Job Interview: the Dos
Here’s a few things you should definitely keep in mind while sitting opposite your interviewer.
Use your voice
Avoid the formal, public speaking voice. Being yourself will allow you to show the authentic, confident individual you are.
Answer questions honestly
It’s perfectly acceptable to admit lack of experience on a specific subject. Direct the conversation towards your positive attitude for learning and developing.
Discuss your achievements
In your answers, implement your professional and academic successes and where possible back them with facts and figures.
Show your Engagement
Use the interviewer's name, show that you’re listening and have real interest in the conversation.
What’s your day-to-day going to be? What potential does the position have? Asking questions shows you care. Feel confident in doing it.
Stand while you wait
Standing in the boardroom will allow you to feel more confident, as you will be on the interviewers’ level when you first meet them.
Show your hands
Showing your hands in a calm manner during an interview can be perceived as a sign of openness and honesty. Make sure you have a manicure!
