Interview Tips- Reminders and Warnings
This article with interview tips- the more general arts of conducting yourself at the interview.
Interview Tip 1: Be Polite And Manage Your Nerves
No power on earth can prevent you feeling what you fell but if you have a frame work of good manners, if you look good and are well-prepared, if you know how to behave and have practiced this situation, then all you need do to manage your physical and emotional feelings is to ….. Calm yourself down a little, by breathing a little more deeply and getting your attention off our mind, through your body and out into the room.
Consciously slow your speech and deepen voice tone early in the interview at the more formal part; you can lighten up later when rapport has been established.
Follow their lead on matters of etiquette; don’t rush into the coffee; be sure to acknowledge everyone in the room; no need to be obsequious.
Interview Tip 2: Prepared And Stay Professional
Depending on the skill of the interviewer(s) the warm up period may be justfv
Passing time and you may get some trivial but unexpected questions. As things proceed there could be any number of interviewing styles developed and whatever happens your best strategy is to remain resolutely the professional that you are.
Be ready for relative trivia like ‘what’s your idea of great weekend” or unexpected openers: ‘why do you like the look of this job”
Prepare answers to any trick questions you could think of things like “why do you want to leave your present job” ‘ what are your worst weaknesses”
Respond with questions of your own, bases on the research you have done in advance, giving them a chance to talk about the company.
In moment of temporary confusion you can ask them what is behind a particular question, ‘could you clarify what you will like to learn here”
Aggressive interviews are probably just acting and looking for your response; staying calm and professional will impress them the most and if they really do try to belittle you take the initiative with a counter question of your own.
Watch out for really indulgent interviewers who encourage your negative traits and give you enough rope to hang yourself; never start swearing criticizing or giving away secret of your present employer.
