How to successfully pass an interview
Don't be late. You should be ready to unpleasant situations including traffic jams or breakage of the transport. Moreover, there is a risk that you will not find the right office. If the applicant is not on time for an interview, albeit for a good reason, it puts him in a bad light in the eyes of employers and significantly reduces the chances of getting the desired position.
Work on your appearance. Even if the company where you want to work, the staff often dress in free style, you should come to the interview dressed strictly and neat. During a conversation with the employer, try to keep calm: don't pick at the hair and buttons, do not wrinkle the fabric of the clothes.
Answer questions confidently, briefly and clearly. No need to say too much or deviate from the topic. If in moments of excitement you used to talk a lot, try to calm down before the interview. Partly this will help you in a small rehearsal: imagine the conversation with the employer and aloud answer a few standard questions: for example, about your previous place of work, relations with colleagues and superiors, skills and abilities.
Remember that at the interview you basically have to answer questions, not ask them. However, several questions should be prepared in advance. They should not be silly or embarrassing. For example, you can ask why a job opening, but you should not ask for that dismissed former employee and that he did not. Questions can also touch on work schedule, benefits package and other important points.
Respond to sensitive issues calmly and confidently. Many of these moments can be calculated in advance: for example, applicants are asked about the reasons for dismissal from previous work, disruption of work, plans for family life.
Don't say anything bad about your previous job. Unfortunately, job seekers sometimes speak negatively about a former company or boss, in an effort to emphasize that the new employer they value above, however, the representatives of the firms, especially the large ones, know well the price of such words. For negative reviews, they can see the conflict of the applicant, its inability to work with people with severe, poorly developed professional quality.
Be moderately honest. If you are asked about any skill that you do not possess, it is better to say that you are ready to learn it, but do not lie, as if it already exists in the list of your skills.
