So … You have an invitation for an interview. Congratulations!
But before you succeed in this meeting, let us share some tips with you.
Before the interview you should research the company. Did you know, that 47% of hiring managers expelled candidates after interviews because they knew next to nothing about the company?
43% of hiring managers report that cultural fit is the single most influential factor in determining which candidate gets the job.
Be sure you have a clear idea of how well you’re going to relate with the people you’re interviewing with, and plan accordingly.
During the interview 33% of hiring managers say they know within the first 90 seconds of an interview whether or not they’ll make a job offer to the candidate.
So you should prepare creative, insightful questions and craft your personal story.
70% of hiring managers say they’ve eliminated candidates after an interview because they thought they were too fashionable or trendy.
Choose a more casual office style for the interview so your clothes won’t distract from the main goal.
Whether it will be online or offline interview, turn off all your devices that could disturb you during the meeting.
Furthermore, you should also come to interview a bit earlier (5-10 minutes). Map out your route to the interview location so you can be sure to arrive on time. The same goes for online interview: join meeting earlier and try to tune in to it.
During the interview don’t forget about non-verbal language.
The most difficult part of job seeking is waiting for the feedback after an interview.
If you did not ask about the deadline for feedback during the interview, you may get frustrated by not receiving a response after a few days.
You just walked out of a job interview. You gave great answers to all the interview questions. You nailed it
But you’re not done yet. In fact, most hiring managers pay very close attention to how well you write a thank you message after the interview.
