Today Job Vacancies are very hard to come by and for this reason you need to give yourself the best chance of success possible. There are many things you can do in order to achieve this. Be sure to research the job properly. Finding out everything you can about the business and their services and products will give you an added advantage. This means that if you are asked about the company and products you will be able to confidentially answer any questions. Remember to always have a least one extra copy of your CV in your briefcase. You never know when you may need it.
While busy with the interview always maintain eye contact. Apart from displaying honesty, it gives off the impression that you are a confident and focused person. Be enthusiastic about and interested in the company and what what they do. They will want to know that you will be enthusiastic about the opportunity on offer and being part of the team.
You should always dress for success. The professional look will go a long way to securing your future. You may dress formally or informally, depending on the type of vacancy. If you feel unsure, rather stick with formal attire. However, you should definitely look groomed and presentable.
When asked questions, do not drone on. Similarly, do not spit out one-word answers. You do not want to lose the attention of the person who is doing the interview, usually the HR manager.
Pay attention when you are asked questions. You want to give the right answers. If the question is unclear, then get the interviewer to clarify so that the right answer is delivered. Discuss your record of accomplishment in terms of your working history. Let the interviewer know how your past experience will benefit the company. Give the person conducting the interview scenarios whereby you can demonstrate the value you can bring to their organization.
Do not be afraid to ask questions. Relevant questions will show you are serious about your career and that you are discerning about your future with the company. About two days after the interview, send a thank you note to the interviewer. Let them know that you will be interested in the job and thank the HR person for his or her time. If you decided to decline the position, thank them anyway. You never know what doors can be opened by this act of courtesy.
Before going for an interview, it may be an idea to try to get into the mind of the HR manager. Role-play and be the interviewer dig deep to see what you would look for if you were the one offering the position. These ideas can go a long way to help you when researching Job Vacancies.
