In the midst of technological advancement nowadays, the "back-to-basics" rule still applies when it comes to getting hired for a job. It does not matter if you are planning to apply for a million-dollar company or a small, independent firm. So you have distributed your resume to prospective employers and you have determined the correct job to apply for. The next step is to schedule the job interview.
Finally, you show up for the interview.
Here are 7 easy steps on how you can improve your interviewing skills:
1.) Prepare for the interview.
First, dress appropriately. Second, practice basic courtesy. Know where the interview will be held and be there with ample time to prepare yourself before the scheduled interview. 2.) Research.
Learn about your potential employer. In your mind, develop a clear picture of the company profile.
Make a great first impression by maintaining eye contact, giving the interviewer a firm handshake, a friendly smile and a polite greeting. In the course of the interview, answer the questions briefly and accurately. If you are applying for your first job, do not let your lack of experience hinder you from gaining the advantage against more experienced applicants. 5.) Ask questions.
Finally, as you end the interview, make sure to thank the interviewer again for his or her time, thus leaving a lasting impression.
Send that all-important thank you note after the interview. Thank the interviewer for the time that he took with you and for giving you that opportunity. A lot of research has been made about the interviewing process. First, you make a schedule for the interview.
The interview itself then transpires.
You eventually get accepted and you discuss, negotiate for and sign-up the job offer.
You may notice that the interviewing takes up a great deal of the getting-hired process, so you might as well polish up your interviewing skills on your way to getting that dream job.
