Interview rules of conduct
Interviewing is a kind of check. The employer looks at you, and you - to him. Therefore, communication plays a very important role here. At the interview, the employer may have sympathy or antipathy towards certain candidates. And often the work is not the one who prepared the best resume, but the one who showed himself on the good side of the interview.
Attitudes towards a person are formed even before he went into the room for negotiations. Arrange the employer or HR-manager to yourself at the stage of a phone call. Communicate politely and correctly, be sure to thank for the call. If you sent a CV to several companies, it is possible that some of them you will forget. Do not show your forgetfulness when calling with an invitation for an interview - you can see information about the company later. It is also not very correct to ask the employer how to get to the place of work. For this, there are Internet maps with automatic routing.
Before you come for an interview, study information about the company, its history and goals. This will allow you to better represent the tasks performed.
As for delays - no one is insured against them. Late for an interview can seriously set the employer against you, but if you are still late, be sure to report it. It is better to do this on the phone than by SMS. Be sure to explain the reason for the delay and tell me when about you will be.
When going for an interview, pay attention to the external appearance. You should look business-like, but not too boring. An attractive appearance is quite capable of locating to you an employer or HR manager. In order not to get into an embarrassing situation, dress appropriately for the company and the position you are applying for. Agree that the dress code for a children's animator and a bank employee is very different. Nevertheless, there are several universal rules: say "no" to sportswear and shoes, causing appearance, untidy clothes. Do not go for an interview with large bags or packages.
So, you are on an interview. The most important stage has come. What it will be depends on the employer and company policy. Somewhere with you just talk, and in another place they will be asked to perform test tasks or show their professional worthiness. The main thing here is to be benevolent and not to worry. Remember that the employer is not an evil beast who wants to eat you, but only a living person with whom you can and should communicate. You can even joke or tell an interesting story from your life, if you see that it is appropriate. And here's what you do not exactly need to do: be rude, shut up in yourself, unnecessarily nervous, refuse to answer questions, interrupt the employer, be arrogant.
In advance, think over the answers to the interview of the employer. Most often ask about the experience of work, life goals, main advantages and disadvantages, especially major achievements.
After the employer has spoken to you, you can ask questions of interest. After the interview, you must clearly understand the schedule of work, requirements and responsibilities, the reporting procedure, the number of people in the subordination and the post of direct superior, the order of registration and the level of salary. Ask if paid vacation and sick leave are provided, how bonuses are awarded and whether you will not have to stay for processing. Do not hesitate to ask about money - this is the main goal of your work. And remember, if at the interview you realized that the work does not suit you, just tell the employer about it. It's better than promising to think, and then do not answer the calls. Good luck finding you!
