Below are tips on how to prepare for an interview. Advice includes how to research the job and company, how to practice interview questions and answers, how to dress for the interview, how to follow up after the interview, and more.
Analyze the Job Description and Job Requirement
Before you are interviewed , you should search job description and job requirement for this position you applied for. You consider what the company is seeking and expecting in a candidate.
Make a list of the experiences, skills, knowledge, and professional and personal qualities that are required by the employer, so it is important for success in the job interview.
If job announcement is not showed detail about job description, you should search and expect job description for this position.
Make a Match for your qualification with employer
Once you have created a list of the qualifications for the job, you must make a list of your assets and match them to the job descriptions and requirements.These lists might include skills, qualities, certifications, experiences, professional qualifications, abilities, computer skills, and knowledge bases. You can bring up these assets when you explain to the employer why you are a great fit for the employer.
Research the Company background and information
Before you go on a job interview, it’s important to find out as much as you can about not only the job, but also the company.Company research is a critical part of interview preparation. It will help you prepare to answer interview questions about the company.
You can check out the company website ( at the “About Us” page ) or industry magazines . You will know company information such as industry type, products or services, branch or number of employees . You can also check out company reviews from clients and current and former employees.
Practice Interviewing and answering questions
Take the time to practice answering interview questions you will probably be asked during a job interview. This will help give you a chance to prepare and practice answers, and will also help calm your nerves.
For example, we assume that interview question is asked you how can you make our company growth ? so you will practice answering this question.
You can practice interviewing by yourself , with a friend or family member. Employers may interview you directly or indirectly via phone or panel. Sometime you may be tested questions and answers thru writing.
Get Your Interview Clothes Ready
Regardless of the type of job you’re interviewing for, that first impression should be a great thing. When dressing for an interview for a professional position, dress accordingly in business attire.
If you’re applying for a job in restaurant, it’s still important to be neat, tidy, and well-groomed, and to present a positive image to the employer.
It is also important to think about your makeup and accessories when dressing for an interview.
Decide What to Do With Your Hair
How you style your hair for a job interview is almost as important as the interview clothes you wear. After all, the interviewer is going to notice everything about you – including your interview attire, hairstyle, and makeup – and you only have seconds to make a great impression.
What to Bring to a Job Interview
It’s important to know what to bring and what not to bring to a job interview. Items may bring include copies of your resume, a list of references, a list of questions ask the interviewer, and something to write with. Please note your phone off.
Practice Interview Etiquette
Proper interview etiquette is important. Remember to greet the receptionist, your interviewer, and everyone else you meet politely, pleasantly, and enthusiastically.
During the interview, watch your body language – shake hands firmly and make eye contact as you articulate your points. Pay attention, be attentive, and look interested.
It’s important to know where you need to go for your job interview – ahead of time. That way, you’ll avoid running late to the interview. Use Google Maps or another app to get directions if you’re not sure where you are going.
Give yourself a few extra minutes and arrive a little early to the interview.
Listen and Ask Questions
During a job interview, listening is just as important as answering questions. If you’re not paying attention, you’re not going to be able to give a good response.
You should answer all questions that interviewers asked even some questions you may not know.
Also, be ready to engage the interviewer. You want there to be a give and take in the conversation, so you’re building a relationship with the interviewer rather than just providing rote responses to questions. You can ask employers own questions.
Towards the end of the interview, let the recruiter know that you believe the job is an excellent fit and that you are highly interested. Restate why you want the job, what your qualifications are, how you might make significant contributions, and so on.
At the end of interview, you should say word Thank You to interviewer that let you have a chance to meet interviewer for job.
