Except good first impression, the way you are dressed,
it’s important how you will respond to questions.
So, here are 10 tips we want you to know:
-Note that we added most common questions at the bottom of the page, but first read this.
1. Prepare for your interview
You should prepare for this very important step in hiring.
If you have previously prepared for an interview,
it’s more likely that your appearance will be confident
which will give the impression you wanted. Dress nicely.
Darker colors highlight the seriousness more than bright.
And don’t late.
2. Don’t use proverbs
Using common saying phrases like ‘you know’ , ‘maybe’ ,
‘I think..’ etc, will show that you are not interested and
they will think you are frivolous person. So, no slangs,
respect the situation you are in.
3. Answer with full sentence
When you are being asked something, always answer
with full sentence, don’t just say ‘Yes’ , ‘No’ , ‘I am’ …
That’s not enough, you are there to show that you are
the right person for this job, to convince them to hire you.
Also, don’t philosophize too much, be yourself…
They expect you to be clear and self confidence person.
4. Have an advantage over other candidates
Before the interview, find out as much as you can about
the employer, its products and services, market and competition,
to better understand their needs and to have an advantage
over other candidates. The first and simplest source of
information is the website of the company, of course,
if there is any. A very useful source of information
are colleagues who work in the company or have worked
before. Ask them to spend some time with you.
5. Show your interests
It carries the potential to excel in various fields
of business and therefore it’s good to show what interests you.
In this case, it is not wrong to show an emotional partiality for
the job you are applying. This will help your potential employer
to know that they are talking to someone who would love the
job that works and that is certainly a big advantage.
6. Do not be insecure
The words you use are those that will allow you to success
in the job you apply when it’s about interview.
And therefore you should avoid words that will reveal
your insecurity, because they will that even you are not
confident in your ability success. In situations when you
are in self doubt you can do something or not, it is ok to admit
and say that you are going to learn.
In this way, you will have the confidence of the
employer and that certainly means a lot.
7. Tell what you are good at
During the interview it is important to show your experience
and knowledge, to behave professionally (this implies that using
grammatically correct sentences, watching employer in the eye,
listening, responding and asking meaningful questions*),
to show enthusiasm you have in a company in which
you would like to work and interest in the work environment
in the company. Also, it is important that you are honest.
*Examples of questions you can ask during an interview:
How does a typical day look in this job?
How does the daily schedule of activities look?
What is in your experience, the hardest part of the job?
Is there a trial period, how long?
Will I get a notification despite the results?
8. Tell about your education and work experience
Nobody is perfect, so even the employers do not expect
to hire someone who has no flaws. It is important that you
do not lie and to show willingness for further training.
Be prepared to confirm all presented documents (diplomas,
work history, resume, letters of recommendation,
certificates of completed courses, driving license, etc.).
9. Be positive
A positive attitude during the job interview can help you
show your confidence and positive energy.
For any questions, (if possible) try to respond in a
positive context, try not to use negation and negative sentence.
Another big advantage is a smile and emotion. (not too much,
of course). It is advised to behave in accordance with the
situation, but this does not mean that you should be stiff
and unsmiling. People who smile carry positive energy in
themselves. Be positive and you will make positive impression.
