An impressive resume is the first tool to create a good impression. However, it isn’t enough. Employers judge you on the basis of your job experience, presentation and attitude towards different situations as well. Many of us find it difficult to crack an interview. There are times when you question yourself — ‘Why am I rejected in spite of being highly qualified and having several years of work experience?’
In such situations, all you need to do is relax, focus and be positive. Make sure you present yourself in a much better manner. Here are some tips to help you crack a job interview successfully:
1. Do your homework: Research well about that respective company, update yourself with the list of clients they handle and understand the job profile for which you are being interviewed. Most of the employers end up asking this question — ‘What do you know about our company?’ — Answering this question quickly could help you look smart and well-informed.
2. Arrive on time: Make sure you arrive on time for the interview. If possible, arrive fifteen minutes early at the interview venue. It will help you relax and be mentally prepared for the interview with zero stress.
3. Dress code: Make sure you wear a formal outfit for an interview. If the job demands suits, then wear one. It makes you look smart and presentable.
4. Communication skills: Be expressive and a good conversationalist, nowadays you have an opportunity to find out on the web (websites such as writing service online or writing blogs) phrases that work the best. Discuss your job experience and your area of interest. This will help the employer get a clear idea about your strength in any specific area of work.
5. Resume facts: Remember to carry your CV and other important certificates — but show it only when the employer asks for it. Don’t read out your resume, your employer already did so before calling you for an interview. Your employer may just get annoyed for wasting his or her time. Make sure you specify your passion and goals clearly.
6. Be honest: Honesty is the best policy. Organizations always respect the candidates who are honest. If you are trying out the job profile for the very first time, keep a positive and flexible approach to it. Be enthusiastic in exploring new learning opportunities.
7. Salary negotiation: We all expect a good salary hike. Make sure you keep your talks focused on the current market value. Never ask for unrealistic salary hikes.
