A corporate trainer once told me about the quote ‘Choose a job you love and you will never have to work another day in your life’.. It can be your first job or moving on to another position. An interview is the first contact between you and your future prospective employer.
You will need to present a first, best and lasting impression.The first step to getting ready for any interview is to prepare. Read the job description. Read about the roles and responsibilities carefully word by word. You might forget it’s importance, but that’s the work you will be compensated for. It’s the work you will be doing for years together
Drive the conversation
I am letting you in on a tip I learnt from a behavioural skills workshop. Many don’t realise that you can drive the conversation in an interview. Given there are a few guidelines set by the interviewer , you can highlight your strengths which might get the interviewer intrigued to ask questions about.
All the corporate training and development that you have gathered over the years will help you glide through your interview if you present it well. A calm demeanor with the appropriate communication practices will help you land that dream job.
Think on the lines of how much value you can add to the company’s product or service than the value your position can add to your resume. Paychecks can only convince you for so long.
Good luck on your job hunt.
