How to Nail Your Job Interview | Allegiance

June 19, 2017 | Career Blog

Job interviews can be very intimidating, even if you have been interviewed many times. Most people get nervous and struggle through the whole thing, knowing that they just blew their chance at a new and better job. However, by being prepared, there are ways to do better!

Here are some tips to nail your job interview.

  • Do your homework. Learn all about all the company and the position that you are applying for. By knowing some of this information, you are more likely to impress your potential boss.
  • Also, make sure that your resume is tailor made for each job. It can really make a difference if you don’t hand in a very general resume. Your objective should be written after you look at the job listing. It can help to use keywords throughout.
  • Be confident. No matter how scared you feel, you have to act confident. You can do this job (and do it well). Tell yourself whatever you have to, in order to stay calm and confident throughout the interview.
  • Be sure to ask some questions. Though they are going to ask you a lot of questions, it is important to have a few ready to ask them. You appear more interested in the job if you ask at least one or two questions.
  • Dress professionally. One of the best ways to not get a job is by dressing inappropriately. You should always dress like you want to impress.

Interviews can be completely scary and overwhelming. Most people don’t feel confident after an interview. In order to change that, go into the interview prepared. Know about the company and the position. Have some questions to ask too!
