What you can do to better your odds for a job
Winning an interview is actually winning a job where you can thrive and grow professionally. How can you do that? There are a hundred ways you can better your odds of winning an interview but only a few can actually land you a job that you are naturally inclined to. Besides, what good is a job if you are having problems to perform best its tasks? A good job fit is indeed an integral part in employment.Here are some of the key ways you can ensure that you both win an interview and a job which you can excel in.
Complete grasp of your resume inputs
Always take time to internalize what you have written in your resume. Exacting recruiters know your resume inside out and they usually have a copy in their hands when they are interviewing you. Be sure you can recall what you put in there including the dates, your transition from one job to the next, your key accomplishments from each designation you held in the past.
Compelling professional story
To win an interview you must have a very good professional “run”, a convincing track record of your field of specialty. How can you actually achieve this? First of all you need to be able to convey your key professional decisions and how this proved to be advantageous to your previous employer/s. You simply help the interviewer piece up your work experience in such a way that he or she can have a good hold of your employment past and enough for him to visualize your employment future. A resume cannot do this on its own and it is up to you to carefully tell your story through the answers you provide to the interviewer. Your story will be assessed in relation to the job you wish to fill so be sure each input you provide in your story adds all up in such a way that recruiters can see your future performance and how you can positively contribute to the business of the company.
Confidence in the way you speak and answer questions can tell recruiters a lot of things about you. First of all is that you are showing to recruiters that you are sure of yourself and you have the right attitude and bearing for the job. Nervousness can mean you are not convinced of yourself and that you have doubts how you performed professionally so far. Again it is all about impressions. Confidence comes naturally when you understand the job you are applying for and that you know you are the best man for it. In a very fierce job market you need to stand out and this is the best way to do just that.
Coming in prepared
You need to come in an interview mentally and physically prepared. Coming into an interview with only a few hours sleep can easily manifest itself in the quality of your responses and your ability to hold an engaging conversation. Having enough sleep also give you clarity of thought and a stable mood. You also need to come in appropriate attire. How you look and how you interact during the duration of the interview is a reflection of your level of professionalism. Remember that first impressions do last so make sure you come in to be unforgettable.
