It is very important to create the right impression at interview, as first impressions really do count. Be sure to know the following:
As we have already mentioned, first impressions REALLY DO COUNT, so we advise you to wear a dark suit to interview and put your best foot forward. Positivity and confidence are very attractive qualities in a candidate.
Your interviewer will be making an instant judgement and forming their opinion of you within the first few minutes, so the way you look is very important and will enable you to shine through, leaving a lasting impression in all the right ways.
Do ensure that you tailor your CV for different jobs. Keep it simple, no more than three pages. Don’t leave gaps in your CV – missing years in your work history may be viewed with suspicion. It is essential that you include the following on your CV:
Right… you are looking smart, all ready to face your interviewer head-on and then suddenly, they utter those immortal words of:
“So, tell me about yourself…”
This question can strike fear into the hearts of the bravest and most experienced candidates, as this is very often the first question that the interviewer will ask.. So it is ESSENTIAL that you get this right. Typical answers should really cover your Education, Work Experience and your most recent position. Keep your answers to just over 60 seconds. There will be more time to develop on this later on in the interview.
“What do you know about our company?”
This is where you can tell the employer that you have done your research on the company, using their website as a vital tool. Tell the employer about the website and how you found it to navigate around. The employer will not expect you to know everything about the company, but you should know what they do, maybe key or feature dates that have been important to them. You can of course use this opportunity to ask the interviewer to develop on what they can tell you about the company in their terms.
“Why should I employ you?”
This question will naturally come towards the end of the interview, so you should already be feeling very comfortable with your interviewer in answering them directly and concisely. Accentuate the positives about the company and highlight your interest in what they do and how this is something that you would like to explore. This could be the branding/image of the company that attracts you, their reputation and also that you feel you could really give 100% to this employer, should they decide to take you on. Highlight your availability and how quickly you could start with them.
