How To Nail Your Next Interview

How To Nail Your Next Interview

 
Look good, feel good, interview good
Dressing in a professional fashion will enhance your credibility and present you as a serious candidate. Get clothes that you make you feel confident to be in the right state of mind come interview time. 
Research, research, research
Taking some time in the days before your interview to become acquainted with the company and what they’re all about. Find their recent work, learn their priorities and morals, and have a game plan for what you will do to add to their company.
If you're on time, you're late
Arrive for the interview with plenty of time to be prepared for any unexpected hiccups on the journey. You don’t want your career to be hindered by not finding a parking spot or the location itself.
Be on from the moment you enter the door
It isn’t uncommon for an employer to ask the receptionist their thoughts of the applicant, so be your delightful self from the moment you enter the business.
Politeness and poise
Before you start the interview, make sure to extend a handshake and your name to the interviewer. Take note of the interviewer’s name, as this will be nice touch to throw in at the conclusion of your interview.
Make an impression
An interviewer may be talking with dozens of interviewees that day, so doing something to make yourself stand out will be a big step to getting the job. Put yourself in the hiring managers shoes… you probably only want to hire someone who is hungry, prepared, and demonstrates a desire to win.
Exiting the interview
Once the interview is over, shake the hand of the interviewer and thank them using their name (the one you remembered from above). This is a simple touch that can go a long way on making another good impression. In fact, it wouldn’t hurt to say goodbye to that receptionist you met in the beginning either.
The follow up
Understandably it can be frustrating and confusing if you don’t hear back for a few days following an interview, but following up immediately isn’t always the best practice. Be patient and do not follow up too soon or too frequently.
