The job search is not easy and sometimes there is some real space between getting interviews. So when you do get them you want to make sure that you make the most of them!
Here are some quick tips before heading to your next interview;
Never be late: A job interview is your first ever contact with the new boss, so be right on time. This will improve their confidence in evaluating your reliability. Your commitment to the job is assessed right from the time you reach the place of interview.
Smartly share experience with previous employer: Your previous employer was not the one worth working for, may be that is the reason you are joining the new employer. But sharing this during the interview would mean you are not fit enough to deal intelligently with diverse professional settings.
Prove your merit: Prove through examples what are you good at. This is the time to show your worth to them. Identify suitable examples from your prior professional experiences in which you were able to show the best of your skills. They want to see you integrate well with their requirements.
Stay away from telling tales: The interviewer lets you speak whatever you want to. This is how they assess your personality. They are not here for you to amuse them and certainly not in the mood at the time of interviewing you. Telling stories and tossing comedy would only put a bad impression on your interviewer. A non-serious conclusion of issues from your side is not something they would expect.
Explore more: If you are determined to find a place with the new employers, show them by asking relevant questions. If you do not show interest in the job details you have applied for, they are not going to think of you as a suitable candidate. They want to know that you realize you will be involved in the state of affairs of the company. Ask intelligent and relevant questions. This will show how genuinely interested you are in earning the job role with them.
Be polite: Never show a single sign of aggressiveness or anger in your behavior. Soft and polite expressions give you a head start in making rapport with the interviewers. Negative behavior will obviously put a negative impression on the interviewer. Be aware of the fact that nobody wants a hostile person in their establishment.
Show your social side: An offensive and ill-mannered person is the one everybody wants to stay away from. A friendly and delightful personality attracts affection and fondness. Same happens when the interviewer finds you as a charming and pleasing person. So be in your best of moods. Showing excessively reserved signs or trying to be unnecessarily blunt reduces keenness among the interviewers for you.
