With the recruitment market now more competitive than it has been for some time, you need to give employers even more reasons to pick you when you get to the key stage of being asked to interview.
The first 30 seconds of a job interview are really key to your success. Here are a few helpful tips on what to expect and things to think about for your job interview.
Job Interview checklist
Rightly or wrongly, looks can make a difference, be smart and look professional. give consideration to the company you are applying to - how do your potential future co-workers dress for work? If you already dress in a similar way then you're on the way to fitting in at your desired new job!
It is key to keep in mind that you never get a second chance to make a good first impression, so make sure you're prepared. Aim to arrive 20-25 minutes before your appointed interview time, that way if your bus is late or you get stuck in traffic you'll still arrive bang on time. If you arrive early, you could wait nearby at a restaurant or have a short walk round the area thinking about what you plan to say in your interview. Aim to arrive at reception exactly 10 minutes before your scheduled interview time.
Eye contact is one of the most important aspects while on your interview and can make a real difference in how you come accross. If you always look away when speaking to someone, you may well be seen as lacking confidence or not interested or worse still being dishonest. So always answer the questions with eye contact, but don't stare so hard it looks odd!.
During your job interview always be enthusiastic. Do not be negative or mention any bad points about previous employers. Focus on positive achievements and optimistic views, always smile and be attentive.
The fact is that that you are unlikely to be offered every job that you apply for, however well suited you think you may be for it.
If you do not get the job after an interview it is time well spent to retrace the stages of the interview with someone and try to have them to identify any areas where you could have done better. There will be other opportunities in time and any failed interviews should be looked upon as part of a learning process.
Don't forget that performing well at an interview is a skill and it can be learnt and improved with help and practice. There are plenty jobs in and around Poole - the main thing is to find the right one for you!
AllPooleJobs wish you the best of luck with you job hunting!
