1. Dress for Success
Dressing smart and presentable for an interview is an absolute must. When choosing an outfit for an interview, you should consider the job you are being interviewed for and make sure that it is the correct attire because it shows that you have put effort into making a good impression. It will also make you feel more confident in yourself because if you look good, you feel good.
Doing your research on the company itself will not only make you look really good to the employer but it will also tackle those nerves. You should also make sure that you are completely aware of what the job role involves and know the ins and outs so that you can explain why you are the best fit for the role.
It’s always a good thing if you know a little background information on the company too, not only does it ensure that you aren’t caught off guard but it gives you a trip up your sleeve.
Practice makes perfect, and it also makes a successful interview! The worst thing you could do is walk into an interview and have no idea what to say, so its always a good idea to practice interview questions with a friend or family member so that when it happens for real you’re prepared on what to say.
When answering interview questions, you don’t want to sound too rehearsed but it is always a good idea to keep some relevant points in mind so that you feel confident in your answers.
Smiling is contagious, and so is a positive attitude. Show the employer that you are happy to be given the opportunity and how much you want it. Not only is this a great way to show your confidence, but it also gives a more positive outlook on you as a person.
