For most jobs, the interview can make or break a candidate’s chance of being hired. Grades, experience and recommendations can go for naught if a candidate does not do well in an interview.
For this reason, preparation is essential when it comes to interviewing for a job. One needs to make sure they have knowledge of both the company and the position that they are applying for in addition to having the qualifications. In fact, a study conducted by Come Recommended states that employers said 47% of the time candidates make the mistake of having little to no knowledge of the company.
Candidates also need to present themselves as best as they can in a confident manner to show potential employers that they have the skills and ability to do well in a potential position. However, there are little details that need to be paid attention to in order to guarantee a good interview.
Some of these things include your appearance, your first impression, your posture, eye contact and avoiding nervous habits such as fidgeting and playing with your hair. My how-to video is a general outline with tips when it comes to interviewing for a job, including before, during and after the interview. Enjoy!
