INTERVIEWING SKILLS

Interviewing skills are essential for finding and securing employment. Here are some key steps and tips to improve your job search and interview performance:

Interviewing Skills:

1. Research: Research the company thoroughly. Understand their mission, values, products, and recent news. Familiarize yourself with the industry as well.

2. Practice: Conduct mock interviews with a friend or career counselor. Practice answering common interview questions and explaining your experiences.

3. Dress Appropriately: Dress professionally and appropriately for the position and company culture.

4. Punctuality: Arrive on time for in-person interviews or log in promptly for virtual interviews. Plan for potential technical difficulties in the case of virtual interviews.

5. Body Language: Maintain good posture, make eye contact, and offer a firm handshake (if in person). On video calls, ensure good lighting and camera positioning.

6. Communication Skills: Speak clearly, concisely, and confidently. Avoid using filler words such as “um” and “like.”

7. Ask Questions: Prepare thoughtful questions to ask the interviewer. This shows your interest in the role and company.

8. STAR Method: When answering behavioral questions, use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) method to structure your responses.

9. Tell Your Story: Use your experiences to tell a compelling story about your skills and achievements. Quantify your accomplishments whenever possible.

10. Follow-Up: Send a thank-you email within 24 hours after the interview to express your appreciation and reiterate your interest in the position.

11. Continuous Improvement: If you don’t get the job, request feedback to improve your performance in future interviews.

Remember that job searching and interviewing can be a learning process. The more you practice and refine your skills, the better you’ll become at presenting yourself effectively to potential employers. Additionally, stay adaptable and open to new opportunities, as your ideal job might come from unexpected sources.
