What do you do hours before that big and important job interview? Do you think you are completely ready to face the volley of shots fired by the employer? If you have these recurring questions in your mind every time a big job interview comes around the corner, then this article can help you. High profile job interviews can always give anyone sleepless nights and morning jitters. But if you follow these following tips and keep them in mind, your job interview would turn out to be a great and memorable one.
- Prep up the chemistry element – Instead of visually analyzing how the interview might go, practice on creating the chemistry element between you and your employer. The art of bonding with the employer needs to be just perfect and you should never make the mistake of going over the line. Politely answering questions, smiling, nodding your head go towards excellent employer-candidate bonding.
- Revise your resume – Carry around a few printed copies of your resume and revise through them again just to make sure that there are no untoward mistakes. Errors in your experience or even spelling mistakes can greatly influence a job interview.
- Do proper homework – Not researching on the company is a major blunder that most candidates make. Do a thorough research and homework, collecting all the background information about the company so that you can correctly answer your employer’s questions about the company and the sector in general.
- Punctuality is the key – Remember to always reach the office at least 30 minutes prior to the interview. Assume that there are going to be traffic problems and that you may get stuck in the jam. Entering the interview room 10-15 minutes late and dripping with sweat is not exactly the picture your employer may want to see.
Relax and always remember that there are more options to come. Take deep breaths and walk into the interview room with a confident and self assured mindset.
