It's important to prepare for a job interview. There are lots of web sites that have practice interviews and quite a few books about them, too. Those resources are definitely worth using to prepare for an interview, but there is something else that is even more important.
People have a tendency to really get stressed out, just trying to have a perfect interview. When you realize that there is no such thing as a "perfect interview," you will be much better prepared than if you memorized all the possible answers to all the possible interview questions.
The job interviewer is going to be looking for some basic information about you from the interview. And, they will know in the first five minutes. How?
- By your grooming and your dress
- By your handshake
- By your eye contact
- By your manners
- By your self-confidence
- By your personality
- By your ability to express yourself
None of these things has anything to do with your experience, grades, interests, or ability to do the job. The interviewer will already knew enough about most of those things from your résumé or job application. What they get in the first few minutes of the interview is an idea of what you will be like to work with and how well you will actually do what you are capable of doing.
Work on improving these seven areas and you will definitely improve your chances in any job interview you may have.
