Build Your Action Plan

Hi. Once an interview has been set for you, it means that you are beginning the path of getting a job. Job interviews can be crucial for landing a job, so as a job seeker you are advised to regularly work on your interviewing techniques in order to make the best impression.
In this video, we will discuss 7 ways to improve your interviewing skills. So, here they are:
  • Good Nonverbal Communication: Talking is not the only way to show your confidence to the interviewer. Posture, eye contact and a firm handshake will also do the job.
  • Listening carefully: Listening to the information given to you by the interviewer and letting them know that you heard what they had to say is very important. Try to match their pace and style of talking.
  • Avoid Talking Too Much: Relate only information regarding the job position applied for and match only skills for that position’s requirement.
  • Using Professional Language: Address your interviewer professionally by not using slang words and staying focused on the business discussion. Don’t refer to age, race, religion or politics.
  • Answering and Asking Questions: Be prepared to prove your ability and skills by not only answering questions effectively, but by asking the right questions that will help you determine if this is the right place for you.
  • Avoid Being Too Familiar: Remember the interviewer is not your friend. Keep it professional and don’t overstep the line of a candidate looking for a job.
  • Having a Good Attitude: Here you should have a balance between confidence and professionalism. Don’t appear desperate and don’t appear too over confidence.
You know you can do the job and now you should let your recruiter believe it too. By building up your self-image using the above suggested 7 steps, you avoid a quick ending to your interview and hopefully guide your path to an awesome job!
