Interviewing Tips to Land Your Dream Job

By The Intersect Group

All interviews typically follow the same format.  You have the initial meet and greet, followed by the interview session, but there are a few tips you should follow to ensure that your interviewer is left with a strong impression of you and the benefits you will bring to their company.

Conduct yourself with confidence and determination to get the job.  You have other options and your interviewer knows this, but wants to think that you want a job with their company.  Don’t play coy and make sure you sell yourself and your skills.  Present a positive attitude to the prospective employer and don’t seem disinterested or appear to be job shopping.

  • An interview is a two-way conversation and it is expected for you to ask the interviewer questions.  This will show your interest in the company and the position.  Asking questions also enables you, as the interviewee, to gather the right information to make an intelligent decision.  The questions that you’ve prepared prior to the interview can be posed to each person that you meet.
  • Remember that the objective of the interview is to obtain an offer.  Therefore, it is imperative that during the interview you gather enough information concerning the position to make a good decision.
  • It is to your advantage if a subject of mutual interest arises, but do not fake knowledge.  Be yourself.  Poise, confidence, and self-respect are of great importance.

An interview can be stressful and it’s important to make a good impression, following these tips will bring you one step closer to obtaining that job offer.
