How not to fail an interview
Start preparing for a meeting with a potential employer in advance, take a shower, prepare a suit and shoes, select the necessary accessories. Your appearance should be respectable. Do not look too bright or defiant. Business suits of quiet shades are best for an interview. Women should not do overly flashy make-up or wear a lot of jewelry.
Be sure to bring along all the necessary documents: a passport, a diploma, a work book. Print and take a resume with you, even if you already sent it.
Sometimes employers go for a trick and at the very beginning of an interview they ask you to tell a little about yourself. Therefore, it is worthwhile to think in advance of the answer to such a tricky question. The text should not be too large. Start it with the date and place of your birth. Tell me where you got your education, mention the additional courses if they were. More details on work places. First tell us about the latter. Name the organization, the position on which you worked, the main achievements that you had there. In detail it is necessary to tell only about the last 3-4 places of work. All the rest can only be mentioned.
As a rule, employers try not to hire people who are ready for anything to get a job. So do not show too much your desire to work in this organization. If a person has not asked a single question about work, but is already ready to work, this leads to not very pleasant thoughts. Usually people with low self-esteem behave this way. Such employees are trying not to recruit. Be confident in yourself, ask questions about future activities, pay, teamwork.
Do not lie about your previous work. After all, the head will not be difficult to call and make inquiries about your achievements. For questions about the service, answer as truthfully and openly as possible. Do not withhold information. Even if you were fired, report it.
During the interview most of the time, look at the employer in person. Do not take your eyes away, this indicates that the person is hiding something. Do not take closed poses. The hands folded on the chest, or crossed legs, too, will not testify in your favor.
Imagine yourself in the employer's place. Think about what you would like your future subordinate to be. Try to match the image that you got.
