Three Tips for a Smooth Interview

We are all eventually going to be graduating and will have to face the nerve-wracking process of going on interviews. I figured, why not conquer the art of interviewing so this process will be a little less strenuousOh yeah, landing your dream job wouldn’t hurt either. During this blog, I will be discussing threetips that will make the interviewing process that much easier:dressing professionally, being confident, and do not eliminate yourself.

 

Dressing professionally seems like common sense, but it’s not. When going on an interview dress appropriately. A suit is preferable for any gender. It is always better to be overdressed then to be underdressed. Your clothing is a reflection of your character. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. So make it count!

 

Being confident is also key to the interviewing process. Even if you are not, appear to be confidentMake sure that your body language reflects your confident attitude. Shake hands firmly, make eye contact with the employer, and keep your posture upright. Be cautious of not coming off too confident.There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance.

 

A lot of interviewees eliminate themselves by saying foolish things. Look at the interviewer as a media reporter. Anticipate what they will ask you the week before the interview and plan your answers in advance. This way your answers will be correct and make sense.

 

If you follow these three tips, your interview will run smoothly. Interviews are not meant to stress you out.  “Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.”– Napoleon Bonaparte
