Four Tips for a Better Interview
Posted August 29, 2012on:
Have a conversation. Just giving answers to questions makes you seem boring. So try answering their questions with a brief story or adding more detail. You’ll come across as more engaging, and that’s a good thing.
Be positive. No employer wants to hire a complainer. So even when describing a bad experience or challenging work relationship, don’t gripe or complain. Instead, talk about how much you learned from the experience and how you’re glad for the challenge.
Don’t beg. No matter how much you want or need the job, begging will only make you seem desperate. Remember, employers don’t hire for charity; they hire to solve their problems.
Ask good questions. Prepare some questions to ask ahead of time and be sure to ask them. Good questions are often as valuable as good answers.
Plan and do your homework, and you can shine in any interview.
