No matter how good you think you are when it comes to public speaking and interpersonal skills, we all still get the jitters every time we face an interview. The tension keeps getting higher especially if the interview is for a job position that you have long set your goals to. You fear that you may mess up so sometimes your nerves get the best of you. Dr Muzzafar Zaman, a British PhD professor with decades of human resource background, has gathered some of the best tips to nail every job interview that would come your way.
Preparation is everything
As Dr Muzzafar Zaman would put it, there is no such thing as losing in an interview when you have prepared everything on your part. He pointed out that an interviewee needs to go through all the details of the documents sent to the human resource department. There should not be any false information because it could be a major issue when the interviewer asks you and you have completely no idea about the question on hand. Think of possible questions beforehand based on the details of your submissions and answer them on your own.
Looking good with the best version of yourself
A long and good sleep will bring you to mood, readying you for the interview as added by Dr Muzzafar Zaman. When you do not feel stressed and consumed with anxiety, it is when you feel most confident so you can answer the questions the best way possible. Make sure that your clothes are properly pressed. Make sure that you wear smart-looking business attire based on the level or nature of the formality that the company sets. Ensure that the colour combination does not appear off to anyone. An effective tool to look good is to have an always-positive attitude, bringing vibrant aura and smiles everywhere.
Professionalism and honesty during the interview
Sometimes, your answers to the interviewers’ questions have less bearing than the manner of how you deliver them. Make sure that you maintain eye contact with them to show your sincerity. Always answer the questions with all honesty so people would not have second thoughts on the way you respond to them. Show your interests about the company by making extra effort in researching details about it. Employers would feel impressed over someone who is already acting like they are part of the company even if they are yet being interviewed.
