5 Interview Tips to Help you get the Job

Okay, okay. You’ve probably heard them all before. There are lots of interview tips out there. What makes us different?

Well, we’ve looked through those tips. Here are the little things that we haven’t seen before.

1. Act like an interviewer

We don’t mean you should act like an interviewer in your actual interview (though you should definitely have questions prepared for when it’s appropriate to ask). What we want you to do is look into techniques for being an interviewer. Just like there are tips for you, there are tips for them. An interviewer might be giving away what they are looking for based on the questions they ask. This will help you answer to the best of your ability.

2. Find your weakness

What question are you afraid to answer? Why? Get to the bottom of it and make sure you practice the answer to that question. Don’t just hope it won’t come up. It will. So be ready.

3. Pick your time slot

What is your best time of day? When do you feel most alert? Some job interviews have a little leeway as to when you can schedule your interview. Try to make it work to your best advantage. And don’t forget to allow yourself plenty of time to get there.

4. Ask who will be interviewing you

Is it a guy, a girl, a panel, the CEO? This might just be a good thing to know before you walk into the room. It will keep you from being surprised. Also, if it’s someone high up in the company, you may want to do a little research on what their role is.

5. Have references ready, but not with you

You should definitely line up recommendations from you work history, however, it isn’t necessary to bring those recommendations with you. The interviewer or company will follow up on that if they deem it necessary, you don’t have to worry about it.
