Nailing the Interview

Nailing the Interview

 Firstly, be prepared. This is a big one because it will cover two main aspects of the job interview. The first big aspect of an interview is obviously the questions themselves. You will be answering a lot of them and the interviewer will expect you to be prepared with answers that present you in the best possible light, show why you are the best candidate for the role and will help them understand you and how you as a person will slot into their business and role.

The second aspect is great communication and standing out from other applicants and this is another area in which preparation is key in terms of research. In the interview in order to stand out from the crowd you need to show that you aren’t winging it, that you know the company you are applying for and you know why you want to work there. For both of these areas preparation is key in order to communicate these things effectively.

Develop your listening skills before the interview and make sure that you enter the interview room with a calm and confident way. Being calm and confident will help you to avoid ‘running away with yourself’ and help you to hone in on what the interviewer is actually asking so that you can demonstrate your listening and communication skills providing them with what they actually want to know and not just what comes off the top of your head! There’s tonnes more to go at when it comes to nailing interviews that it’s likely you will see in future posts but for now, get started with this clip on what interviewers find most important when recruiting…
