Are you planning to take your career to the next level in 2019? If you’re thinking of taking the plunge and switching jobs, take a look at our tips for acing the interview and landing your dream job!
Keep It Positive Even if you’ve had negative experiences with past jobs, always talk about your experience in a positive way. Potential employers subconsciously envision themselves in the position of your past employers, so speaking negatively about past employers, colleagues or positions can trigger an unpleasant reaction.
Keep It Clear: Mumbling during an interview will give the impression that you are unprofessional and overly relaxed. While you want to remain natural, make sure that you are pronouncing all of the letters and sounds of each word. If your interviewer can’t understand your responses, you may lose the job right then and there!
Use the Interviewer’s Name: One subtle way to create a stronger rapport with your interviewer is addressing them by name. Hearing one’s own name out loud creates a positive feeling and makes the listener subconsciously feel more connected to the speaker. Don’t overdo it, but aim to use the interviewer’s name at least one or two times over the course of the interview.
