye contact with the interviewer and smile.
- Speak to all the people in the room not just the person asking the question.
- Answer the actual question being asked.
- Avoid negative comments about previous employers as this is considered unprofessional.
- Be courteous, polite and enthusiastic at all times.
- At the end of the interview, thank the interviewer for taking the time to see you and reaffirm your interest in the position on offer.
