17 Tips to Impress Your Interviewer

17 1/ Tips to Impress Your Interviewer Interviewing is the key to exploring a candidate in depth for a hiring manager. A candidate must know some basics before entering the interview room to maximize their probability of being selected, and these are: 1. Preparation: Prepare yourself with important information, such as the time slot for the interview, the venue and a little knowledge about the interviewer as well. 自 2. Interview styles: Interviewers may test you with different interview arrangements, such as one-to-one interaction, a group assessment or panel interview. If you know the company's usual style, it can be a great help in preparing yourself. 3. Show up early: Nervousness is very common in job interviews, and if by chance a candidate is delayed while traveling to the interview venue, stress builds further. So be sure to leave early so that you can absorb the surroundings and remain calm. 4. Dress properly: Wear formal wear with elegant looking colors and designs, such as plain black or a grey coat over a white shirt. Do not wear or carry or wear distracters, such as strong perfumes, jewelry or other accessories. Take special care to wear shoes - not sandals – and make sure they are complimentary to your dress and give a formal look. 5. Give a firm handshake: A handshake can immediately indicate your level of confidence and attitude. Too loose shows a lack of confidence, and too tight suggests dominance – find a middle ground. - 6. A warm smile: As soon as you meet the interviewers, give them a warm smile, looking straight into their eyes. This will make them comfortable with you, so keep smiling throughout the interview. 7.

Show competency: Competency based interviews are the most common type of interview, and it tests your capabilities in four core areas: Situations, Tasks, Actions and Results (STAR), so to impress them, consider using phrase like,“The situation was.", "Key tasks involved were..", "I took an action.", "The results were..", etc. in your answer 9. Write important points: While the interviewer is speaking to you, take notes to show them their information is important to you, especially when the person is talking about a company or profile 10. Even your pen should look professional: Do not use a cheap or colorful pen; use one with decent sheen and color. It will make you look professional. 屈 11. Do research: You should have the company's information on your finger tips. This information can be the vision, mission, products, or services, financial position, etc. Read the company website, annual report and news about the company to do research.
