Your first job interview is a critical part of your nontraditional job search. You’ve narrowed your choice to a single job. You’ve convinced someone that you’re qualified. And now you’ve landed an interview.
There may be an initial phone interview. Then you may be invited to one-on-one or group interviews. Some of today's tips apply primarily to face-to-face interviews, but most also apply to telephone and video sessions.
It is important to prepare sufficiently for the interview. This preparation includes:
- Adopting the right attitude
- Understanding the organization and the job
- Knowing that performing well may take practice (i.e., attending several interviews)
We could spend several hours discussing this topic. But today we'll start with 8 tips for you to consider.
- Bring a copy of your resume to every interview
- Dress properly and present the right body language
- Do your research
- Be prepared to clarify your "selling points"
- Line up your questions for the interviewers.
- Start with a positive statement and stay positive/never complain
- Be assertive but not pushy
- Close with CLARITY
You can learn the specific details of each tip by listening to today's interview. There will also be a transcript in the show notes.
