At last, you are finally given the chance for the interview. Ready to go? Not yet. Aside from putting your self to a good night rest, you must be prepared for the job interview. How? Here are some tips:
Review your resume.
It may sound ironic, but yes, you have to review your own resume. If at one time you are asked by the interviewer something that is already written and you have forgotten about it, they may presume that you are not what you have written. It can be the reason why you will not be called for a next interview.
Know the company and the job you are applying for.
What if you’ll be asked: “What do you know about our company?” It is helpful if you already researched about the company you are applying to. They will surely be glad to know that you are familiar with their company. The interviewer will think that you are familiar with what you are applying for.
Prepare questions that might be asked during the job interview.
Jot down job interview questions that you feel will be asked and practice answering them. In some questions, it is necessary to provide evidence of your success. It is a great way to promote your candidacy.
Be sure to be on time.
Remember the date and time of the interview to avoid being late. If possible, arrive ahead of time.
Look your best.
Make sure that what you are wearing is neat, tidy and appropriate for the type of firm you are interviewing with.
Bring a nice portfolio.
Along with your resume, bring a portfolio that might be of great help to the job you are applying for. Include also pen and paper.
Prepare to be calm.
Trying to relax and staying calm will make it possible for you to pay attention to the interviewer. It will also let you maintain eye contact with the interviewer. With that, you are saving yourself from possible embarrassment.
