So you have the interview of your life set up and you’re freaking out. What are the best tips for a smooth interview? An employer will make a decision about you in 60 seconds and either you will be called back, hired or never hear from them again.
Your appearance is the first thing a potential employer will assess. Show up properly dressed, men in a clean and pressed suit and women in a solid color suit with coordinating blouse, jewelry and shoes. Not the comfy, well worn heels used so often in your previous job, buy new ones if you need to.
Next they’re going to want to talk to you. The best tips for a smooth interview, especially the talking part, are research, research and research. Search the company, gain information, and be prepared to ask smart questions. You care about this opportunity so you need to care about the company. Be intelligent and thoughtful. Most importantly be honest.
Be prepared to explain any extended absences from the workforce and how you can add value to their firm. Be confident and poised. If they offer to take you out for a meal, order a healthy meal, a salad or chicken dish.
Be sure to avoid an alcoholic beverage, even if your interviewer orders one. Pay attention when they tell you about the company and the position, then paraphrase the information and repeat it to them. This will show you have active listening skills. First impressions are key, be prepared!
