How to pass a job interview?

The job interview is the final step towards becoming an employee in the company you are applying in. You can pass that interview by researching about the company, wearing proper business attire, arriving early and keeping calm in front of the interviewer.
 

Treat it as an ordinary conversation

No matter how daunting and crucial interviews can be, your best answer can come out when you are calm and focused. You should treat this as an ordinary conversation.

Wear proper business attire

By doing so, you will not only show respect to the interviewer - you will also create the impression that you really mean business. Opt for dark or neutral-colored tailored suits.

Research about the company

It pays to learn more about the company you are applying to - their vision, mission, strengths, weaknesses and the products or services they provide. This way, you can engage in an active conversation with the hiring manager and impress him with your knowledge as well.

Arrive early

Arriving early gives you the time to catch your breath, freshen up and review your notes. Most applicants who turned up rushing to the interviewer’s door, wiping their sweat and gasping for breath never got the job.

Keep calm

Being nervous can cause mental block. When this happens, you won’t be able to focus on the interviewer’s questions and even make you forget about all the research and preparation you did for the interview. Breathe deeply, stay calm and keep your focus

Learn as much as you can about the position

A lot of people try to learn about the company but forget about the job. It is a job interview and therefore, they are looking for someone with the most knowledge and skill regarding the opening.

Practice answering open-ended questions

Prepare answers to open-ended questions like “Tell me more about yourself” or “How can the company benefit from you” because these are the types of questions that are commonly asked during interviews.

Accentuate your strengths during the interview

it is normal to get jitters during the interview, but whatever happens, always make sure that you have provided them with reasons to hire you.

Never look at your watch

Do not ever look at your watch even when the interviewer is taking all the time in the world to make his coffee or read a newspaper. Chances are, he is just testing your patience or making you feel nervous to see how well you could handle yourself under such a circumstance.
