Your personality in an interview can manifest itself in every little detail, but don’t let this stress you out. Otherwise, your anxiety and nervousness will show.
Remember to stay focused and calm, and follow the following five guidelines for displaying positive energy and enhancing your personal development.
You may not know everything the interviewer asks, but this is a great opportunity to show your personal side, especially your desire to learn and contribute as much value as possible.
Showing professional development
There are two main components in this area: research and practice. Below are four tips for conducting research prior to the interview.
Practice is also key. Be able to describe a situation, the task at hand, what you did, and then the result. Practice what you are going to say by looking at yourself in a mirror and saying it. Say it again in the shower. Say it again before you go to sleep.
Be explicit and concise and emphasize the skills and topics that relate most to the job for which you are applying. Then practice some more.
Dress: where personal and professional collide
When it comes to dress, put aside personal preferences (for the time being) and err on the side of dressing better than what you think is necessary.
A professional appearance signals that you are focused and ready to work, respectful of the interviewer’s time, and you will take the job seriously.
And that’s what it takes to ace the interview and get an offer of employment!
