This is your time to shine. When seeking a new career, the job interview is the process through which you, as a potential employee are evaluated by an employer for prospective employment in their organisation.
Important Steps before and during a job interview
Before attending an interview it helps to update yourself about the company you are meeting with.
Never arrive for an interview looking sloppy but avoid over grooming.
Be concise, avoid vague answers and an over elaborate commentary.
Every interviewee should refer to key accomplishments identified in their CV when answering questions.
When the interviewer asks, “What is your biggest weakness?” Give an honest reply but end with a positive note.
Be yourself! You’ll score more points if you don’t fear the risk of moving ahead or learning something new.
One important factor in an interview is to maintain eye contact with the interviewer/s without staring.
Use the nod signal enough to show the interviewer/s that you understand or agree with what is being said.
Never mention salary during the first interview. Wait till the second and don’t be first to bring up the topic.
Keep up-to-date on local news. You’ll learn things about companies with whom you might have an interview.
Employers view a candidate’s two-three year stay in one position as having a positive attitude and as broadening their skills.
