Do you remember your last job interview? Was it a ‘walk in the park’ or a ‘nightmare’?
If you are planning or hoping to have another interview, here are the first 3 tips (suggestions) from job specialists, Monster.
Practice Good Nonverbal Communication
Show that you are confident: stand up straight, make eye contact and connect with a firm handshake. That first nonverbal impression can be a great beginning — or a quick ending — to your interview.
Dress for the Job or Company
Today, many companies have a casual dress code. This does not give you permission to dress as “they” do when you interview. It is important to know what to wear to an interview and to be well-groomed. Whether you wear a suit or something less formal depends on the company culture and the position you are seeking. If possible, call to find out about the company dress code before the interview.
From the very beginning of the interview, your interviewer is giving you information, either directly or indirectly. If you are not hearing it, you are missing a major opportunity. Good communication skills include listening and letting the person know you heard what was said. Observe your interviewer, and match that style and pace.
