Tips for a successful job interview

UNIside | 2022-09-23
The actual job search always starts with job interviews, where you need to try to put your best foot forward to succeed - just like on an important romantic date! We've put together the four most important points for you.

Be up to date!

Just reading the job ad will not be enough to make you stand out from the other applicants. Before the interview, do a thorough research of the place, the position of which you are applying for! Look online to find out exactly what that particular company does and how they do it! Check their social media pages, if they have any, so that you’re not caught by surprise during the interview.

Practice the situation!

This is especially important if you tend to get nervous. Practice your answers to typical (or not so typical) interview questions! Figure out exactly what you’re going to say when asked about your experiences, hobbies or goals, be focused and speak selectively!

Be engaging!

In job interviews, as in other situations, your appearance and body language make the first impression, so it’s very important to pay due attention to this as well. In general, you should dress elegantly for interviews, but of course your outfit will depend on the quality of the job. Try to show positivity and don’t talk negatively about your previous employer, as this can easily backfire!

Ask questions!

There is almost always an opportunity to ask questions at job interviews, but many people wouldn’t take advantage of this, even though it’s worth it! Asking questions is not a sign of ignorance, it shows that you are serious about getting the job.
