Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance

When walking a recruiter through your resume, be sure to highlight your accomplishments, emphasizing what you bring to the table. Highlight your strengths to allow the interviewer develop a comprehensive view of who you are and why you’re the right candidate for the position. Show confidence in your knowledge and ability, so your prospective employer will have faith in your capability to execute the job duties.

Research Your Prospective Employer

Research and preparation are essential to a successful job interview. Give yourself an advantage by researching the company to get a clear idea of its history, mission, products and services, financials, and culture. Then prep some questions to ask during the interview; there’s nothing worse than being asked “Do you have any questions?” and realizing that you don’t.

Rehearse Your Interview

Grab a friend and practice a few scenarios and hypothetical question and answers that you may be asked during the interview to maximize your chances. Get a friend who will honestly identify your areas for improvement.

Dress For Success

You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Invest in a few outfits that are appropriate and professional to complement your qualifications and increase your chances of getting hired.

Now all that’s left to do is practice your handshake, maintain eye contact and smile. Good luck!
