You have been invited for an interview with an employer. Even if you change your mind about working for this company, you should definitely go. After all, this is a kind of training and preparation for the next interview. You will gain experience, albeit not great, of successfully completing this stage. And negative experience will allow you to analyze the mistakes that you will not make next time.
An interview is a personal meeting between an employer and an applicant for a vacancy. The purpose of any interview is to find out: whether the candidate meets the requirements of the enterprise; the degree of his professionalism; his aspirations and career opportunities; the ability to quickly adapt to the team; the wishes of the candidate.
Your goal is to convince the employer that you are the most suitable candidate that is ideally suited to the given enterprise or organization. To do this, you need to prepare in advance. Study all available information about the company where you are interviewing. The success of the interview depends on how competently and correctly you can express your thoughts.
How to talk at a job interview? Speak so that the other person hears you well, but not loudly. Speech should be intelligible and clear. Completely exclude the words-parasites "so to speak", "well", "in general". Take short pauses if you find it difficult to answer a question right away. Practice pronouncing difficult words in advance. Do not distort the words and pronounce the endings clearly. Informal expressions are completely unacceptable in an interview. Your ability to concisely and clearly express your thoughts will be a definite plus for the employer.
Self-introduction should not be a retelling of your resume. The employer will most likely be interested in your professional experience, your successful projects. When asked about your shortcomings, point to one, explain how you dealt with it. For example, not very good public speaking, but participating in the presentations helped you develop a successful public speaking style.
You can ask the questions prepared in advance by choosing the right moment. Thus, you will emphasize your interest in working for this enterprise.
And be prepared to answer the following questions: the reason for leaving the previous job; what is interesting about our company; your strengths and weaknesses; what salary you are counting on. Your peace of mind and self-confidence will help you become a worthy applicant for a vacant position.
