by Arina Smith Job & Career 21 February 2018
These days people send out so many resumes and never hear anything back from employers. If they ever do finally get an interview, it is so important to make sure that the interview goes well in order to lock down the job. It is tough to tell what employers want to see and how they want you to interact. Below are three tips to help with your next interview.
1. Show your energy and interest :
It is always important in an interview to show that you are not only interested in the company but that you are happy to be there. Employers don’t want to burden you with their interview, they want it to be a normal lighthearted conversation. We spoke with a San Diego personal injury attorney who owns a law firm and interviews new potential lawyers weekly. He explained that if the candidate is not excited then he is not excited and often times he will end the interview early in order to move on to the other person who really wants that job. Make sure you display the energy and interest you have for that job if you want to increase your chances of winning.
2. Research the company :
It is very important in every single interview to research the company that you are applying to. Research the founders of the company and everything else you can find about them. It is common in interviews for executive positions that the employer will ask you about changes in the company or “what would you do to make things better”. Be prepared for this question but remember, don’t ever say anything that others will think will put their job in jeopardy. A good idea is to suggest marketing ideas or community outreach programs that you could lead for the company.
3. Share any unique stories or circumstances you have :
Most job positions in the modern labor market call for diversity. If you have traveled the world or if you speak multiple languages or if you play any sports, make sure to share that with the interviewer. They always want someone interesting that can liven up the workplace. Also, remember to connect with the interviewers about any of their passions or hobbies. If they express that they are into something and you have a common interest, don’t be afraid to share your thoughts with him. Remember, an interview is just talking with your future employers. There is nothing to be nervous about but instead, you should be excited to talk with these people about the future and how you would fit into their team.
Getting an opportunity to attend an interview in an excellent way to showcase your abilities. This is an excellent privilege to display your energy and interests to the potential employer. Be keen to carry out an in-depth research about the company and share any unique incidences or stories that you have. It will increase your chances of being absorbed for that job opening.
