What is interview success? How can you achieve it? You might be wondering what tips and tricks are available to help you succeed in your interview, whether virtual or in-person.
Here are some tips to help you with your next interview:
Dress appropriately. Whether you are in-person or virtual, you need to dress for success. You will appear confident, respected, and professional when you dress your best.
Invest some time in researching the company beforehand. Interviewers get to know candidates and see if he/she/they are a right fit for the role. By doing research about the company, you will demonstrate that you will be beneficial to their bottom line and meet their goals.
Observe your nonverbal communication/body language. Make eye contact with the interviewer while you speak. You have no idea how important this is. Eye contact builds trust and relationships. Maintain an even tone of voice and be polite.
Make sure you know your audience and are prepared to fully engage with them. You increase your chances of getting a job offer by standing out during an interview in addition to being different from other candidates.
Thank your interviewer(s) within 24-48 hours of your interview. As a result, it displays your gratitude for the interview and leaves a positive impression.
In the article, “Interviewing is hard,” Jessica Jensen, Global Director of Social Media and Influence Marketing states that:
“Interviewing is hard. There is no question about it. For the majority of us, it ranks up there with dental work and taxes. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average stay with one company is 4.2 years. This means many of us will interview, at minimum, ten times in our career. Like it or not, we all should get good at it.
Interviewing for a new job is not the only area of life that can drive stress levels up.”
