The first ten minutes of your interview can ruin your chances of getting the job
Get the right start and you could be ahead of the competition for the job. Have a bad first ten minutes and your interview might already have sealed your fate.
You want the job so the right preparation is important
Start with planning how you will be dressed. Make sure it is appropriate for the job position you are applying for. Be smart and not untidy in any way. Remember to wear a happy smile and look interested in where you are and why you are there.
Do some research on the company and the job requirements. Go online and check out the business sector.
Be professional but never be flashy. Look the interviewer in the eye and give a good handshake. All these things can be practiced so that they are kept in mind naturally and don't get forgotten in the high pressure situation that an interview can be for many people.
You must sell yourself and your qualities for the job
Prepare a few short points about yourself and how you are the ideal candidate for the position. The interviewer needs to know how your abilities fit the job requirements. Practice the key points until they come over naturally and you will not forget them at the last minute.
Practice will help you to be relaxed and being relaxed in the interview helps it go smoothly. You can be sure the interviewer will take note and recognize you as a confident and capable applicant.
The more questions you can plan for and practice then the more you will come over as the person to be hired. You can improve your preparation for job interview questions by taking a look at the Proven Job Interview Answers course.
