Research the company before your interview. It’s a great way to know where you would fit into the organization. It also lets the employer know that you really want to be a part of the company.
Prepare a list of questions to ask your interviewers so you can assess whether this company is the right place to launch your career. Ask questions about the organization, the opportunities they can offer you and what you can expect from the company.
Remember to be enthusiastic. Every interview should be a two-way communication. It is very important to leave a good impression on the interviewers, as respect for their time and yours. You will never know if an opportunity will lead to another, so do your best!
Try to relax and remember that the interviewers are interested in the real you. When preparing, it’s helpful to think about how you would like to communicate certain points but avoid over-rehearsing, as it may come across as impersonal.
Market your skills and related experience in the field that you are applying for. Be sure to do it in a way that is positive, but not cocky or aggressive. It’s important to establish a good rapport with your interviewer.
Take pride in your presentation. The interviewers will be looking for professionalism in how you dress, how you speak and what you tell them about yourself. Dress for success, in the manner you would dress for the position you’re seeking.
Make eye contact with your interviewer, be a good listener and focus. Some job seekers talk too much during interviews. Don’t volunteer your personal opinions about any subjects unless you are asked.
Arrive at least five minutes early and if – for reasons out of your control – you’re running late, please make the effort to call your interviewer and explain why.
