Any tips on acing a job interview?

 

Job interviews can be stressful! Here are 10 tips to help lessen the stress and let your fabulous self shine through:

  1. Look Confident—extend a firm handshake, stand up straight and make eye contact
  2. Listen carefully and let the interviewer know you heard what was said. If you don't understand a question, ask for more information.
  3. Be careful not to ramble…telling the interviewer more than they want or need to know
  4. Dress to fit the position and culture of the company where you're applying. And keep other senses in mind—too much cologne or the smell of smoking can be a turnoff.
  5. Provide specific examples of your methods of handling situations to demonstrate your abilities and skills.
  6. Stick to the business at hand and don't try to be too familiar. You're not trying to make a new friend.
  7. Avoid slang words or references to sex, age or race.
  8. Check your can-do attitude at the door and don't appear to be too cocky
  9. Be ready to ask questions. This demonstrates that you're interested in the company and helps you decide if it's a good fit for you.
  10. Stay cool, calm and collected and don't give the interviewer the impression that you're desperate. You deserve this job and believing that will let just the right amount of confidence shine through.
