Learn how to ace a job interview

in job •  last year 

Job interviews are clearly a source of stress for any of us, and that’s because we feel put in a position in which we are being analysed, labeled and after that, accepted or rejected. There are a lot of factors that can dictate if you get the job or not, but what you can do is to put in a lot of effort to make a good impression.

This way, even if you won’t be accepted for the job, at least you’ll know that you gave your best.

Firstly, when it comes to an interview, it is very important to have some time dedicated to preparing yourself. So, after you’ve been called for the interview, you should use that time left until the big day to find out as much information about the company as you can.

Do some research on the field of activity, on their competitors, their awards, mostly anything you can find. The employer will be impressed to see that you are really interested in the position. Besides that, that information can be helpful if he/she’ll ask you trick questions.

Another thing you can do is to prepare some standard answers for the questions you may receive. You’ll have to figure out what are the abilities that might recommend you for the position you applied for. There will be many candidates for that job, and that’s why it is very important to make a good impression and to know how to “sell yourself”.

Keep in mind that the employer will be impressed by a candidate who will show that he is willing to work hard in order to develop as a person.

Secondly, on the day of the interview you will have to pay a lot of attention to your outfit. Although we don’t like to accept this, our looks and the first impression we make are very important. Make sure that your outfit is decent, avoid bright colors that scream “I’m desperate”.

It should seem that you look nice and decent without putting in too much effort. Also, during the interview make sure to be relaxed, but not in a way that makes you seem uninterested. You should look confident, not arrogant. Be nice to everyone you meet, smile and be sociable.

Lastly, at the end of the interview thank them politely and don’t hurry to ask for feedback. You could send them a “thank you” email a few days after the interview. It’s important that you make yourself noticed and make them remember your name.

Let's hope we won't need a job with Steemit help!

In order to be successful in a job interview, you will need to convince your interviewer that you are the only possible candidate for the position. This might seem like an impossibly challenging task, however, there are a few simple tricks that you can follow to help you ace your next interview!

Preparation - you cannot be over prepared for an interview, so do your research and ask a friend or family member to do some mock interviews with you.

Thanks for this post

Useful post thank you @jwolf for sharing

Our first impression is very important , it sort of identifies the type of person we are .

Ps- I messaged you in the chat , wanted to ask you something

This information is very useful,i will surely use it

First impression is the last impression so dressing comes at very first. Then certain research on the field of the post would helpful in this regard. But if one does not answer with confidence then there are chances that dressing and research are not going to impress the interviewer.

Thanks a lot @jwolf for the tips Man ;)

Let me a share a very famous quote of Bill Gates

If you've found some way to educate yourself about engineering, stocks, or whatever it is, good employers will have some type of exam or interview and see a sample of your work.

Do you mean we need to find a job with this crypto collapse? lol

Till now I faced with 2 job interviews. In the first one I was very excited but I got the job and worked for 4 years. With the experience of first one, in my 2. interview I was very calm and I answered the questions very naturally. And I got the job again. So what I believe we should be ourselves. Now need to be acting or being stressful.

excellent post .thanks you sir excellent

Great tips!
I think the best would be to make his own thing and not to work for a man or a company his life long.
Today we have so many opportunities.

You just have to open your eyes and take the chances ;-)

Too many job seekers stumble through interviews as if the questions asked are coming out of left field. But many interview questions are to be expected and should be well prepared for.

You gave out good pointers.

Excellent post.

Thanks for sharing this valuable post very helpful !

"Pay attention to your outfit"
This had given a friend of mine his dream job, the whole interview was just a series of compliments on his attire.
He got the job!
