Are you about to take the leap and challenge yourself to a new career position? Congratulations on your determination to rise to the top. If you already have an interview scheduled, you’re half way there. When hiring managers schedule interviews, they only select candidates that have the required experience and credentials for the position. The fact that you have an interview means you’ve made the biggest cut. Take these recommendations from the professionals to ensure your interview results in that coveted job offer.
Always remember that the interview is a two way street. This is also an opportunity for the candidate to determine if the company and position are a good fit for their career aspirations. The hiring manager’s job during the interview process is to determine if your demeanor, candor and character is a good fit for the company and the position. Take the time to conduct thorough research on the hiring company. Start with the website. You will get an overview of the products and services available as well as the company culture. After studying the website, you still have additional questions. Be sure to ask these questions of the hiring manger during the interview.
Put your best foot forward during the interview. You will never have a second opportunity to make a first impression. The most important thing to wear to an interview is a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. Get a feel of the company culture from the website to help selecting the most appropriate business attire for the interview. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and make a selection from the great fashionable, and professional, choices available through Soft Surroundings. Avoid prints and loud colored clothing for an interview. Polish your look with a well-tailored jacket and quality trousers. Lighten up on the make up and leave excess bling at home. Realize that your phone case, laptop sleeve and briefcase or backpack all need to have a simple, polished image. They’ve become part of your wardrobe. Shine your shoes, get directions to the interview location and get a great night’s sleep. Wake up knowing you’ll do your very best!
