Good Morning everyone!
It's Friday already and, we would like to give you some tips on how to prepare for your interview and get hired!
1. Punctuality and seriousness
Recruiters have busy agendas, so please prepare yourself and be ready, about ten minutes before the interview. Furthermore, the way you behave with the recruiter during the interview will be decisive for the rest of the event. I invite you to use a sustained vocabulary and to be polite to the recruiter. Use an appropriate tone and a sustained vocabulary. In addition, make sure you know the key information about the role.
2. Clarify your "selling points" and the reasons why you want to be hired.
Prepare for each interview by preparing three to five key selling points, such as what makes you the best candidate for the job. Prepare an example of each selling point ("I have good communication skills. If an interviewer doesn't think you're really, really interested in the job, they won't make you an offer - no matter what your background!
3. Anticipate the interviewer's concerns and reservations.
There are always more applicants for jobs than there are positions to fill. So recruiters are looking for ways to screen candidates. Put yourself in their shoes and ask yourself why they might not want to hire you ("I don't have this", "I'm not that", etc.). Then prepare your defence: "I know you may think I wouldn't be the best fit for this job because [their reservation]. But you should know that [the reason the recruiter shouldn't be too concerned]. "
4. Prepare for common interview questions.
- Why do you want the role / What interests you about the role?
- Why should we hire you, and not another of our candidates?
- What are your strengths/weaknesses?
5.Prepare questions for the recruiter.
Come to the interview with some smart questions for the interviewer that demonstrate your knowledge of the company as well as your seriousness. If you say "no, not really," he or she may conclude that you are not at all interested in the job or the company.
You are now ready to tackle your interview! We wish you good luck 😃🍀
