How Can I Promote Myself In A Job Interview?
The job hunt is an exhausting and demanding time. It requires diligence, effort, and a little bit of hope. When you finally do get the chance to represent yourself in a face-to-face interview, don’t let the opportunity go to waste. Prepare the necessary questions and responses before your interview to ensure that you’re promoting yourself most effectively.
DO YOUR RESEARCH
Before you walk into your interview, do your research on that company so that you’re best prepared for the interview. A better understanding of the company will help you ask more informed questions about the position and make you appear more interested. Preparedness is the key to any great interview.
DRESS FOR SUCCESS
Plan a wardrobe that fits the organization and its culture. Strive for a professional appearance without sacrificing your personal style. Remember that it’s always best to overdress rather than underdress, and ensure that your shirt or skirt is ironed and clean.
BE ON TIME
Arriving early not only shows your prospective employer that you’re serious about the position, but it gives you time to collect your thoughts and mentally prepare for the interview. Plan the day accordingly, and ensure that you’ve printed off copies of your resume and CV to hand to the interviewer if he/she asks.
CLOSE THE DEAL
During the interview, you’re selling an idea of yourself to a prospective employee. Prove why you’re the best choice by believing that it’s true. Allow your confidence and knowledge of the field to shine, and put the cherry on top by asking questions about the next steps in the hiring process.
