Job interview Tips

  2. 2.  Prepare your interview outfit: shine the shoes and plan grooming things like getting a haircut.  Work out where you're going, travelling times and transport options.  Have a copy of the job description and the person specification on you and a couple of copies of your CV, all in a neat folder or portfolio case.

  5. 5. Choosing your attire  Choose Solids Over Patterns  Choose Neutrals Over Brights  Know the Office Environment
  6. 6. What Not to Bring to the Interview  Gum  Cell phone  Coffee or soda  If you have lots of piercings, leave some of your rings at home (earrings only, is a good rule)  Cover tattoos
  7. 7. Do your research, dear! :3  1. Explore the company website and social media accounts. I know it sounds obvious, but people do forget to do this, or dismiss it as unimportant.  2. Search the web for news and information written by others – including the news media and business journals – about the company.  3. Look at sites such as Glassdoor.com to see what those who have worked for – or interviewed with – the company share. (Keep in mind that each is a reflection of one person’s experience/opinion).
  8. 8.  4. Find people who work there, used to work there, or otherwise have current knowledge of the organization and may be willing to briefly speak with you about the company and position. Ideally, these are folks you know or can reach out to through a mutual connection (think people you’ve met in person or through online networks; use LinkedIn to find possible mutual connections). Such a conversation may allow you to understand how this position will really be evaluated, learn more about the culture of the company, and get a sense of the management style and structure.
  9. 9.  5. Do one last online search the day before your interview so you’re up-to- date on any news related to the company (e.g., an award the company has just received).
  10. 10. What the Interviewer Wants to Know  (1) Do you have the skills to do this job? and (2) Will you be happy doing this job? Tailor your responses to answer well those two questions and you will be well on your way to landing the job if the fit is right.
  11. 11. When being interviewed…  Maintain low peripheral movement  Try to keep your hands lower than your elbows, rest them on the arms of the chair or your thighs or make a low steeple with the fingers of both hands.
  12. 12. Optimizing Eye Contact
  13. 13.  Hold eye contact initially for five to 10 seconds, after that use it only intermittently.
  14. 14. Introduction :3  It is important that you introduce yourself, shake hands, and be friendly.  The first question is often a "breaking the ice" (establish a rapport) type of question.  How are you today?  Did you have any trouble finding us?  What do you think of the weather lately?
  15. 15. How are you today?  GOOD I'm fine thank you, and you? I'm well thank you.  BAD So, so OK Not so well
  16. 16.  Talking about your experience and credentials (qualifications) is the most important part of any job interview.
  17. 17.  When preparing for your interview, go back through your key achievements in your career and find out what the numbers were.
  18. 18. Education  Remember that your education took place in the past. Therefore you need to use the past tenses, for example: I attended the University of Helsinki from 1987 to 1993. I graduated with a degree in agricultural planning. Etc.
  19. 19.  If you are currently a student you should use the following present tenses: I am currently studying at the University of New York and will graduate with a degree in Economics in the spring. I am studying English at the Borough Community College.
  20. 20.  Remember to include any training you may have had when talking about your education.
  21. 21. Experience and Qualifications  When talking about current employment be careful to use the present perfect or present perfect continuous. This signals that you are still performing these tasks at your current job, for example: Smith and Co. have employed me for the last 3 years as a salesperson. I have been creating customer contacts for 6months.
  22. 22.  When talking about past employers use the past tenses to signal that you are no longer working for that company, for example: I was employed by Jackson's from 1989 to 1992 as a clerk. I worked as a receptionist at the Ritz while I was living in New York.
  23. 23. Talking about Responsibilities  Most importantly, you will need to demonstrate your qualifications and skills, which are required for the job you are applying for. The job skills that you have acquired in the past may not have been for the same exact job. Therefore, it is important to show how the capabilities you do have relate to the job you are applying for.
  24. 24. Before  Consider getting a manicure  Wash your hands as close to interview time as possible.  Carry a tissue in your pocket.
  25. 25. During  Offer your hand even if the interviewer doesn't offer his or her hand first. You are the one trying to make a good impression so feel free to initiate the handshake.  Use a firm handshake and adjust your grip to the other person's hand. Don't squeeze the other person's hand too tight but don't offer them a weak or limp hand either.  Hold the handshake for 2 to 3 seconds making a slight up and down pumping motion. Do not exaggerate the pumping motion and avoid any unconventional handshakes.  Smile and make eye contact as you shake hands.
  26. 26. Leaving…  Thank them for the interview personally as you shake hands before you leave.
  27. 27. Oh.. Ah ah ah.. Tsk Tsk >.<  Avoid using a more personal two- handed handshake, hug or other gesture that could be misinterpreted in the workplace.
  28. 28. CONGRATULATIONS!
