At the interview, shake hands with the employer.
Don’t shake his hand too hard, but don’t let go too easily either. The handshake should be balanced. If you don’t know how to do it, practice it with the right intensity with a friend.
Throughout the interview, maintain eye contact with the interviewer, but don’t abuse it. At the same time, it’s important to have the right body language and tone of voice. Maintain your professionalism and don’t become too familiar with the interviewer, even if they have a very relaxed attitude.
Answer the employer’s questions to the best of your ability. Ask questions too.
If you don’t know how to answer a question, say you will find out and come back with the right answer. If you need time to think, repeat part of the employer’s question to prepare your answer. And if you think you’re wrong on a question, don’t miss it! It is important to give the most appropriate answers to the following.
Pay attention to everything the employer tells you and ask questions if you have one. This will show that you are genuinely interested.
Here are some questions you can ask your interviewer:
How open is this position within the company?
What would a successful month, quarter or year look like in this position? What would be an outstanding accomplishment for someone in this role?
What are some of the most common issues and challenges I might encounter in this position?
What are the next steps in this interview?
Be prepared for tests and trials from the first meeting.
There are no typical job interviews. You may be invited to a meeting with a recruiting firm, a committee or a single interviewer.
