Five Tips To Help You Make A Lasting Interview Impression
During the pandemic, many people found it challenging to get through interviews, with the job hunt being another ordeal. Companies could not keep up with the changes taking place and find a way to get the same amount of productivity from the people working remotely.
Everyone started working on a side hustle and were working on their hobbies and making changes to their homes to find better ways of getting through processes. Interviews conducted in person were now moving to the internet and were done through virtual means. We had many of our clients get in touch with us and ask how to get through these interviews. With marketing also moving online, companies were changing the way they hired and brought in new people. Here are some pointers we recommend that people follow to make the best first impression.
Tip #1: Be on time for your interview
It is mandatory to be on time for a job interview. Not just on time, come early. It will show how punctual you are. Companies love having staff who are go-getters and the same ones willing to put in the additional time so that they can be better than the others on the team.
Tip #2: Research the company
You need to know the company like the back of your hand. Make sure you visit their website and collect information about their history and values. There are some common questions you would be asked in an interview, why this company, what are your long-term plans, you should be prepared to answer those. Go through as much information about the company as possible and have those details ready when you work through them. If you have the information, you might be able to re-work some of the pointers or change sentences, but you are better informed.
Tip #3: Pay attention to your body language
Employers will be looking at your appearance and how you present yourself. Dress sharp and clean. While there are a few changes made to these rules over the last decade, you can never go wrong if you are dressed sharp and know what you are getting into. Dress well, clean up before the meeting or interview and pay attention to the way you behave, even if you are not interested in every aspect of the way it is going.
Tip #4: Be prepared for your interview
If you want to show how serious and motivated you are about the job, always carry your resume and information about your references. You should know what they are talking about and have enough information on how you would have the conversation if you wanted to. If there are questions asked and they are basic, you should have those answers ready to get through.
Tip #5: Give your best you to every person you meet
You should put your best foot forward, be friendly to every employee you meet. The employer might ask employees what they thought about you after your interview. You want to be warm when dealing with others in the office. People tend to talk, and if any changes could influence your chances of getting through, you want to make sure that you gave it your best shot.
