5 tips to nail a job interview

Job interview is both an exciting and nerve-wracking experience. It can either open doors for your new career or make you question your own skills and competences. We understand that the prospect of making an amazing impression on your future employer can be really terrifying, but today we’ve prepared 5 tips to help you nail any interview you’re about to have.

1.Research the company you are going to have the interview with 

This may seem pretty obvious but it’s really a must. Knowing the current events, checking websites and having general knowledge about the company is key, as lots of hiring managers are likely to pass on candidates who don’t seem to be prepared enough while answering company related questions. The lack of research shows the lack of interest, therefore ask yourself a question, why would a company want to hire someone who would be happy anywhere?

2. Share your story and relevant skills 

Except studying your resume, you need to show the recruiter what your CV couldn’t. This means only one thing – your personality. Prepare a little story showing your strengths and what inspired you to be where you are today, to apply for that job and why would you be the best candidate for that position. Prepare the list of skills you have that also match company’s needs and present the evidence for it.

3.  Dress to impress 

We don’t have to mention that it only takes 8 seconds to make a first impression. The way you present yourself, your outfit, your hairstyle, make-up – everything matters. Therefore, make sure your clothes are appropriate for an interview, classy and elegant look is recommended, however it depends on the company’s dress code.

4. Pay attention to your body language

During the interview, remember that what you’re saying is just a small part of making a good impression. Your body language is really powerful, so don’t forget to make an eye contact and SMILE! Keep your body language open and friendly and be engaged in the conversation.

5. Follow up 

After the interview, make you sure to send an email to the interviewer thanking them for their time and showing your interest in the job. This will make you more memorable and show why you’re the best person for the job. Make sure to send a note up to 24h after the interview.
