How to ace a job interview in today's recession

By Edited Jun 24, 2015 0 2

Going to a job interview can be intimidating for some people, but it doesn't have to be. Going to the interview with the following strategy, can make your interview very successful, and give you a great opportunity to land the job you want. The best advice that I can give, is to tell you that by going into a job interview, and being well prepared, will give you an edge up on the competition.

1). Dress to impress. Though this may seem to most people a no-brainer, you would be surprised how many people come to job interviews in jeans and a t-shirt. Dress up like it was a special occasion, first impressions go a long ways. Remember these people probably don't know you, and if they hire you, they will know you won't leave a bad impression on the company.

2). Practice your answers to questions you may be asked in the job interview. Practice in front of a mirror, this may sound silly, but this will give you an idea of your facial expressions as you answer the questions. Show enthusiasm and confidence, This will convey to to the person interviewing you, that you really want to work for their company.

3). Walk into the interview room with complete confidence. When you show confidence in the job interview, you will gain the confidence of the person interviewing you. Companies hire based on how confident they feel with individuals, so go in and wow them. Make sure that you do not become over confident, this will make you seem brash and ignorant, and will likely cause you to not be considered for the job.

4). Do a little research about the company that you plan on interviewing with. This will show that you have a real interest in the company. No need to do an all night study session on the company, just a brief overview will suffice.

5). A last but not least, show up on time for the interview. Get there at least 5-10 minutes early, this shows that will be prompt as an employee. Ask the receptionist where job interviews are taking place, and then go wait patiently. Good luck!
