I have gathered up some tips from a human resource manager with 25 years working experience and gathered help ful tips
So here are the tips I have for you today:
1. Research: The first thing I’m going to say is research, research, research. You basically have to find out what the company or organization does, their motto,
what they stand for, their values, everything really. This is actually very necessary, guys because you can’t even answer the questions appropriately or even ask any questions if you wanted to.
2. Take a copy of your CV or portfolio: Depending on the job and your field, you should actually take a copy of your portfolio or CV to know, impress your prospective employers. Even if you don’t have a portfolio, take a copy of your CV to the interview
so you’ll look serious in a way. Besides, it helps to fill up your bag or briefcase so it doesn’t seem empty.
3. Be prepared: When I say be prepared I mean you should be prepared for questions they might ask you. No interview might be the same, I know but there are some particular questions that you just have to be prepared for. An example of a question that reoccurs a lot is What do you have to offer the organisation/company So something like that, you have to really be prepared for.
4. Take a notepad and a pen: I know this is like being too efficient but sometimes it’s necessary to be efficient. You don’t necessarily have to take the notepad but that pen is actually very necessary but if you want to be extra like me, you’re free to take the
notepad. Just don’t forget the pen. You might need to jot down something and of course you need a notepad and a pen for that. It’d be nice to whip out your note pad and pen all prepared looking like the person for the job.
5. Dress the part: If you’re going for a job interview, please dress the part. More often than not, the dress code is smart or formal or at least smart casual. I’ve seen people wear jeans to job interviews and I just wonder what exactly is going on this world. You can’t wear
jeans to a job interview for a corporate position and expect to make a very excellent first impression on your prospective employer.
So there you have it: five job interview tips .
isn’t quite common. So enjoy!
