  • Think to yourself, there is no one better for the job than you and then rock it out like no tomorrow.
  • Check out some articles online about body language. They did a special on that on Rachel Ray and apparently it makes a big difference. Maintain eye contact and never pause to think of an answer if it's not something you need time to think about.
  • I've had many, many job interviews, and been hired many times, and listened to LOTS of interviewing advice. I think that advice generally misses the most important thing, and gets people focusing on trivialities like eye contact or not saying anything negative or firm handshakes, etc. The most important thing in a job interview, by a factor of 4 at least, is this: LISTEN. Pay attention. BE there fully. If you're doing that, you can respond appropriately as the situation calls for it. If you're not doing that -- if you're caught up in worrying "what do they think of me", or so focused on trying to appear competent that you don't hear what the interviewer just told you about the company, you'll have a rough time. People who know how to listen are able to blend in to the situation easily and respond spontaneously and appropriately to what happens in the interview. The interviewer leaves with the sense that the jobseeker is intelligent, aware, adaptable, reasonable, and can quite possibly integrate well with the company. The only major question left is whether they have the skills required, and you can't really fix up your skills before the interview anyway.
  • Be on time and relax. You are more than qualified.
  • Pay attention and have a conversation with your interviewer. Any potential employer is at least as lucky to have you as any employee as you are to be employed by them. Also be confident in yourself and remember that there are many other places that are eager to hire you. Knock them dead!
  • Don't do this:
  • People hire other people when they think they will fit in and not suck up a lot of management time. Don't bitch about previous employers, be on time, look spiffy, and concentrate on projects you've completed with success rather than listing out a bunch of skills. Also, have questions ready for the interviewer, and make sure you fully know what the company does. If things seem to go well, I always ask to meet with the people I would be working with before making a decision.
  • Dress to impress but if it is just a casual position that does't require any real eperience,then don't because this may leave a materialistic impression. If it is a casual position the dress casually. Arrive at least 10 minutes early because this makes a good impression and shows employers that you can be on time, however some employers like to make you wait a considerable amount of time before calling you back to their office. This builds suspense like waiting for the principal to call you back into th office, when you know you have done something bad. Don't reflect on the amount of time they keep you waiting and bring a newspaper to read to occupy your time if they keep you waiting. If you remain unconfident, then it will show. Always smile and maintain eye contact. After all, they want a person who is confident in their job capabilities.
  • I hate job interviews, they are like a blind date without food.
  • —˜ Dress appropriately (but not too formal-could cause yourself to appear "too good for you") â—˜ Smile ☺ â—˜ Think your thoughts through (refrain from "um's" and "uuh's") â—˜ You can only do what you can do. Don't try to be who you're not, or living up to your standards will be hard Just remember: You CAN do this! Good Luck!
  • Thanks! +
  • dont be nervous
