The Job Search: Here Are 11 Best Interview Tips To Help You Land That Job

  1. Research the employer, your interviewers, the job and the market or industry.
  2. Prepare for the interview by reviewing common interview questions and your responses. Practicing in front of a mirror and recording your responses helps to let you know how you sound and to identify areas for improvement.
  3. Make a good first impression. Plan out a wardrobe that fits the organization and its culture, striving for the most professional appearance you can accomplish. Remember that it’s always better to be overdressed than under dressed
  4. Arrive on Time, Relaxed and Prepared for the Interview. As a good practice, arrive 15 minutes early.
  5. Tidy up your social media pages and ensure that they portray you in a professional light.
  6. Do not speak negatively about your previous employers.
  7. Respond truthfully to the questions asked. Tie your answers back to your skills and accomplishments. Keep your answers concise and focused.
  8. Have a positive attitude and express enthusiasm for the job and employer when answering questions.
  9. Practice good manners and body language. While the content of your interview responses is paramount, poor body language can be a distraction at best or a reason not to hire you at worst.
  10. Prepare some good questions to ask your interviewers. Insightful questions show that you did your research and that you are enthusiastic about the job.
  11. After the interview, remember to follow up with a thank-you email, letting the interviewer know it was nice to meet them and that you look forward to hearing back soon.
