If you have a job interview approaching, you’ll probably be thinking of ways you can make a lasting impression. Check out these tips to help you impress the employer and to ensure they don’t forget you.
Read Your CV
Before you attend the job interview you should re-read your CV and familiarise yourself with the content. You should know your work experience and key skills inside out. The more you know your CV, the easier it will be to answer questions and it will also help you to convince the employer that you are an expert in your field.
Preparing before a job interview is essential. Read the company website, read through the job description and prepare some questions to ask the employer. Doing this will not only help you to feel more relaxed and confident but it will also demonstrate to the employer that you have a keen interest in working for the company – which will help them to remember you during the selection process.
Know the Interviewer
Sometimes it’s impossible to know who will be interviewing you, but sometimes the employer will tell you who you are going to meet. If this is the case you should go on the company website or Linked In to find out more about the interviewer. By doing a bit of research you may be able to find out a bit about their personality and career background and this can help when it comes to creating conversation during the interview.
Ask What the Next Step Is
Towards the end of the interview you should ask the employer what the next stage of the interview process is. This will help you to make a lasting impression because it demonstrates to the employer your intuition and also your desire to secure the role.
