You've just landed an interview for your ideal job. Congratulations! How will you prepare for this interview and not stress out about it? This is your only chance at impressing them, will you be someone that sticks out in their mind or just another applicant? Let us help you become well prepared walking into that "daunting" interview and increase your chances of getting your dream job.
5. Wear A Suit That Suits You Well.
There is nothing wrong with wearing that suit your dad bought you for your first job interview, however, this one is the real deal now, so you need to step it up. Getting suits that are custom fit for your body type not only make you feel confident, it sets you up for wearing other small accessories that make you stay on the Interviewer's radar. There's one more secret behind custom suits; do your research and find a local Suit Shop, not chain retailers that couldn't care less how you look in your new suit. The stand alone suit guys are the ones who have the history and knowledge behind custom men's apparel and will work with you to ensure you love the way you look.
4. Time Is Valuable.
Lets face it, the person conducting the interviews has to do a lot of them and then spends time going back to see who the best candidate is for the position. This is very time consuming work and often tedious. So don't be 'that guy' who's late for everything, wear a watch that you can tell time on, you never know if it could strike up more conversation. Researchers also say by wearing a watch you seem more punctual and reliable . Choose a watch that is somewhat flashy but doesn't break the bank.
3. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!
As they like to say, do your homework. You should know enough about the company to be able to confidently highlight a recent press release about them or be able to bring up an interesting fact that they have on their website. By doing this little technique, it shows the interviewer that you have came prepared and you can be trusted to do your own research. Also, by doing your due diligence you may find out more facts about the company that could sway your decision of actually working for them.
2. Be Aware of Your Body Language.
The way you carry yourself and present information speaks more about you than physical words do. Conduct practice scenarios with a friend or family member and see if they can pick up on your body language. When you go into your interview, make sure you are sitting with good posture, keeping your body and arms open. Sitting with an open posture shows that you are attentive and are willing to take in everything that the Interviewer is saying. If you have your arms folded or are slouched over, this shows that you are reserved and may not really be interested in what's going on.
