Sometimes you just need a change of pace. That’s when it’s a good idea to pack your bags and move to another state, city, or country. But moving (whether moving long distance or a short distance) comes with the responsibility of finding a job, and that can mean learning to become a great interview subject. If you need some help with your next interview, take a look at these tips.
1. Read about the company. So many people show up for job interviews without knowing anything about the company they are interviewing for. This is a mistake, since the person interviewing you will likely ask you what you know about the company.
2. Have questions ready. You will be asked if you have any questions, and the only wrong answer is, “no!” Think about the things that you want to know more about, and ask those questions. You can ask strategic questions, but it’s always better to ask honest questions.
3. Figure out what you’re really good at, and then come up with examples that demonstrate what you’re good at. Try and figure out what your good qualities are, and make sure that you talk about how you can use those qualities towards the new job position.
4. Figure out your faults. Everyone has some bad things happening. The person interviewing you will ask you what your downfalls are, and you should have those things prepare – and make sure that they are real weaknesses too, you are human!
5. Follow-up. After your interview, call or email to see what the verdict is, but make sure that you wait at least one week.
6. Find out why you didn’t get the job. If someone doesn’t want to hire you, that’s okay. But, make sure to find out why you didn’t’ get the job. Was someone more qualified? Knowing why you weren’t selected will help you better prepare for your next interview. If you got the job, great!
7. Go on as many interviews as possible. You know what they say: practice makes perfect! The more interviews you go on, the better you will be at interviewing. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll have a few callbacks in no time.
8. Remember that everyone is nervous – even the person interviewing you! You never know, the person interviewing you may be really nervous too. Just act like your usual self, take deep breaths, and answer questions to the best of your ability. If you don’t get this job, there will be another one around the corner.
