Securing a job interview is a great sign that your job hunt is on the right track! That means that your application has already gotten the attention of someone in charge of hiring who thinks that you might be a good candidate for the position. Here are a few quick and easy tips that will help your interview go as well possible.
Remember that everyone gets nervous. Even the most prepared person who is going into an interview that he doesn’t even really care about gets some butterflies in his stomach! It is totally normal to be nervous. Just remember that the anticipation is usually the worst part. Once you’ve met your interviewer and start chatting, chances are your nerves will disappear.
Dress the part. You’ve probably heard how important it is to make a good first impression and dressing neatly and nicely for your interview is a great place to start. Your interviewer will perceive you as responsible, organised and capable — exactly how you want to be perceived!
Come up with good questions.At the end of almost every interview, your interviewer will ask if you have any questions. Having some really good ones prepared ahead of time can really set you apart from other candidates. Ask questions that show you’ve researched the company and the role and are seriously interested in the position. For example, instead of asking what the hours are like, you could ask about your potential career path at the company in the future.
