You know to prepare for a job interview, but how prepared should you be?
To stand out, this infographic suggests that dressing professionally, arriving early, and learning basic information about the company is just the start. We’ve shared job interview tips before, but this infographic goes beyond typical advice to help you ace your next job interview.
First, you probably already know to research the company before your interview, but also consider reviewing internal position titles and what they mean. Doing a background check ahead of time could be prevent problems, and searching for recent company news might give you a leg up.
During the interview, make sure your handshake isn’t too firm or too weak, remember to sit up straight and keep responses short, but engaging. Be prepared for any type of question—according to this infographic some jobseekers have been asked unusual things like, “have you ever stolen a pen from work?” and “what’s your favorite song? Perform it for us now.” If you are asked, “tell me more about yourself”, one suggestion is to respond with four summarized topics within a few minutes: your early years, education, work history, and recent career experience.
Follow the interview with some of your own questions, but it might be better to wait to ask about things like salary, vacation time, bonuses, or other benefits until later. Finally, consider sending a thank you note after the interview to show your enthusiasm and leave a lasting impression. Read on below for more tips:
